Over the next couple of weeks we’ll be introducing you to some of the awesome people who helped create HuHot Mongolian Grill and build the company into the restaurant concept you know and love. This is Molly O’Shea, our Chief Brand Officer! Molly works at our corporate office in beautiful Denver, Colorado and has been with the company for over 10 years helping us grow and stay strong to our roots.
What’s your favorite sauce combo at HuHot? Burn-Your-Village BBQ, Black Thai Peanut, Kung Pow..Yow! and lime juice.
Your HuHot plate will ALWAYS have this on it: Mushrooms and Cilantro.
Where did you grow up? Outside…on a horse, in a river, hiking a mountain. (Missoula, MT)
What is your favorite travel destination? Turkey, Czech Republic, Morocco, Thailand and anywhere with my kids.
What do you like most about your job? The freedom to make my own hours and the opportunity to work alongside and learn from my mom and brother. At the end of the day though, the continuous challenge of trying to build and grow a brand where employees stay for 20+ years, that serves good quality food and listens to the customers is the hardest and most rewarding thing I do at HuHot. Oh, and did I mention I can bring my dog Herman to work everyday?
Favorite beer? Yes please :). But if I have to choose one: Kettlehouse’s Cold Smoke.
Funniest work story? Getting on and walking off a flight to Rochester, NY, when I was supposed to be going to Rochester, MN to help open the new store. I got off the plane in Chicago when the flight attendant announced where the flight was headed.
