Who Do You Know? | Benjamin Garcia

Benjamin_01  Fun with Benjamin

Benjamin Garcia is one of the newest kids on the Epicurean block, and boy does he fit the bill. He sports a matching set of dimples, a quick laugh, and Capri Sun in the fridge. But under all of that contagious charm,  you will find a savvy business guy who loves what he does and does it really well. In fact, he was recently awarded Manager of the Quarter by the head honchos at Epicurean Culinary Group. That Capri Sun really does the job!
