Meat & Greet: Aniya
If you’ve ever placed a curbside order at our New Castle, DE location, chances are good that you’ve been helped by the team member we’re featuring in today’s Meat & Greet – Aniya!
Q: How long have you worked at Stoltzfus Meats and what do you do in your role?
A: I have worked at Stoltzfus Meats for 4 1/2 years. I was recently promoted to Curbside Supervisor. In my role, I provide customers with the products they need from all of our stands at the New Castle Farmers Market.
Q: What does a typical workday look like for you?
A: Long story short, I do laps around the market. I am never in the same area for too long. A typical workday starts with me restocking and fixing up the products in the Meats case. After that, I refill our other necessities/supplies. Next, I work on any curbside orders that I have that morning. Once they are all finished, I set up the Curbside area outside with the sign, table, clipboard, and receipt stick. After all of this, it should be opening time. I call numbers in the front with the rest of the crew. The remainder of my day is pretty random. I speak to multiple customers on the phone, taking/filling curbside orders as well as pickup inside orders. I run curbside orders outside to customers. I help customers in the front, refill anything that’s running low, clean, tend to any customer situations, and do anything else I can to help things run smoothly. Sometimes I even help out at other stands. Then at the end of the night I help close.
Q: What is the best part of your day?
A: The best part of my day is working with the other employees. I am at the market so much that it’s like I live there. All of the employees have become my second family. It’s great seeing and talking to them every weekend.
Q: Outside of work, what are some things you like to do?
A: Outside of work I enjoy hanging out with my friends. I might go out to dinner with them, a concert, shopping, traveling, etc.
Q: What is your favorite Stoltzfus Meats product?
A: We make a lot of products, so it is hard to choose just one as my favorite. However, my favorite Stoltzfus Meats product is the Vidalia Onion steak sauce. I put it on everything. Everyone always says that the company should sponsor me.
We so appreciate all that Aniya has brought to our team at the New Castle Farmers Market. The next time you visit the Stoltzfus stands, make sure to say hi to Aniya!
