FACES of Olive Garden | Lacey Gearhart

At Olive Garden, our team members serve as the faces of our brand and ambassadors of our core values. They make an impression on every guest who walks through our front doors, delivering great food, an engaging atmosphere and unmatched service. We are strong and successful because of our people, each with diverse talents and backgrounds, who respect each other and enjoy working side by side to serve our guests and communities

These are the FACES of Olive Garden.

Even as a 16-year-old restaurant host, Lacey Gearhart put her heart and soul into the job. And that passion for people – and Darden – has stayed with her throughout the ensuing years. It’s a driving force in her latest role as general manager.    'I just love Olive Garden. I love what I do … and I’m proud of our culture. I’ll be here as long as they’ll have me!'

Lacey is most proud of the annual event hosted by nine Darden restaurants throughout western Pennsylvania, in which they offer food – and thanks – to volunteer firefighters and others who make their communities great. Her inspiration – Mister Rogers – would be proud!
