Behind the Greens: Zach Gieck

"Take care of your people."

We finally had a chance to catch up with relative newbie, Zach Gieck, general manager of our Lone Tree location in our latest installment of Behind the Greens. He may have come from a beloved competitor, but it's easy to see why we love him now (and think you will too!). His management philosophy is plain and simple: Take care of your people.

 

Tell us a bit about your team here. 

I love the people that I work with - we've built a very unique team here. My people are happy to come to work and tey want to work hard for me because they know I'll work hard for them. I have their back and in times of need, they have my back.

Behind the Greens: Zach

"My family was so skeptical that I work in a salad shop...like 'what do I eat there?!' But when I offer them things like steak or avocado, they're excited. You can eat it for dinner! It's not just a side salad, it's a full meal with a balance of everything." -Zach G, general manager of MAD Greens​ - Lone Tree in the latest Behind The Greens madgr.co/BehindTheGreens_Zach

What would you tell someone who's unfamiliar with MAD Greens? 

Even the people that aren't healthy eaters (like my family members...who are skeptical that I work in a salad shop), when I offer them the different things like with steak or avocado, they're excited. Meat eaters too. It really is a great meal. You can eat it for dinner! It's not just a side salad, it's a full meal and you really get a balance of everything.

 

Tell us more about your prep process. 

What makes MAD Greens so good is the passion that we put into everything we do, starting with the prep. Our proteins are marinating 24 hours ahead of time. Anyone who's doing the dressing has to be what we call a Certified Mixologist. You go through extensive training to figure out how to make our 21 dressings, from scratch, every day. 

 

What about the ingredients you use? 

We use top notch ingredients. You come in here and you get what you pay for. That old saying is so true. We offer a quality ingredient for the money that you spend.
