LAFAYETTE, LA - Bryan Broussard of Breaux Bridge recently was recognized for 20 years of service by Pizza Hut, upper Lafayette.
"This is the first and only job I've ever had - and I don't plan on retiring soon," smiled Broussard in an on-site interview. He added that he really likes the people that come in to the restaurant and especially his co-workers.
District Manager for Pizza Hut Donovan Royer said Broussard is truly an inspiration to those who work around him. In fact he believes he is one of the longest employed Pizza Hut employees in his area. Because of his years of service, Bryan will be awarded points where he will be able to "cash them in" for an item. He said he already has chosen a stereo system for his home!
Some of Broussard's duties include making the pizza sauce, unloading the delivery truck, checking inventory, and making sure the property is free of litter.
Broussard was employed at Pizza Hut through LARC's Supported Work Program, which finds individuals community job placement. His current supervisor, Karen Gardiner said "I'm very proud of Bryan. He always has a smile on his face and enjoys his job. I can tell he gives 100 percent."
Being employed for 20 years has been quite beneficial to Broussard. He lives in his own home, drives to and from work and leads a very full life. In fact, he is planning his two-week October vacation which will include hunting dove - his favorite sport.
Gardiner visits Pizza Hut and other employers twice a month insuring employees are performing their various duties and are satisfied with their working conditions. She is also responsible for finding individuals that LARC serves community job placement should they wish to work off of LARC's New Hope Road campus.
