How Isa’s passion and energy carved her GYG career journey

Isabela (Isa) Silveira has a passion and enthusiasm for the success of Guzman y Gomez that is simply unmatched!

Where her abiding love for GYG comes from though we may never know. Could it be from her start working in-restaurant? From the countless GYG new restaurant openings she’s supported? Or her role at Hola Central as an HR advisor? Wherever this love for the business may come from, it has remained consistent in every role and has now been cultivated in her current role as GYG’s People Experience Engagement Partner.

Isa lives and breathes the GYG values and her energy is contagious to everyone she meets. She believes that her duty as a PX Engagement Partner is to guide the business and employees together to bring our values and culture to life every single day. 

While Isa embodies all of our values, one that sticks out to her, in particular, is ‘Got your back’. Isa understands that when you get quality employee feedback, you can transform the business to allow everyone to be their most effective selves while having fun. Isa asks, ‘where else can you dance salsa, be yourself, and serve great food at the same time?!

Unsurprisingly, Isa’s favourite time at GYG is when a new restaurant opens and she gets to share her love with our guests, “the adrenaline of seeing a massive line out the door and the crew on the other side of the counter delivering the best guest service we can is something that you need to experience first hand to understand HOW GOOD GYG CULTURE IS”.

Isa isn’t exaggerating when she talks about the energy of our $5 opening days. The music is pumping, the Mariachi band is singing and people all sharing their love for GYG, is what sets GYG apart. 

We feel extremely grateful to have someone like Isa working at Hola Central, and her tangible energy will continue to inspire us all whether it be in Hola Central or out in the field at a new restaurant!
