and Restaurant Management, Goldstein knew he wanted to get into
the industry ever since he was a teenager when he began working as
a busboy and dishwasher at a local restaurant.
ďHanging around the
chefs and bartenders was the highlight. The chefs were kings and
the bartenders were like celebrities; I thought it was the coolest
thing in the world. I worked my way up to becoming a server, and
on Sundays I picked up a shift working as a short order cook at a
local diner, slinging eggs and pancakes. I loved every second of
working in these settings. When I went off to college, it just
seemed like a natural fit to study hospitality,Ē Goldstein said.
