Meet Matthew Marchand

Matthew Marchand's career in the hospitality industry has taken him across the length and breadth of the United States. His journey began with a host position at a restaurant in the Grand Canyon National Park. That job soon launched a park hopping expedition across the nation, taking Matthew as far afield as Alaska's Mt. Denali and the Florida Everglades. In the span of two decades he worked at many of the nation's most treasured landmarks, including Yellowstone, the Virgin Islands, Death Valley, and the Olympic Peninsula.

During his time as a nomadic restaurant worker, Matthew learned every aspect of industry life, working as a dishwasher, cook, host, buser, server, bartender, and eventually manager. At Yellowstone he served as a corporate trainer, conducting detailed workshops to make sure employees could consistently and effectively service clientele. Now he's bringing his decades of expertise to the Grand Restaurant Group!

Today Matthew proudly serves as the general manager of Giaola Italian Kitchen, a popular, new Italian restaurant — located in scenic Bressi Ranch. There Matthew has been hard at work developing training material and operational processes that he believes will enable new employees to excel in a high stakes environment.
