State & Allen Celebrates Women's History Month

State & Allen

No doubt, women make a huge contribution to society, let alone the restaurant industry! The month of March is Women’s History Month, a month when we celebrate and pay tribute to the countless women who have made this nation – and this state – great!

For the restaurant industry specifically, women make an invaluable contribution.

Countless women hold roles as restaurant owners, chefs, wait staff, hostesses, etc. In fact, over HALF of the restaurants in America are owned or co-owned by a woman! Boil that down to a state level: with 41,000+ restaurants in the state of Texas – supporting 1.2 million jobs and accounting for 10% of the state’s employment –it’s safe to say that women are pretty valuable to the overall balance and infrastructure of the restaurant industry!

State and Allen is proud to have many amazing women on staff, and one such woman is Eleanor Moore.

With over thirty years of experience in the restaurant industry, Eleanor recently joined us as the Controller for State & Allen Kitchen + Bar, Savoring Catering, and Calabrese & Winkler Holdings, LLC.

She began her career as a waitress early in her adult life, working her way up to hostess, and then short order cook. In 1980, she was offered an office position and jumped at the opportunity to learn the inner-workings of how a restaurant was run. She loved learning new things and seeing the corporate side of the restaurant business. She stayed with that company for 33 years, developing business savvy and hands-on experience into how a restaurant functions on the business side of things.

State & Allen is proud to have a woman with such experience and knowledge of the restaurant industry leading the charge!

Join us this week for Women’s History Month and the best happy hour, lunch, dinner, or brunch in Uptown Dallas, Texas.
