Stories of Commitment and Growth at LACENA BY NOLA: A Glimpse into Our Longest-Serving Employees' Experience

At the heart of LACENA BY NOLA, a company that has been steadily growing, lies a story of dedication and a passion for food. But beyond the culinary delights served on each plate, what truly distinguishes this restaurant is its strong sense of community, family, and teamwork. We want to share the heartwarming stories of three of our longest-serving employees who have witnessed our growth and contributed significantly to the essence of our family business. From different entry points into the company, Orialis Shelton, Teodora Salciuan, and Marcel Markestein provide a unique insight into their experiences at LACENA BY NOLA.

Orialis Shelton joined LACENA BY NOLA in 2020, just as the world was shaken by the pandemic. At a time when many were distancing themselves from restaurants, Orialis chose to embrace the challenge and become part of the LACENA family. She says, "For me, it was essential to work in such a welcoming and family-oriented environment at the Albir restaurant, working alongside the bosses, giving it my all as one of the team."

Teodora Salciuan, on the other hand, has been with the company since 2018, long enough to witness its evolution. "What I value most about working at LACENA BY NOLA is that, being a hardworking, honest, and humble person, LACENA opens doors and helps you grow both as a worker and as a person." Marcel Markestein is one of the company's veterans, having been with LACENA BY NOLA for over 7 years. His experience is unique as he had the opportunity to work alongside his daughter for an entire summer.

Marcel joyfully shares, "Working with my daughter was fantastic; she worked for 6 weeks during the summer, then went back to the Netherlands, but that time was very good, and it was a beautiful experience."

At LACENA BY NOLA, we grow together as a family and team. The passion for food and commitment to the community are the values that drive our company as we continue to expand. We are grateful to Orialis, Teodora, and Marcel for their valuable contributions and dedication over the years. Their stories reflect what makes LACENA BY NOLA so special: a growing company that never forgets its family essence.
