Edith Gubacsi, director of dining services
Eurest, Mohegan Sun Casino
Nominator: Mary Beth Toewe, communications director, Eurest
“Creating great guest experiences, not only for our customers but also for her associates, Edith Gubacsi, DDS, Mohegan Sun, always has an upbeat and professional attitude that allows her to successfully prioritize the needs of over 100 team members across three shifts, seven days a week. It is her engagement and willingness to do whatever is necessary for our business that is paramount during these times.
Edith began her career in the industry as a bartender, but, lucky for us, she was drawn to Compass Group, starting as a third shift, front of the house manager for five years before becoming the director of dining services at Mohegan Sun for the past year.
Read below for Edith’s story:
‘My passion is serving great food and seeing satisfied guests. I am always striving to learn new things and expand on my experience. I truly enjoy helping people and making sure that my team members are taken care of is my top priority. We serve about 5,000 guests daily, and we keep everything fresh through all three shifts: full and inviting. A fun fact about me is that I used to live in Miami, FL and had a 4.5i Mustang GT that I would take up to West Palm to the track there and race during the summer when they had amateur night. It was lots of fun, even if I wasn’t the fastest.’”
