"During my time as a Student Cafe Executive Officer (SCEO)®, I learned SO much about myself not only as a leader but as a person in general. I also learned how to interact with and lead many different individuals, which is a very important life skill. I truly believe my experience operating a cafe while being in college led me to my next adventure - District Manager for Aldi - after graduation! Thank you, Saxbys!"

- Isabel Thompson, Penn State University, Spring 2021 SCEO; District Manager, Aldi

"Saxbys was the highlight of my college career. Not only did I learn how to manage a team and run a business, but I learned that I could overcome any obstacles thrown my way and that I was way tougher than I believed. Saxbys also helped me discover what I wanted to do with my career after college. I will forever be thankful for my time at Saxbys and the friends I made while I was there."
