“At the heart of it all, we are a human resources company. Our people separate our restaurants from the pack.” – Randy Schoch, CEO Desert Island Restaurants
On Thursday, October 19th, 2017, Head Server and Trainer, Sherry Dierauer, received a prestigious award at the Foodist Awards in Arizona.

She understands what true hospitality is and is a great example of what we love to see from all Desert Island employees.”
