Meet Adriana-Women In Charge
Adriana Efstathiou, Facility Manager Chow Restaurants
I grew up in Castro Valley and started working in my parents’ restaurant when I was 14 — first as a dishwaser, then pantry chef, then to the front of the house and was serving by the time I was 16. My family owned restaurants and catering businesses the majority of my life, so needless to say the restaurant industry runs in my blood.
My background is Greek, and the one thing Greek’s love more than dancing is food! It was a big deal for my family when I became vegetarian, and eventually vegan, because meat and cheese are such a big part of Greek food culture.
