The year was 1985. Coca-Cola released New Coke. Back To The Future was the highest grossing film of the year. Wreckage from the Titanic was discovered. Microsoft released the first version of Windows. And our most tenured crewmember, Alan Lehman began working at Pagliacci. When Alan first submitted his application to become a dishwasher at the Broadway Pizzeria, he never realized Pagliacci was a place he’d call home for a quarter of a century. After spending 11 years at the Capitol Hill location, he transferred over to the Commissary and has a hand in consistently creating a key component to everyone’s Pagliacci experience – the dough. Alan’s mild manner and humble smile are a staple at the Commissary and our dough making operation. So what do you get a guy to celebrate such an amazing milestone? We surprised Alan with a MacBook and printer along with a plaque and cake. His new tools will come in handy to keep up his passion for creating art, photography and music. We expect he’ll only break long enough to keep up with all of the Seattle sports teams – M’s, Storm, Hawks and Huskies. Congratulations Alan!
