Introducing our new monthly spotlight...Ryan Ambrose!
Ryan, aka “Ambrose", started working for Tom Wahl’s 5 years ago, and it has been his only job ever since! As the assistant Food Truck operator based at our Canandaigua location, Ryan loves the traveling aspect of his job and the friends he works with most of all. “I love traveling around from town to town in the food truck and being a part of all the different festivals that go on in our community. The people I work with also make my job as great as it is!” Self-described as being hardworking, determined and positive, Ryan advises new employees to learn from their mistakes.
Ryan is a graduate of the Canandaigua Academy and is currently enrolled at SUNY Canton, where he studies Homeland Security. As a new father to a beautiful 8 month old boy, Ryan states that his son has brought his family together in the most loving way possible. And family means a great deal to Ryan…his two brothers also work at Tom Wahl’s out of the Canandaigua location. “…we make a great team. Everyone loves when the three Ambrose’s are all on the same shift!”
