Lunch was on Olive Garden

New restaurant near mall treats children from Hagerstown Day Nursery to spaghetti

New restaurant near mall treats children from Hagerstown Day Nursery to spaghetti

January 18, 2008|By JANET HEIM

It was the first "hospi" run since the official opening of the Hagerstown Olive Garden and the "customers" were thrilled.

The recipients of a free lunch - spaghetti, salad and breadsticks - were the students and staff at Hagerstown Day Nursery.

Whether the children called it "sghettis" or pasta, they all gave it a thumbs up as they happily munched away.

General manager Jason Rakaczewski, along with Culinary Manager Justin Tennant, both from the Hagerstown restaurant, helped serve the children, along with Ian Nason. Nason is a certified trainer with Olive Garden and travels to new locations to help with their grand openings.

"It's a way to give back to the community and thank them for welcoming us to the area," Rakaczewski said.

He added that the Hagerstown preschool was chosen by the corporate office and that the local restaurant hopes to do a hospi run for an organization in the area about once a week.
