Betty DeHart, House Manager at FRESH,
is Employee of the Month!
Betty grew up near Lansing, Michigan and has lived in North Carolina for the last 10 years. She is married to Matt DeHart who is a preschool teacher at Montreat Morning School. The couple met at the Texaco in Black Mountain where Matt came in daily for a soda even though he could have quenched his thirst for free at his workplace, Pizza Hut. Betty’s legendary charm caused him to keep coming back for more, which is exactly what our customers see in Betty.
Betty says of her draw to food service, “I got into the restaurant business when I was young, like many teens looking for a job, but discovered that I enjoyed talking with customers, watching families interact and having a one-on-one relationship with people.” She worked at the Morning Glory for 3 years before it moved to Cheshire.
Betty says she drove past FRESH many times it was under construction. “One day I decided to go in and see what it was all about. I talked to the owners, Courtney and Mark, and went home feeling excited about the possibility of working with people who shared my food values.”
“I have such picky standards for my own family’s table and I am equally picky about the food I serve others. I have always been aware of healthy food and as an adult I see how important it is to eat healthy and shop locally.”
Betty and Matt have three beautiful children, who you may see on occasion at the tall tables eating pizza. Noah Matthew, 7, is a second grader at Black Mountain Primary; Coralee Louise, 4 and Maura Grace, 3 are both at Montreat morning school. You will find the DeHart family shopping on Saturday mornings at the Black Mountain Tailgate Market. She also is doing her part in sharing her love of quality food and gardening with children. She is the gardening coordinator at Black Mountain Primary school.
When she’s not training new staff, serving customers or managing the front of the house at FRESH, Betty spends her free time organizing community events and volunteering at her children’s school.
“I love being part of the fresh family. I am proud to serve local, fresh food to our customers.”
