Living Our Values

Values are more than what you SAY, they are the things that we DO each and every day. The way we speak to our co-workers; the joy we feel when a new customer comes by; the pride we take in our work and in our company. Do these values resonate with you? If so, you just may be the person we’re looking for to take these key ingredients and weave them into your own recipe for success at Gold Star!

Be Part of Something Remarkable!

Serving each other in a hospitable way is a way of life for us. Hospitality involves authentically showing respect for coworkers and guests, providing for their needs and treating them as family. When we deliver remarkable hospitality to our guests, we lift their spirits and in turn they will lift the spirits of those around them…it’s contagious and so “remarkable” they will share their experience with others!

Remarkable Hospitality = Happier People = More Happy People = A Better World To Live In
