Member Spotlight

Samantha Hawkins

General Manager

Urban Egg a daytime eatery

What brought you to start your business or get into your industry?  My passion to bring joy to others and my love of food. I found that most things we do in life are surrounded by food and every major event people go through, good or bad, usually involves a meal. I wanted to be a part of making people feel comfortable and safe no matter what they are going through with a delicious meal. Urban Egg embodies that.


What do you love most about what you do?  The people. Getting to know and meet so many wonderful people throughout the years, we get to watch families grow and change and employees blossom into these amazing people as they grow and learn. 

 

How can the Chamber help you?  I think the chamber can help us with bringing more awareness to our catering options.
