“I’m Amanda Moore, and I am a Field Training Coach for Tacala’s East Region. I started my Tacala journey over 25 years ago as has a part-time cashier while in high school, and I never imagined it would lead to such a rewarding career. I’ve worked in each restaurant position, including being a Market Training Leader at our Shallowford Road location in Chattanooga, Tennessee. During this time I’ve had the opportunity to work and learn from some of the best leaders, who believed in me and allowed me to “grow and glow” with a company that truly cares for their people like family. My goal is to pay it forward and pass along that same love and understanding to those that I now have the privilege to lead and teach.”
