Summer is heating up, and another season full of festivals, fundraisers, and community events is just beginning for our newest team members: Team Smiley.
Every year, a group of fresh new faces joins us to take Smiley and his Cookie Cruiser on a summer tour. You might find them at a charity walk in your neighborhood, or maybe you’ll see them at one of our restaurants, or perhaps you’ll cross paths at a local festival. Wherever you meet them, you can be guaranteed one thing: you’ll walk away with a smile!
They’ll be blogging about the events they visit, as well as sharing their photos in our photo gallery throughout the summer. But who are these die-hard Smiley dynamos? Well, read on!
Without further ado, here they are: Team Smiley!
Hi, my name is Judy and I am majoring in marketing and public relations at Baldwin-Wallace College, near Cleveland, Ohio. My hometown is Center Township, northwest of Pittsburgh in Beaver County. My favorite meal at Eat’n Park is the Buffalo Chicken Salad. Yum! For dessert, my favorite Smiley Cookies are the Halloween ones with the adorable candy corn eyes and nose. I cannot wait for all of the fun in the sun this summer with the Cruiser Team!
Hi everyone! My name is Aryn and I am a Public Relations major at Penn State. I am so honored to be a part of Team Smiley 2011. Not only does Eat ’n Park have a family friendly environment, but they give back to the community that helped make them a success. My favorite thing at Eat ’n Park (other than the Smiley Cookies, of course) would be the milkshakes, which are great during the sizzling hot summers here in Pittsburgh. My family and I have grown up with Eat’n Park and I am proud to call myself a member of Team Smiley.
Hi! My name is Juliann and I am currently a senior Advertising/Public Relations Major at Point Park University. I love traveling, especially to the Caribbean. I also love blogging, yoga, dancing, and giving back to the Pittsburgh community in any way. My absolute favorite thing from the Eat'n Park menu is pie. From Strawberry to Coconut Crème, I enjoy them all! Other than my passion for pie, I love to make kids smile. I am so grateful to spend my summer spreading smiles with my fellow Cookie Cruiser team and our good friend Smiley. I look forward to a fun-filled summer serving as a brand ambassador for one of the most iconic brands in Western Pennsylvania.
Hello everyone! My name is Lauren and I will be a senior advertising and public relations major at Point Park University. In my free time, I like going camping or watching really old movies. I’m born and raised in the Pittsburgh area, so leaving for college wasn’t really an option for me. I love everything about this city, especially Eat’n Park! It just wouldn’t be the ‘burgh without that iconic Smiley Cookie! Eat’n Park is a great company to work for. They really care about their team members, guests, and the community. I am really excited that I get to be a part of that on Team Smiley. I am a very happy person and I love to make people laugh. So make sure “yinz” come out and meet Smiley this summer. You can put a smile on a cookie and our team will put a smile on your face!
Hi! My name is Shayne and I am a proud new member of Team Smiley. I was born and raised in the town of Sewickley, PA where I live with my mother, sister and black lab, Max. I am currently a student at Loyola University of Maryland in Baltimore, where I am majoring in Communications and minoring in Sociology. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking and traveling. I actually have the amazing opportunity to be studying abroad in Belgium for my junior year of college, which I am eagerly anticipating. I am also an avid runner and am currently training for my first half marathon in July. I’m very excited to be a part of the Eat’n Park family and am looking forward to celebrating Smiley’s 25th birthday with all of you this summer!
