Carol Kusan Celebrates 50 Years with Eat'n Park

Cheers to 50 years! We are so proud to recognize our friend and fellow team member, Carol Kusan, for an incredible 50 years at our Whitehall restaurant. 

Not only has Carol been with Eat’n Park for five decades, but she’s remarkably spent all of those decades at the same restaurant in Whitehall! She’s been an asset to that restaurant for all 50 years as a server (and even helped to train servers as a supervisor!). When she first started out in the early ‘70s, she often worked the midnight shift because her husband worked during the day, and Eat’n Park was a company that allowed her the flexibility to work around her unique needs and schedule during that time in her life. 

Since then, she’s made countless friends along the way, including her regular guests and fellow team members, whom she fondly calls some of her closest friends – some of them even call her second mom! In fact, some of her fellow team members actually do call her “Mom,” as her son Larry, daughter Andrea, and daughter-in-law Corine all worked alongside Carol at Whitehall during her five-decade tenure. 

Carol has so much to be proud of – she is a breast cancer survivor, and she organizes charity events to raise money for Eat’n Park’s Caring for Kids Campaign. When it comes to helping a fellow team member in need, friends say she’s one of the first people to ask about taking up a collection to help and would do anything for them. 

While many might retire after 50 years, Carol’s just getting started! She plans to continue creating smiles for our guests and her friends at her Whitehall restaurant. Our CEO Jeff Broadhurst and COO Mercy Senchur were so honored to surprise Carol at Whitehall on February 8, and to present her with a mini fridge for her newly renovated basement, a project she’s been working on for quite some time!

We’re so grateful for team members like you, Carol! It’s people like you that make our Eat’n Park family what it is. Thank you for 50 years’ worth of smiles, and congratulations!
