Introducing Team Smiley 2022!


Attention Smiley enthusiasts! Your newest generation of Team Smiley is here to say hello! With summer approaching at full speed, we’re here to introduce ourselves and where we’ll be heading with Smiley this season. If you’re hoping to catch a Smiley spotting – or you’re just really craving the nostalgic taste of a classic Smiley Cookie – then you’ll want to stay updated on fundraisers, festivals, extravaganzas, races, and other events on our tour this summer. 

To stay up to date on Smiley’s whereabouts, you’ll want to keep an eye on our Find Smiley site to see where he’ll be each weekend this summer. At our events, there’s cookie decorating fun for everyone, exciting prize-winning opportunities, and, of course, the chance to meet Smiley in person and give him a hug! 

For even more smiles, we’ll be keeping the latest information about where Smiley’s heading and Team Smiley’s experiences on this blog. To see more of Smiley’s exciting adventures around the city, check out the Team Smiley Instagram @ENPTeamSmiley

We can’t wait to make some memories with Smiley this summer and spread some smiles around Pittsburgh! 

Get to know our team: 

Meet Maria 

Hi, yinz!! My name is Maria and I am born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. I am currently studying Public Relations at the University of Pittsburgh and will be graduating this December. Hopefully after I graduate, I will be moving to someplace warm, ideally by a beach, but Pittsburgh will forever be No. 1 in my heart. I love the outdoors, watching the sunrises/sunsets, reading, cooking, and spending time with my friends and family. My favorite meal from Eat’n Park has to be, like my friends Allaina & Caroline, the Chicken Bruschetta...melts right in your mouth! One thing that I am excited about in this internship is to grow great friendships and make people smile! 😊  

Meet Eric 

Hello, Friends! My name is Eric. I was born and raised in Greensburg, PA about 45 minutes outside of Pittsburgh. I am currently pursuing a major in Marketing and a minor in Communications at Juniata College. When I am not hanging out with Smiley, I spend a lot of time on the diamond playing baseball, hitting the links golfing, and snowboarding with my friends. I am looking forward to traveling around the Greater Pittsburgh area and passing my smile to everyone that I am fortunate enough to meet. When visiting an Eat’n Park location I will eat anything that has the Homemade Ranch involved! 

Meet Abby 

Hi, all! My name is Abby and I am from right here in Pittsburgh! I have been going to Eat’n Park for as long as I can remember and have spent many birthdays and fun nights in the Waterfront location. I will be attending Point Park University in the fall for PR, Advertising, and Social Media. I'm very excited to get to see all of your smiling faces this summer with my friend Smiley.  When I am not driving Smiley around town, I like to sing and find the best coffee shops (but it's hard to beat Eat’n Park’s coffee 😉). If you see me out and about with the crew, ask me about how much I love the Bacon Grilled Cheese!  

Meet Caroline 

Hi, all!! My name is Caroline, and I grew up in Pittsburgh, PA. I go to school at Smith College in Northampton, MA and play field and ice hockey there. I am majoring in economics with a minor in exercise and sports science. When I am not out there playing sports or going on adventures with Smiley, I like to cook and hang out with my dog Mac. My favorite Eat’n Park meal is the Chicken Bruschetta with a side of the daily soup. One thing I am looking forward to this summer is getting to tour around the Steel City with my good friend Smiley and hand out thousands of cookies.   

Meet Allaina 

Hello! I’m Allaina and I’m a senior at Pitt studying Economics and Nonfiction English Writing. I can’t wait to spread smiles all over Pittsburgh – as someone from State College, PA, I still have a lot of exploring to do in and around the city. Aside from decorating cookies and running around with Smiley, I love biking, reading, drawing, sewing, and anything else that allows me to exercise my creativity! My all-time favorite Eat ‘n Park meal is the Chicken Bruschetta (especially when it’s paired with a Smiley Cookie for dessert), but I’m excited to spend my summer attempting to try everything I can on the restaurant’s menu. I can’t wait to create fun digital content with Smiley and explore each area of the Pittsburgh community along with Team Smiley—and spread as many smiles as possible along the way!
