THOMASVILLE – Grill master Sireatha Glenn was recently named one of the top steak masters in the country.
The Thomasville LongHorn Steakhouse grill master took home the regional win after competing in the Steak Master Series, an epic culinary competition where the restaurant’s grilling experts are put to the test on their relentless execution of grilling quality steaks for each guest, according to LongHorn representatives.
Glenn is one of 60 team members from across the country to achieve the distinction, out of the more than 5,000 invited to participate in the competition.
“Every LongHorn Steakhouse restaurant in the country has a team of certified grill masters who are specially trained in the art of grilling,” said Thomas Hall, executive vice president of operations at LongHorn Steakhouse. “We’re all about quality, and Sireatha has proved day in and day out that she is passionate about serving great quality steaks to our guests. That passion and expertise really came to life during the competition.”
Glenn, a Thomasville native who has worked at LongHorn for eight years, said her favorite part of the job is the opportunity for development.
Here are a few things to know about Glenn:
• “My grandmother taught me how to cook,” Glenn said. “I was taught to be patient, and that respect takes you a long way.”
• Her goal is to eventually become a director of operations at LongHorn.
• “The hardest part about the Steak Master Series was wanting everyone to win,” she said. “What I do means the world to me. I love putting smiles on guests’ faces.”
The Fourth Annual Steak Master Series, which awards cash prizes totaling more than $200,000, observes "LongHorn’s commitment to quality and craftsmanship on the grill," according to restaurant representatives. "This year’s competition began at the restaurant level, where grill cooks across more than 510 LongHorn locations competed to move on to the regional round."
