Golden Coconuts!

Most companies have Employees of the Month, here at LuLu’s we have Golden Coconuts! A coconut, or “golden nugget”, caught at a Zulu Mardi Gras Parade in New Orleans is the most prized possession of New Orleans Mardi Gras. Since our LuLu’s anniversary (company wide) is on Fat Tuesday, the same day that Zulu rolls, and given the powerful influence that the great city of New Orleans had and continues to have on Lucy Buffett, it was only fitting that the person that best exemplifies the spirit of LuLu’s be crowned the Coconut of the month and be awarded their very own coconut! We have a Coconut of the Month at each location and each year we crown a Coconut of the Year of all the monthly winners!

Favorite Moment at LuLu’s: I was taking an allergy order at a table for a little boy who has never eaten out at a restaurant before because of his severe, multiple allergies. After I explained our whole allergy protocol and how he would be just fine and safe eating with us, the little boy’s mother started crying tears of happiness which led me to tearing up with her. She would not stop thanking me for taking care of her son. This is definitely a moment that I will never forget!
