Amanda Lehmann, Director of Operations for the First Watch locations (two in Springfield, one in Joplin, one in Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri; and now three in Northwest Arkansas), came to the company two years ago "from what you know as Panera," she says. The hard- working woman in the chef coat can be found cooking, hosting and guiding her staff in best practices at any time in her numerous locales. "Serving people is the best part about working for First Watch," Amanda notes. "I love being in customer service, and having the fresh food focus just feels right. It feels good to me." Dedicated to featuring fresh seasonal produce from local growers whenever possible, First Watch is always coming up with exciting new ways to combine healthy and delicious. Ordering the Tri-Athlete, for example, gets you an egg white omelet with house-roasted Crimini mushrooms, onions, tomatoes and green chilies; and it comes with housemade pico de gallo, whole grain artisan toast, all-natural house preserves and fresh fruit. If you're into counting calories or pinching pennies, you'll be thrilled to hear that this champion's breakfast crosses the finish line under ten dollars and only 550 calories! But that's just a taste of what First Watch has to offer. Corporate Chef Shane Schaibly has his finger on the pulse of the industry, and is always keeping things fun and fresh, farm to fork. He's putting out dishes like the Elevated Egg Sandwich; with its over-easy cage-free egg, bacon, Gruyere cheese, fresh smashed avocado, mayo and lemon dressed arugula on a brioche bun and a side of fresh, seasoned potatoes! Healthy eating is commendable, but if you're into brunching, you needn't worry. Give their French Toast a try, and you'll see that Chef Schaibly and the First Watch crew definitely have your taste buds in mind with their custard-dipped, thick-cut brioche bread topped with whipped butter and powered cinnamon sugar. Or indulge in the Lemon Ricotta Pancakes, which, in addition to their humongous size, get fresh, whipped ricotta cheese added to their multigrain batter, and are topped with marinated berries and creamy lemon curd. Talk about fresh! Everything here is made from scratch, in house, from their French Toast batter and baked goods to veggies sliced and juices squeezed Fresh. Every. Day. Every season brings new deliciousness to First Watch, where right now you can indulge in their Holey Donuts, cinnamon sugar- dusted cake donut holes with chocolate sauce and mixed berry compote for dipping. Or get a little East Coast with their Loaded Smoked Salmon Bagel—a toasted NY everything bagel topped with scallion cream cheese, sliced cucumber, tomato, Wild Alaska Smoked Sockeye Salmon, house-pickled red onions and lemon dressed arugula. Or spice things up with their Hacienda Hash, featuring fresh seasoned potato, chorizo and red pepper hash topped with two basted cage-free eggs, Cheddar, Monterey Jack, spicy ketchup, sour cream, fresh smashed avocado and cilantro. With so much so much feel-good freshness; First Watch is the new go-to for the greatest breakfast, brunch and lunch experience. If you're looking for a good place to start, try Director of Operations Amanda Lehmann's favorite dish: The Chickichanga! Everything here is made from scratch, in house, from their French Toast batter and baked goods to veggies sliced and juices squeezed Fresh. Every. Day. september 27-OctOber 4, 2020 What's up! 43
