The Louisiana Restaurant Association (LRA) is pleased to name Alicde “Paul” Gobert of the Petroleum Club of Lafayette as a Restaurant Legend. He was recognized at the LRA Acadiana Chapter Restaurant Legends Banquet at the Petroleum Club, January 19, 2015.
The Restaurant Legends Award recognizes the long-term dedication of employees of the restaurant industry, with 20 or more years of service at one establishment.
With 22 years of experience and service at the Petroleum Club, Gobert exemplifies the satisfaction of making his job a lifelong and rewarding career. He is the restaurant’s buffet line attendant.
“For 22 years, Paul has ridden his bike to work, rain or shine” said Petroleum Club General Manager and LRA Director John O’Meara. “That dedication is what makes employees like Paul so special. We like to say at the Petroleum Club that Paul’s demeanor may change by the minute, but he always has the solution to any problem. We are lucky to have Paul on our team.”
Gobert joins more than 130 individuals in our state recognized by the LRA through its Restaurant Legends program. Collectively, these industry professionals have more than 4,000 years of service to Louisiana restaurants and suppliers.
