Gustavo Mendibles was working at Eegee's (a fast-food restaurant chain in Tucson), but it didn't give him enough hours. He started off baking at Cafe 54, then did prep work, dishwashing, worked as a line cook. Born and raised in Tucson, he's never left Arizona. He finds it peaceful and friendly here.
Mendibles' goal is to be a chef at Olive Garden.
