I worked for Mannings from 1958 when I was a busboy at the new Valley Fair unit in San Jose. In 1960 at the age of 21 I entered the Mgm. training program at the Geary St location. Marty Brill and Willard Houghton were upper mgm at that time. I was personnel mgr at the Geary store with 93 employees at that time. What a job! In early 1962 I was moved back to Valley Fair as food production mgr and then into the contract feeding division running the industrial facilities such as Kaiser Center and Hewlett Packard.
The food when we prepared from scratch was the best. Would you know what happened to the old formula cards (recipes)?
I left Mannings around July 1962 to go to Varian Associates as a mechanical component buyer.
Hope to hear from you.
