At Darden, we understand that in order to encourage superior performance from our team members, we must create and maintain a compelling place to work - a place where people can grow and learn enduring life skills. Our goal is to make working at Olive Garden and Darden more than just a job. Developing our people is a cornerstone of our business model, and we're proud of the fact that:

• Together, Olive Garden and Darden promote nearly 1,000 team members a year into management.
• 50% of all of our restaurant managers come from our hourly ranks; and
• 99% of all our restaurant General Managers - are promoted from within.


Community Involvement

At Olive Garden, we want the experience of warmth and caring to extend beyond our restaurant walls and into every community where we live and serve. Throughout the U.S. and Canada we serve our communities through a variety of local efforts. For example, for over 15 years, every Olive Garden nationwide celebrates first responders on Labor Day by donating a special “thank you” lunch to a local organization. Through this annual initiative, more than 10,000 deliveries have been made to honor community heroes for their ongoing, dedicated service to local communities.
