Alex Norton, Senior Accountant · Food Fight
Alex Norton is originally from Kenosha, WI. She moved to Madison when her boyfriend (now husband) took a job in the Madison area. “I knew I didn't want to stay in Kenosha but still wanted to be close to my family. I had just graduated college and it seemed like the perfect time to make the move.” Before working at Food Fight Alex hadn't worked in the restaurant industry. She started her accounting career working for CPA firms. Upon seeing Food Fight was hiring she jumped on the opportunity figuring with all the different restaurant concepts the work would be challenging and diverse. She wasn’t disappointed and now she loves working in the food service industry. “Food brings people together whether that be families, friends, or even strangers. I love going into a restaurant and feeling that sense of togetherness with the customers and the restaurant staff. There is a big emphasis on the team dynamic when working with restaurant people. No matter if you are in the restaurant or at the Food Fight office, there is always someone available and willing to help you out.” In the short time Alex has been with Food Fight she has seen four new restaurants opened and another one remodeled. She enjoys that each new restaurant brings in new employees with different perspectives and ideas. Alex has seen the company grow so much and she is excited to see where it goes in the future. “I love the work that I do and the opportunity to grow professionally. I'm the kind of person that would rather be too busy at work than bored, and at Food Fight I'm never bored. With all different restaurant concepts there are a variety of issues and learning opportunities that arise on a daily basis.” Alex recently got married and when she isn’t at work she enjoys spending time with her husband and her dog Lucy.
