Presenting to you our all rounder-chef Prasath . As fast as FLASH in getting the dishes ready , top class entertainer with words of wisdom. A great tutor to the other working lads. Someone who always has a finger on the pulse of current culinary trend. Hardworking champ and NAME THE DISH I’M GETTING IT DONE FOR YOU kinda chef ! He has his share of love for the old melodies which we quite deciphered from his work time hummings. All hearts when it comes to technology and our MR.RESPONSIBLE for a reason !
If 80 degrees East is well kept and managed , we owe it to our one and only Karunakaran. Synonym for the word punctual , Karunakaran can always be seen running from place to place getting things done. His calm and composed nature and his courteous nature makes him customers’ favorite staff ! To keep the cool at the cafe up and running, Karunakaran goes all timely whilst giving in the one-liners and lightening up the mood. An honest believer of lord and karma fearing person. He has his own sets, work ethics that he never fails to abide. We can very well tag him under the MR.PERFECT super-hero role.
Having one of the top kollywood star’s name , Ajith is our star kid who rocks the Cold items section of our cafe. His creativity wanders from trying new flavours in the mocktails to serving them in a fuzzy manner the customer prefers. We have to say , our kid here is a sleepy head who loves coming late to work but then once he’s at work he gives nothing but his best. MR.SILENT is what would go as a perfect nickname for Ajith.
Our junior master Janakiraman, our next wonder kid of the cafe is someone you can ALWAYS, ALWAYS find talking over a phone or if you see him not engaged in a phone conversation , it’s only because he has his earphones on. Music lover with classy tastes in albums. Exploring of food is what he is best at. Firmly believes in the FAMILY BEFORE ALL concept . Given his non-stop jittery talks , MR.CHATTER BOX is what we fondly call him.
Say hello to our Hyper-active staff of 80 DEG , Arun ! Swift as a cheetah completing the tasks assigned . Shows pure dedication at work-place and becomes a tiny bit extra sensitive to work related stuffs. Loves to help people around in the cafe . Second to Dhoni when it comes to keeping calm and composed. Exhibits Monica’s character with respect to keeping his surroundings clean. Never having found him not on time , we gladly tag him as MR.PUNCTUAL !
Meet 80 Degrees’ Chandler Bing ! Sarcasm over-flooding the places he goes to , Jai Bharath is our cafe’s youngest staff. Just when you think age and expirience go hand in hand , our kid here proves the wordings wrong. Best at work , self-learner, and a work addict who doesn’t mind taking up extra baggage on a regular basis. Jai has an OCD when it comes to keeping the culinary place in order. Given his addiction to work , we do have a MR.WORKAHOLIC in our cafe !
If our cafe is Gotham City, he is Batman. Jumping from task to task, fixing up stuff in minutes, helping with all the stock purchases, managing all the electrical equipments, lending a hand in the kitchen on peak days, driving around for delivery and *sighs* the list doesn’t end. Sometimes he even becomes the DJ at the cafe. We drop the mic on him.
When you’re running a cafe, there are days when things get pushed to the last minute. It could be a new ad campaign, new posters for your updated menu or even a sudden branding idea. Karthik is our go-getter. Just about any time of the day, he is up on his toes, running errands and making things work for 80 Degrees East.
