Introducing Danielle Seagraves of Sheldon Inn Restaurant & Bar
9000 Grant Line Road, Elk Grove, 916-686-8330, sheldoninn.com
Describe your business.
Sheldon Inn is housed in a historic building that’s over 100 years old. For the past 30 years, it’s been owned and operated as a restaurant; in the last three years, the owners have expanded the property to include an outdoor wedding and event venue and soon-to-be tasting room.
What was the first job you ever had, and what did you learn from the experience?
The first job I ever had was a hosting position at a restaurant in my hometown. I was pretty shy when I was 16, so I really learned how to come out of my shell when I was talking to customers.
How are you involved with both the community and your customer?
Ten percent of each bottle of Adkins Family Vineyards sold benefits the Elk Grove Food Bank.
What’s your biggest job perk?
My favorite part of being a wedding coordinator is getting to be a part of someone’s special day. I love seeing everything come together and the union of two people in love! Oftentimes, you'll see me sniffling during the ceremony—it gets me every time.
And finally, customer service is…?
Customer service is everything!
