PCC Customer Service Star


Abel Alemayehu

Deli Helper Clerk, Columbia City PCC

Abel began working at the Columbia City PCC as a way to interact with his local community. Right away, he found PCC customers to be kind—and he mirrors that kindness back. Abel is grateful to have also found passionate leaders to help him learn at PCC. In the deli, some of his favorite dishes are the Turkish Garbanzo Salad, Walnut Beet Salad and Buffalo Tofu. Outside of work, he enjoys going roller skating, discovering new music and trying matcha at different cafés. He loves eating Thai food and wants to try Jamaican food next. Abel, thank you for offering genuine service to PCC’s customers, we are grateful to have you on our team!
