A native Memphian, Melinda Feaker has served in various roles at Huey’s over the years, and is currently an assistant controller at the corporate office.
This mother of two began her Huey’s journey 20 years ago when she stumbled upon a listing for a bookkeeper position at Huey’s Collierville. She initially didn’t give it much thought, but thanks to a twist of fate she went back to the listing, applied, and the rest is history!
Melinda says her favorite part about working at Huey’s is the people, and that “Everybody is just like family.” And she should know. The restaurant has been a large part of her own family, as both of her nieces and have worked at Huey’s and her son Robbie currently serves as the bookkeeper for the Germantown and Southwind locations.
“The best thing about working in the restaurant industry is the variety of people you get to meet and the comradery you can develop in a restaurant setting. Every day brings something different, which helps keep it fun and interesting.”
In her spare time, Melinda enjoys spending time with her great-niece and -nephews and catching up with friends. You may also find her playing with her family’s two rescue pups and doing all manner of DIY projects around her house. She says that there’s always something you can find to do around the house, and jokes that her husband has banned her from Pinterest.
Around the office, Melinda is loved for her easy-going spirit, kind heart and her quick sense of humor, and Huey’s is lucky to have her. Congratulations on 20 wonderful years, Melinda!
