Liz Williams was honored for 30 years of hard work and dedication at David's Catfish House Thursday afternoon.
Williams worked at the Pondarosa Restaurant located at South Main Street and Lindberg Avenue. When the restaurant was changed to David's Catfish House, Williams stuck around and she even made the change from the location at South Main Street and Lindberg Avenue to the current location of David's on South Main Street.
Williams has stayed working under Robert Faircloth for 30 years for many reasons, she said.
"I like my job," Williams said. "I enjoy the people I work with. These are some good people that I work with and I enjoy working for the whole (Faircloth) family. I couldn't have a better boss than Robert Faircloth. He's a good person to work for and I hope to be here until I retire."
Williams said she also likes working for the current managers at David's.
"I enjoy working with my new managers Josh Godwin, Travis Harrison and Katie Presley," Williams said.
Faircloth had nothing but good things to say about Williams.
"We've gotten along really well together," he said. "She's been a good employee, steady and on time."
The Pondarosa Restaurant was opened by Faircloth in 1968. He closed the doors of Pondarosa and opened David's Catfish House on May 9, 1993 in order to have better hours of operation. The menu and hours have changed even since 1993. However, the most significant change for David's was the move from the old location at South Main Street and Lindberg Avenue to the current location on South Main Street. Walgreens Pharmacy bought the old David's and the new David's opened. However, Faircloth and his family have owned and operated some type of restaurant in Atmore for almost 40 years.
