We’re Thankful For Our Splash Café Family This Holiday Season!

The holidays are fast approaching! It’s a special time to focus on the things we’re thankful for, like food, friends, and family. From everyone at Splash Café, thank you for supporting our small, Central Coast business. We are so grateful for every member of our Splash Family, including our loyal customers, staff, vendors, and founders, and for being part of this community for over 30 years!

Meet Some of the Splash Café Family

Being part of the Splash Café Family is so amazing it can be hard to put into words. So we decided to ask our team members to share what they love most!

“I love Splash because it’s a very welcoming environment—like a big family. The team is very close, and you always walk away with amazing friendships. Something that makes Splash unique is how customer focused it is. Our No. 1 goal is to always give our customers the best experience possible, and in return we have so many amazing regulars who I have had the honor of getting to know very well over the years.”

Avalon Weber, SLO Service Manager

I’m a Central Coast native and grew up coming to Splash! My favorite thing here is the chowder, duh! My favorite part about working here is the family culture owners Joanne and Ross have created for both the staff and our guests; I have the best employees AND customers ever! And, of course, I love the fact that I get to work so close to the beach!

Kira Castellanos, Pismo Beach General Manager

My favorite part about Splash is controlling the chaos with our amazing Splash Family, both in and out of the kitchen. The sense of camaraderie is unbeatable, and I have current and former employees come up to me all the time and tell me what an amazing culture we have in our kitchen—one that they haven’t seen before or since.

Aaron Whittington, Pismo Beach Kitchen Manager

My favorite part of the job is building relationships with the team that gives our customers their incredible Splash Experience. I think they can feel that we really think of ourselves as a family. The other part is meeting my wife, Heather Hansen, at Splash and keeping the family tradition going. We now have an almost 2-year-old daughter named Harlow, our future chowder queen.

John Hansen, SLO General Manager

Thank You to Our Amazing Vendors and Partners!

Providing the full Splash Experience wouldn’t be possible without our wonderful vendors and partners. We are so appreciative of your hard work and support! These are just a few of the businesses and individuals we rely on.
