Biographical of the Owner, Margaret Weidner
Margaret came to live in Deer Harbor in July of 2015. Following a career in research science she decided it was time for change of life choices. One of those choices was to live in the quiet environment and fresh air of beautiful Deer Harbor aboard Syrene I. When the opportunity to open a restaurant in Deer Harbor became available she was ready to take a BIG leap of faith, relying on all her past accomplishments to guide her successfully as she learned the business. A first time business owner, she was inexperienced, but her scientific training had taught her to approach the business with specific goals in mind. The mission and main goal of Island Pie is to create a gathering place in Deer Harbor that is welcoming, clean, and relaxing. The most efficient business model for this goal is the “counter service” model where all employees are trained on the job roles required to meet customer demand. This model fosters a team attitude in our employees by demonstrating how each of us contributes to our goals, working together and supporting one another. The result is a team of employees who work together to anticipate the customer’s needs for a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing dining experience.
