Katie Parker promoted to Front of the House Manager

The Lobster Trap is excited to announce the promotion of Katie Parker to Front of the House Manager! Katie has been welcoming customers to The Lobster Trap with a warm smile and positive energy for over eight years. Katie brought her passion for fresh fish from Pawley’s Island, SC, where she started in the hospitality business at age 13 bussing tables at the Litchfield Beach Fish House.

The eclectic mountain town of Asheville lured her away from the sea in 2006 but she found the perfect mix of seafood and local flavor when she joined The Lobster Trap family. Asheville has been a great fit for Katie. “I love Asheville because I am never surprised at what I see downtown. I was raised in an area that was ultra conservative and moving to Asheville was an eye-opening experience. I’ve seen anything from a motorcycle with a pig in a cage on a trailer down Patton to a guy in a full-length tie dyed cape walking a goat.”

Hospitality comes naturally to Katie with her great sense of humor, love of life, and outgoing personality. The Lobster Trap is thrilled to have Katie on the management team.
