Our Amazing People
The Squeeze is cool by itself, yes, but it's the human energy and passion that takes it to the level of way cool. Here's a little bit about us:
Gary and Misty Young
Gary "The Busboy" and Misty "The Boss," dreamed about owning the Squeeze In "someday" for 15 years before it appeared as an opportunity out of the blue in 2003. They've worked together at the Squeeze since then and love the chance to spend more time with each other and have a weird love affair with the Squeeze.
Chad and Shila Morris
Shila has been at the Squeeze since 2004 with her parents, Gary and Misty Young, and has converted her wonderful husband, Chad Morris to the "dark side" bringing him into the family business in 2006. The Morris' wed on June 30, 2006, and live in Reno. Shila is a graduate of the University of Nevada, Reno and Chad is a certified arborist with many years of landscape and retail management experience. Shila and Chad are co-owners of all Squeeze In locations. Shila is the President of all Squeeze In restaurants.
Kay is the youngest member of the Young clan. She's an avid singer, songwriter, and saxophone player. Kay has been serving Squeeze guests since she was 11, and does a fantastic job. She recently married Daniel Salerno and they are enjoying the married life with their kitties.

Nicole is the General Manager of the Truckee Squeeze In. She's known for running a tight ship, and for her sharp wit and sly smile. She's from the San Diego area and is an avid fan of the Chargers and the Padres. She loves getting outdoors: in the winter, she snowboards and cross country skis, and in the summer, catch her paddle boarding with her dog Mista Man. She has a beautiful baby girl, Harley Jean.

Erin is a graduate of culinary school and has been a professional Chef for years. She has been the General Manager and Assistant Manager of the Truckee Squeeze for almost 5 years, and now heads up the Northwest Reno Squeeze In restaurant.
Heidi Davis is the Manager of the South Reno Squeeze In restaurant. She is the loving mother of Amanda, the Truckee Squeeze's Assistant Manager, and to Alex, who also hosts at the Squeeze (we like the whole family thing!). Photo by Tom Falconer.
Steve is the newest General Manager and he heads up the Sparks Nevada Squeeze In. A Marine and formerly a Reno Police Officer, Steve knows how to serve his community and country! His family includes his lovely wife, Caroline, and son Colin and daughter Maile. Photo by Tom Falconer.
Rigoberto Mora is our Regional Kitchen Manager and has been with the Squeeze In longer than any of us have! When the Youngs bought the original restaurant in Truckee, they couldn't help but ask Rigo stay on with us, as he had already been with cooking in the restaurant for YEARS. Rigo does a fabulous job managing four kitchen teams.
The Boyz Under the Hood
You don't see 'em much, but you love 'em! The Boyz Under the Hood in the kitchen spend hours every day receiving, sorting, washing, chopping, slicing, shredding, cooking, cleaning, ordering... and again... receiving, sorting, washing, chopping, slicing, shredding, cooking, cleaning, ordering... a never ending cycle!
The Boyz Under the Hood have pumped out as many as 390 meals in seven hours from the Truckee Squeeze's tiny 40 square foot kitchen. An amazing feat which can't be accomplished without great teamwork and advance preparation. Great job guys! The Truckee kitchen isn't much bigger than a modern day walk-in closet. Each kitchen we build in a new location is modeled after the Truckee mothership, but the kitchens tend to get bigger each time.
It's totally FREE and available for iPhone, Android and Blackberry! It's got lots of cool stuff, including a specials screen you can show your server for a cool hook up. Download it today!
