See what our employees are saying about working for the Rio!

“I love working at the Rio because of the people I get to interact with each day. Our team is like family, and we know how to have a good time. I truly love getting to know our customers, especially our regulars. Our restaurant has been a hub for our downtown that is continuing to thrive. We give to our community through donations and much more. I love being part of something larger that makes a difference for others. People are our secret ingredient and I’m proud to be part of the Rio.”
Ambrette Gilkey, Greeley Rio

“I was hired at the Rio on my 21st birthday and little did I know I was also being adopted into a family of the best people I could imagine. It is a family not only made up of co-workers but also people that walk through our doors every day. This family has taught me lessons as well as shared some of the best moments of my life. The faces have come and gone, but the magic that this place holds ensures that the family spirit remains. I am now 26 and this place has shaped me into the person that I am proud to be today.”
Chris Field, Fort Collins Rio

“What I like the most about the Rio is that it feels like my second family, from the staff to the regulars that come in. I have met some of the best people here, and when I got married I had both staff and regulars come to the wedding. I have never worked in a place where I can be myself and it’s OK to do that. I have two little girls, and for both pregnancies, they made sure to make it as easy going as possible and that is something that I will never forget. My Rio family knows who I am and they take their time to know me and my family, and that is something that is not found just anywhere. I love the managers and my fellow coworkers very much. I just wish to stay with the Rio for as long as I can because I don’t think I would be able to find another place like this. This is family and I could not ask for a better one.”
