Assistant Manager Hanford
Assistant Manager Santiago Rodriguez developed a passion for hospitality early on. Growing up in the small town of Lemoore California, Santiago learned the finer points of hospitality at the many family gatherings his Grandmother hosted. Santiago joined the Toshikos family in 2014, starting off as a host. A year later Santiago was moved from front to the kitchen where he was introduced to the fast paced and exciting world of being a chef. His ambition and quick mind combined with a natural charisma saw him advance quickly to becoming the front of house manager, a responsibility he still holds today. When he is not navigating the hectic environment of restaurant management, he spends his time teaching hospitality at West Hills College, in his home town of Lemoore.
