Westside Drive-In: Good burgers, great employer

image Boise’s Westside Drive-In has been a local landmark since 1957– not only for its delicious food but for its classic, art-deco style. On top of its influence as a well-loved restaurant, Westside is also active and involved in the community with nonprofits like OATHS (Organization Assisting the Homeless Student) and us at Create Common Good. That’s right– Westside is one of our CCG Trainee Employers.

One of our graduates, Jenny*, was hired at Westside Drive-In after completing her training about a year ago, and was quickly named Employee of the Month, receiving a raise and a promotion through the incredible work ethic we saw in her on her first day at CCG. Westside has been a huge supporter of Jenny*, giving her the responsibility of training all new employees that come on board after only one year of work there, showing huge progress from starting in CCG’s Training program. We are grateful for Westside Drive-In’s support of Jenny* as well as our other employers who help to use food to change lives within the Treasure Valley. *Jenny’s name has been changed to maintain safety and anonymity.

Visit Westside Drive-In at 1929 W. State St., Boise, ID 83702 or at 1113 E. Parkcenter Blvd, Boise, ID 83706.
