Robin Giedd, general manager of the Red Lobster restaurant in Ashwaubenon, received her second Joe. R. Lee Diamond Club Award, Darden Restaurants' top honor.

Giedd was one of eight managers to receive the award from among 146 peers in the Ashwaubenon restaurant's region.

The award is presented annually to general managers who demonstrate outstanding results based on Red Lobster's core values of respect, integrity, genuine caring, hospitality and teamwork, while also achieving top financial performance in the previous fiscal year.

"We had a good year. I have a great management team," she said. "We have such a core group of customers because we've been here forever."

The restaurant at 1251 Lombardi Access Road opened in 1975. It has about 80 employees.

Giedd joined Red Lobster in 1992 as a server. She was named general manager of the Green Bay Red Lobster in 2008.

Darden Restaurants also owns Olive Garden, Longhorn Steakhouse, Capital Grille, Bahama Breeze and Seasons 52 restaurants, among others.

Dairy Cove open

Dairy Cove, 2630 School Lane, Suamico, opened on July 1 and is off to a good start, according to owner Jacob Klaus.

"It's the ideal time of season. We're getting strawberry-picking people, zoo people," Klaus said. "People are enjoying the outside seating with the nice weather."

The Klaus family also owns the Dairy Cove in Cecil, which they bought about six years ago. The Suamico Dairy Cove is the former Barb & Tom's Country Diner, next door to Blaser's Acres and just before the turn to the NEW Zoo.

Dairy Cove offers soft-serve ice cream and a rotating weekly frozen yogurt flavor, as well as a full menu of hamburgers, cheese curds, hot dogs, fries, onion rings, nachos and the like. It also has malts and shakes, sundaes, slushes and flurries.

Hours are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.

Oak Creek tagging Packers

If you want to promote economic development, you go where the people are. In Wisconsin, you could do worse than advertise on the Green Bay Packers Radio Network. So figures Oak Creek, which according to a Milwaukee Business Journal column, is going to run ads during games this year.

The city is looking to promote redevelopment of a former Delphi manufacturing site, which includes a Meijer store, new city hall, library, apartments and retail area.
