Family Meal: Employee Spotlight with Katelyn Andrews

Welcome to Family Meal, our blog series where we shine a spotlight on one of our amazing Roomies. This month, we sat down with Katelyn Andrews, our Content Marketing Manager in the US.

Tell us a little about your role and your team.

Katelyn: My name is Katelyn Andrews and I am the Content Marketing Manager here at SevenRooms. I started working at the company in August 2022. It’s my job and passion to create resources to educate and inspire restaurant operators (e.g. blogs, guides, case studies, newsletters, etc.).

I am part of the Demand Generation Team within the Marketing department. Our department comprises the hardest working, fun, and talented people I’ve ever worked with. It’s refreshing to be around colleagues who have so much passion for what they do and what SevenRooms does for the restaurant industry.

What do you love most about your role at SevenRooms?

Katelyn: What I love most about my role at SevenRooms is I’m able to combine my passions into one job: my love for the restaurant industry, writing, and creating content. It’s the perfect job. Not to mention I get to work with the most amazing, talented and hardworking people that I’ve had the pleasure of working with so far in my career.

Can you share a story when you put one (or more) of our Core Values into action within your role?

Katelyn: Within the Marketing team, we always strive to be creative and test new ideas, a.k.a. Change Up the Menu. A few months ago, I had the idea to change up our monthly client and prospect newsletter. The old newsletter was more of a distribution channel for our latest blog content and lacked a narrative or theme. What I wanted to create was a conversation. I wanted SevenRooms to have a narrative and to make people laugh! So I changed up the menu and created Heard! – our new company newsletter.

What three career lessons have you learned thus far?


  1. Everyone is a teacher.
  2. Don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty. It’s the best way to learn.
  3. Procrastination is the thief of time.

What is a non-work activity or hobby that you do? How did you get into it?

Katelyn: I do love my yoga! During the pandemic, I received my yoga teacher certification to keep myself sane and deepen my practice — though I did teach for a little while! Admittedly, I’ve been slacking lately, but it’s a New Year’s resolution to bring it back into my daily life.

Describe for us your favorite dining experience.

Katelyn: You know, I have to say that some of my most amazing dining experiences are the ones that were least expected. For example, a few years ago, friends and I walked into a pub in Valencia, Spain, and there was a traditional Spanish tortilla displayed on the bar that you could order pieces of. It was something so simple, but it was the most amazing thing we ate that entire trip, and it was completely unexpected!
