My Mom and Dad also met a H&H in the 40's. John and Nancy Macerata. She made change and gave out the nickels. My dad started as a bus boy and stayed with the compay for 42 years. Was a plumber, safety engineer and then drove Frank Hardart around to where ever he wanted to go. I remember as a kid going to the H&H Christmas parties at the Waldorf Astoria. I can still remember how excited I would get the night before, because I was going to get all dressed up, go to this big hotel, see Santa and get presents. Those were the days. When I was 14, I started working during the summers in the commisary offices. Then at 16, I worked as a hostess at the Paramus, NJ H& H restaurant.

Ha! My parents, Frank Valencia and mother,
Renate Timpe, met there in about 1955 or
so. They were bussers at that time...cleaned
tables and then I think my mom was
promoted to filling up the machines with
food. She can still tell you where all
the automats were -- she worked at
all of them at one time or another.
