5 minutos with a Loco - Jose Pacheco

LUCHA LOCO DUXTON HILL

We had 5 minutos to catch up with, Jose Pacheco the newest member to our Loco Familia.
Jose, pronounced as ho-zay recently joined Lucha Loco as our El Capitan! Read more about him to get to know the man behind the mask or come over to 15 Duxton Hill and say Hola!

 

Where are you from?

I'm from the land down under (Australia) My whole family was born in Spain, I'm first generation Australian. 

If you could have a super power what would it be?

I would love a super power that would allow me to win an argument with my wife, Still I don't think a superpower would be enough!

What was your dream job as a child?

I always wanted to be a police officer as a child, Until one day when I was 7 years old I gave an officer a rude finger from the back of my mums car for fun. The officer pulled over my mums car as they found it very funny coming from a small kid. I'm sure they blacklisted my name that day! Just like that my dreams were dashed!

What are you known for?

Being a very happy and jovial madman! Love to have a laugh and enjoy a joke or two with my guests and the team. 

What do you like about the F&B Industry?

After 17 years of being in F&B I hate it!  I'm only in it for the tacos! 

You’re a new addition to the crayon box. What color would you be and why?

I would be the black one to represent my dark sense of humour! "Wahahahahaha, Suppose to be an evil laugh"

What’s your happiest moments working in the F&B industry?

Definitely watching staff grow and improving themselves. Sitting in a restaurant and realising that the person running the restaurant use to be one of your team members which you helped train and shape into the professional person that they are, definitely a great feeling. 

What’s your favourite comfort food?

I love all as you can see from the photos above

What do you do when you are not in the restaurant working?

I like to hit the gym 5-6 hours per day,  Have to keep this body in shape. I think I'm doing a great job with that. 

How would you convince someone to do something they didn’t want to do?

I'd offer them a taco!  Surprisingly enough It always works! 

What is the most unique talent you have?

Playing marbles!  I'm super good! Come challenge me if you dare!

If you turned around and in the doorway was a penguin with a moustache wearing a sombrero and poncho, what would you think the penguin would say?

Hi Dad I've missed you! "There was this one drunk time in Alaska!"
