John Costanzo started in the industry because he felt it was an easy way to make money while attending school. John has turned the restau- rant industry into his passion and his career as General Manager of the Belvedere Inn, Lan- caster, PA.
John’s favorite thing about his career is a tie between creating new cocktail recipes and making connections with his customers every- day. John feels being a good bartender consist of being an expert at mixology, a customer service therapist and enforcing the law. He feels you literally have to be a “jack of all trades”. John’s advice to new bartenders is to be passion- ate about what you do and you’ll be successful at your job. When John isn’t managing at the Belvedere Inn you can find him golfing or spending time with his family and friends.
