‘Miss Hattie’s Homework Hour’ for Teen Employees

SARATOGA SPRINGS — A new initiative at Hattie’s Restaurant allows teen staff to come straight to Hattie’s from school, punch in an hour before their shift, work on homework, and be fed. 

Investing in people is at the core of Business for Good’s mission, and Hattie’s Restaurant is doing just that. In an effort to help teenage employees balance having a job and staying on top of their education, “Miss Hattie’s Homework Hour” was born. 

“Hattie Moseley Austin, our matriarch, was an extremely charitable woman,” said Hattie’s Restaurant Executive Chef, Jasper Alexander. “If she saw someone outside hungry, she would bring them in, sit them down, and feed them. If she saw someone who needed a job, she’d bring them in and make sure their time was being used for something constructive. The Homework Hour is yet another way for Hattie’s Restaurant to continue its longtime focus on truly caring for employees.”

Teen staff have the Homework Hour option at the two-year-round Saratoga Springs BEG Owned™ Hattie’s locations: 45 Phila St. and 3057 Rt. 50 in Wilton. When Hattie’s opens another location on Madison Ave. in Albany next spring, the Homework Hour will be offered there too. 

“A lot of our staff ride the bus home from school, only to have to turn right around and get a ride from their parents to work,” added Beth Alexander. “We really rely on this generation of workers, as they are willing and able to work. We want to support them in any way we can. They are the backbone of our restaurant.”
