ZACH SEITZ, GENERAL MANAGER
Zach has been a longtime member of the Accomac family. He started his hospitality career working a flat top grill and cash register at the Morning Star Flea Market in Thomasville PA, at the age of 15. He also began doing some catering events, working in the kitchen, for that company. “I grew to love the direct customer interaction and instant satisfaction that the customer had after good meal and job well done.”
After going to a career fair in High School, he met Robert Poulton with YTI culinary department, and instantly knew his next step would be culinary school. Zach started at YTI just a week after graduating High School at Dallastown High, where he received an Associate’s Degree in Culinary Arts and Restaurant Management. During his time at culinary school, he started serving at The Accomac Inn and completed his externship in Restaurant Management. Shortly after graduating, Zach was asked to manage Restaurant Mazzi at The Inn at Leola Village in Lancaster. They had wanted to create a service style that would achieve a 4 diamond rating from Triple A and Zach was put in charge of organizing this endeavor. “This was a huge benefit in rounding off my fine dining techniques as a 4 diamond award really makes you see the little details and expectations of a top tier establishment.” After a year we achieved this rating and held on to it through his time there.
In 2009, We welcomed Zach back to The Accomac where he worked his way up from Assistant Manager to now operating as the General Manager. In his last 6+ years, Zach has been teaming with Charlene and Doug and our ever growing team to establish ourselves as not only the best restaurant in Central PA, but focusing on using more local product and modernizing an already high standard of service/product.
