NEW CITY, N.Y., June 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Helen Buford is recognized by Continental Who's Who as a Pinnacle Lifetime Member in the fields of food, beverage and entertainment.
Buford's professional title is CEO at Julius' Bar, one of New York City's oldest gay bars in New York City. She has served in this role for the past seven years, and brings over 14 years of industry experience, as well as expertise in customer service, operations, marketing and management, to her role.
"I pride my success on my strong customer service skills," Buford said.
"Julius' is a bar that has a lot of history," the bar's website states. "This structure has been welcoming folks since 1840, first as a grocery store and then, in 1864 as a bar. It was built in 1826 on the corner of Amos Street (West 10th) and Factory Street (Waverly Place). Since then, we've started a variety of traditions at our bar."
"April 2016 marks the 50th anniversary of the landmark 'Sip-In' at Julius' Bar, at which gay activists challenged New York State's prohibitions on gay bars," the website continues.
"More than three years before Stonewall, this pioneering action helped put in motion changes, which led to vast changes in the legal, political and social landscape for LGBT people."
To further her professional development, Buford is a member of the National Association of Professional Women, which named her as a member of the VIP Woman of the Year Circle.
When not working, Buford volunteers her time to the Aids Walk, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, the American Red Cross, Bailey House and GVSHP. She also enjoys travel, particularly to the Caribbean and Greece, and photography.
"My advice to those entering the bar industry is to research the areas you want to specialize in and focus on clientele," Buford said.
