Executive Chef 
Job description

Aka: Creator of Awe

The Executive Chef embodies the flow between our great food, people, and the numbers. You’re a leader who’s hungry to develop tomorrow’s culinary talent. Seeing employees master the chop and challenge themselves with a brunoise, is what drives your passion to govern a strong operation. As you use food as an outlet for creativity and education, you’re focused on setting up the restaurant for high volume, while maintaining a very high quality product and experience. Your knack for numbers is rounded out by culinary expertise and a desire to create an awesome restaurant experience that betters the food system.

 Committed to the good food movement, this person is responsible for all aspects of their restaurant: food quality, staffing, P&L, daily specials, compliance, and (super importantly) good vibes. As our family of restaurants grows, we need someone ready to lead their team into the fray and scope out future kitchen prodigies. You will be the hinge between the companies  long-term core values and the daily guest experience. And most importantly, you’ll see how both your strategic and tactical support is integral to a better food future.

You Will
  • Be the leader in your kitchen and restaurant 
  • Cook delicious food every day 
  • Train your staff into our next crop
  • Manage all things food and people, from the quality of the raw ingredients received from our farm partners to the learning and growth of team members
  • Develop local culture and concepts to foster growth on the team
  • Achieve and maintain the "A" letter grade from the Health Department, holding your team accountable and role-modeling cleanliness
  • Motivate and manage all Brigade leaders in your restaurant while interviewing and developing future team members
  • Get down with numbers: troubleshoot and create action plans to move the business forward, manage food financials of the restaurant, oversee schedules
  • Likely be someone with goals to start their own business
  • Go home feeling fulfilled (and full)
  • Learn, grow, and rise in the ranks, with the support of your Operations manager 

You Have
  • 3-5 years’ professional experience as an Executive Chef 
  • Food Safety Certification
  • Passion for real, good food and the leadership skills to make it happen
  • Creativity and logic working in sync: your right brain and left brain are BFFs and you can create new menu items as easily as you breeze through a P&L
  • Great ideas (we like to keep things fresh)
  • Willingness to roll up the old sleeves and pitch in whenever necessary (it’s about the big picture)
  • Demonstrated skills to motivate and develop a team of strong cooks and leaders
  • Ability to perform physical requirements of the position

 Work Perks: 
Aside from the standard job description fare (competitive salary, medical, dental, vision) we also offer:
