The Kitchen United team loves shaking up the restaurant industry—with a smile. We’re upbeat people who make every interaction with team members, restaurant members and customers a pleasant experience. Our enthusiasm makes it easier to conquer our daily challenges.
We have tremendous respect for the people and the companies we connect to in the restaurant industry. We continually innovate and welcome new ideas, knowing that not all will succeed, but we persevere regardless. We believe constructive feedback keeps us down-to-earth but doesn’t prevent us from achieving the impossible. We’re here to do a big thing and we’re going to do it. Not long from now, we’ll truly be able to say we were a big part of changing the restaurant business in the US and perhaps around the world. Pretty cool.
At Kitchen United, you’ll find energetic, self-starters who embrace working in a fast-paced environment. We seek opportunities to help our team members and are never too busy to lend a hand when someone faces a challenge. We’re organized, yet adaptable. Focused, yet friendly. We’re all on the same team and work best when we work united.
The most important thing we do is help our restaurant partners succeed. To do this, we study, encourage, advise, praise and problem-solve. It’s hard work! When our restaurants succeed we cheer for them and when we’re sure no one is looking we take a deep breath and congratulate ourselves on a job well done. We should, because truthfully, whether a restaurant is large or small, new or old, if they are successful at Kitchen United it’s in part because of what we did. That’s something that should give everyone on the team a deep sense of pride.
Kitchen United values people—including team members, restaurant partners and each customer we serve. We’re invested in your future, which means caring for your health and wellness as well as supporting your career goals. We strive to build a diverse team whose unique backgrounds and experiences make us stronger as a whole to successfully support our business and our customers.
The Kitchen United team believes in relentless innovation and in disrupting the status quo to find better solutions. We think two steps ahead, anticipating challenges and refining our processes for maximum efficiency. We remain adaptable and flexible, quickly shifting to meet the changing needs of our employees, partners, and customers.
From kitchen center team members to corporate leaders, line cooks to account executives, we are all united with a common purpose: to create great experiences for our customers. We work together to empower restaurants to reach a broader market and bring more food choices to more diners in more communities.
We strive to offer a segment-leading benefits package to all employees which include the following components.
To attract the best and brightest, we offer competitive salaries above industry standards, along with unlimited growth opportunities.
We cover 100% of the cost for your health, dental, vision and life insurance and offer low-cost coverage for buy-up plans and additional family members. Plus, you’ll have the option of enrolling in pre-tax flexible spending accounts to address additional costs.
Feeling under the weather? Stay home and recuperate with sick days that accrue as you work with us at Kitchen United. For something more serious, we offer short and long-term disability options.
