COOK | OLD STATE SALOON

THE PERFECT APPLICANT

You love cooking and you’re getting pretty darned good at it, too! Sometimes you wake up at night dreaming of your next great recipe. Your food would keep the king content, the queen quenched, and the masses amazed.  The food critics will someday swoon over your praiseworthy pizzas, heroic hamburgers, and bountiful breakfast burritos. It’s time to throw some spice on your career as a full time cook for a creative, fun, and growing kitchen and catering company. Because of the challenges that accompany growth we are looking for a hard worker wanting to shape and direct a kitchen through the next season.
