You can not only create great plates, but operate the kitchen in a profitable manner

The ability to supervise and inspire others on the line

Maintain and monitor production and quality levels of all food products.

You are the type of person others want to learn from and want to emulate.

Oversee incoming food product to insure proper quality.

Monitor and maintain all food safety standards including refrigeration and dry storage for proper handling and rotation.

A little in banquet production cooking and put out a product several levels above “banquet chicken”

Respect for those who make it happen by creating a great place to eat for all of Bobby’s crew in addition to the guests.


A track record of successfully leading a culinary team: someone who walks the talk and led a team consistently delivering a quality guest experience

The kind of passion and grit you can't buy or train. You know it when you see it. The ability to find others with the same.

Ability to work any day, any shift including weekends and holidays based on business demands. (You probably learned this paying your dues early in your career doing prep and dishwashing.)

Prima-donna personality types. The more difficult to work with the better. Bobby has a wicked sense of humor and digs those who do too, so an ability to detect sarcasm and irony is helpful and preferred.


Chances are you decided to work in the kitchen because you love food, and the artistry of it all. Plus you get to wear that stylin’ Chef’s hat. But, having a few benefits and perks along the way helps too.

Bobby gives you medical insurance to keep you healthy, dental care to keep you smiling, and vision care. There’s a Health’s Savings Account which Bobby chips in up to a $1000 bucks a year.

Bobby never understood the saying a penny saved is a penny earned and took it literally. Stake out your retirement with a 401k Retirement Plan and a dollar for dollar match. And you don’t wait for the money. That match is yours right from the get go.

Bobby also takes care of you by picking up the cost 100% on your life insurance, Short Term Disability, and Long Term Disability insurance. Want more? Want to get life insurance for the spouse and kids? Bobby’s got that too.

All work and no play is a recipe for burnout. So Bobby wants you out of the kitchen now then. Find a beach, a mountain, or whatever downtime looks like for you. Bobby will pay you to get out, disconnect, and enjoy yourself. Take as much time away as you need.

Bobby wants you to keep your brain healthy too — learning, refining, and growing. So as you find ways to develop your craft Bobby will find ways to help and make it happen for you.

Bobby’s got some fan favorite dishes on the menu But, if you’ve got a creative streak, and let’s face it, that’s one of the reasons you probably love this business, you’ll have room to get creative.

Bobby is one of a kind, just like you and accepting of all. Come be yourself. Here - You do you.

Lastly, Bobby believes in trust but verify. Once you’re offered the job, Bobby will run a background check, and you’ll need to prove eligibility to work in the US through E-verify. Bobby is an equal opportunity employer.
