Head Chef role to help build an exciting new cafe and bakehouse concept that is rolling out across the Mid-West.
BANKSIA is an exciting new concept that brings an Australian influence to the classic European Cafe and Bakery. We have brought the modern fusion of multi-cultural cuisine from Australia to fill a niche that the Mid-West is crying out for; a sophisticated cafe dining concept that serves amazing breakfast, brunch and lunch with the added convenience of grab-and-go gourmet sandwiches and salads. Our bakery produces artisanal breads, delicious pastries and tarts catering for the casual diner and specifically targeting the corporate and event catering market.
You will be an integral part of the development, management and roll out of this exciting new concept, initially in our down-town location (the old Sasha's Baking Company) and will quickly grow as we roll out new stores in Kansas City and franchises across the mid-west.
As Head Chef you will work as the conduit between ownership and kitchen staff ensuring that the end product adheres to the high quality standards our clientele expect. You will have a flair for sophisticated flavor profiles and the ability to deconstruct classic dishes from around the world and transform them into casual eating options.
You will be a hands on Chef, working in the kitchen alongside your team providing clear direction, strong motivation and consistency of quality. You will also be able to manage the wider day to day operations. In time you will oversee the development of an industrial scale kitchen to supply outlets and franchises and grow your team accordingly.
This is a truly exciting opportunity to come in at the development stage of a new concept and bring your talents to ensure its success.
If this sounds like you and your next career path, apply now.
Due to the number of applications, only successful candidates will be contacted for an interview. No recruitment agencies please.
Compensation: Based on Experience
