More than just a manager
Your most important roles are coach, cheerleader, and mentor as you inspire your team to learn and grow.
Part of the team
You’ll inspire by example as you work side-by-side with your team and you’ll stay connected with your guests by serving them in person.
Training that makes sense
We’ve invested in developing a world-class training program to ensure you and your team succeed together.
Unique leadership training
We give you one-on-one training to grow your leadership skills. Our emphasis on education means you’ll be constantly learning new concepts to broaden your perspective as a leader.
Let’s go places
Now is the best time to come on board. With our rapid expansion into new markets, your future with us is limitless.
Prior to Café Zupas, David Sparks spent seven years with a full-service restaurant, but don’t let the amount of time fool you; it wasn’t a good experience. He was burnt out, frustrated, and tired from moving all over the country for a company he felt didn’t provide adequate support.
David is back in a restaurant, but the circumstances couldn’t be more different. And those 75 hour weeks? History!
“I love the feeling that comes from corporate. They give us Saturday mornings off to spend with our kids, and now I have Friday night date nights!”
It’s not just that Café Zupas Operating Partners truly live a balanced life, but it’s also the energy that David loves. “We’re never settling. We push the boundaries. The potential you have with Café Zupas is huge. No other place I’d rather be.”
Your influence in our kitchen is critical. You’ll oversee all food preparation, ensure the recipes are executed perfectly, and take care of daily produce orders. Not only do you work the line, and work side-by-side with all team members, you’ll take on the vital role of developing and growing a great kitchen team. If we want to serve great food, then we need you!
As the Hospitality Manager, your ability to mentor and coach your team will ensure that the store is clean, the team is friendly, guests are served fast, and each order is accurate. No sweat, right? Don’t worry – we’ll give you all the tools you need to succeed. The best part of your day will be the people: the team members you work alongside, and the guests you interact with.
Whether you join us with years of restaurant management experience, or you level-up from within, as an Operating Partner, your most important roles will be coach, cheerleader, and mentor. You’ll serve guests alongside your team and inspire through your example. We’ll set you up with top-notch training and give you the tools to build a killer team.
As an Operating Partner (O.P.) at Cafe Zupas, you make the magic happen in your restaurant, and each O.P. who reaches their quarterly goals is rewarded with a trip abroad. Bring along your plus one, and be prepared to learn, experience, and grow. Oh yeah…and eat (you could say we like insanely good food).
It’s a way to say thanks to our leaders for their hard work, and it’s a way to celebrate the big wins. Join your fellow O.P.s and the Corporate Leadership team, and get ready to cross some things off your bucket list
If we had to choose a passion that couldn’t be food, we’d choose education. We are hungry to learn, even long after formal education ends, and that hunger is shared and developed with all employees on a store and corporate level. Be prepared to read often – yes, there will be homework – and if we do our job right, you’ll engage that same love of lifelong learning.
