High Flying Foods Restaurant Group is a boutique, family-owned and operated company redefining the art of airport dining. Focusing on fresh, quality ingredients, we hand-craft our dishes from scratch and thoughtfully source each ingredient. Our authentic approach is both unique and inspired, as we execute our expansive vision across multiple cities on a local level – partnering with the most celebrated chefs and sourcing from each market’s local farms. Based in San Francisco, we fully embrace our city’s progressive food culture, and we bring the same artisanal values of local, fresh, organic, and quality product to each of our airport restaurants.
Our unique combination of authentic ingredients and professional counter service results in a relaxed, healthy and affordable dining experience. We work with talented restaurant professionals and offer opportunities to learn and grow within the industry. We strive for a balance between internal promotions which drive the company culture and external hires who bring with them a fresh perspective on our concepts. For that reason, we are looking to hire dynamic and talented candidates at all levels or our operations from Food Runners to General Managers.
Desired candidates are customer focused, hands on, passionate about the restaurant industry and looking to make their mark on our organization. Management candidates must possess leadership skills and operational experience required to mentor and develop employees, establish rapport with customers, and effectively run the restaurant including cash handling, managing breaks, and completing daily administrative duties. Experience with inventory and profit and loss statements a plus!
Training Programs are well-rounded and customized based on experience and position. Managers are mentored by the General Manager or Director of their new location. A typical training program is two weeks of training in all restaurant positions followed by two weeks of training managerial tasks and duties. This initial training is followed by a six month development plan managed by the Director of Operations.
Compensation packages are competitive and focus on a healthy work-life balance for all employees. Managers enjoy working 40-45 hours per week as well as monthly or quarterly bonus programs depending on location, 100% company paid medical, dental, vision and life insurance with the option of participating in a health flexible spending account and 401(k) program, paid vacation and sick leave, company paid parking and meal plans, a management referral bonus program as well as continued development and opportunity for growth.
