Our mission is:
- Guests: we give guests access to high-quality food and treat them like they're in our home
- Brands: we help local food entrepreneurs expand through delivery and takeout
- Employees: we provide a fun and respectful place to work

What consumers want has changed dramatically in the last few years - they want delivery and takeout! Restaurants have been built for dine-in leaving them unprepared for massive delivery and takeout growth. We exist to give customers what they want and help local food entrepreneurs meet the customers’ needs. Give the people what they want!

Our solution is to create a single kitchen with many brands focused exclusively on delivery and takeout. We use technology to maintain high-quality food and to make every kitchen employees’ job more enjoyable.

Our goal as an employer is to create a respectful work environment with TONS of room for growth. We want to promote employees into Chefs, GMs and corporate employees. We will do this in months rather than years - we move fast! Our founders, Jon, Jordan and Andrew started with a vision to bring high quality food to customers with high quality employees. From day 1 they have been committed to offering employees livable wages, room for growth and a focus on personal development outside of work. Whether your path is to rise through Local Kitchens or somewhere else, we make it our focus to help you reach personal and professional goals.

We are looking for hard working people who want to work hard and grow. If you can show up every day, work hard and make customers happy, we will stay committed to you and your goals.

COVID-19 considerations:
We are taking full precautions in relation to COVID-19. Face masks and social distancing is required while working.

This is an opportunity of a lifetime! Local Food Group is being built by some of the best in the world including the first few employees at DoorDash and Momofuku. We are backed by some of the best investors in the world. We have set out to work as hard as humanly possible, to work as a team and to serve local communities with the best selection and the best employment opportunities. If you're someone who is looking for a career defining opportunity, someone who is willing to grind it out day after day, someone who has enthusiasm for guests and partners - we want to hear from you.
