Executive Chef in Phoenix, Arizona

I am an investor in Arizona who is looking for a raw vegan executive chef to help open and run a restaurant in Downtown Phoenix. This is a great opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a new business and form the business concepts and operation. The store front is a live/work in the Phoenix Arts district. As the Executive Chef you will help me name the restaurant, design the menu, and be heavily involved in the development of the restaurant.

As far as what I am looking for, most importantly you need to be an excellent chef, have strong leadership skills, highly confident with the ability to manage all aspects of a restaurant, and you must also be a people person. The restaurant space is only 700 square feet, and as the chef your interactions with the staff will be within ear shot of the clientele and must be professional and endearing.

As part of your compensation the upstairs of the restaurant is a 700 square foot apartment which is partially furnished, and is available to you if you would like to live there.

Company Description: The restaurant is in the Phoenix Arts District. The dining room will be an art gallery with a rotating art collection which will change monthly, the decor will be clean and modern. The customers have to walk into the kitchen to use the restroom so the kitchen will be exceptionally clean and well organized and be its own work of art. Even though the concept will be raw vegan people from all walks of life and eating habits will feel comfortable and welcome, and hopefully non-raw vegans will realize that a raw vegan diet is attainable and they will adopt it for themselves. The restaurant will only sit 35 diners so the staff will be small and fairly easy to manage. Operating hours will be Tuesday-Sunday 11 AM to 10 PM.

Salary Range: $35,000.00 a year
Benefits: Lodging
Position: Full Time (Permanent)
