Chef Job in Denver, Colorado

Looking for a partner/executive chef that is interested in starting a unique restaurant in the Denver area. The main culinary background desired is Asian with a mixture of American Steakhouse and Mexican fusion dishes. Experience running a kitchen is required and at least a basic understanding of business, finance, and operations is a must. The ideal candidate will be someone that is willing to work beyond 40 hours (once the restaurant becomes fully operational), is comfortable with managing all aspects of the kitchen, and is also able to step out of the kitchen to represent the restaurant at marketing events, business meetings, interviews/hiring, growth opportunities, and deliberations between partners.

The ability to network is highly desirable. Having a genial personality and a genuine passion for what we are attempting to create are the most important qualities. We will be seeking funding from investment banks, private investors, and pitching our idea to many people that are able to provide us with the capital to become a functioning business.

This is a start-up, and equity is the only form of compensation. If you are seeking a salary, this is not a posting for you. How hard you work to create a successful restaurant will determine how much we make together. If you are someone (like me) that works a steady job but dreams about making their own schedule and creating an amazing restaurant experience for our customers, this posting is for you.

If you are interested in starting something new, exciting, and stylish, based right here in Colorado, please send an inquiry letter [email protected] It doesn't need to be formal, but it needs to be you. The letter should outline your restaurant experience, your entrepreneurial goals, your favorite/best-loved dinners that you've cooked, your story and where you come from, and anything else you think may be relevant to us forming a partnership and going into business together.

Resume experience:

5 years restaurant management experience (at least 3 years as an executive/head chef)
Culinary Arts certificate/degree
Some Business and Finance coursework
