Our Jobs

Got a foodie belly rocker and a life-long ambition to work in a restaurant or Farmer’s Market food stand? We have a job for you! Okay so seriously the belly rocker is optional and will only get you bonus points in the interview but we are always on the look for talented individuals to work in our restaurant and at our mobile food locations. As an employer of college students, we are always taking applications due to changes in school schedules and our team members graduating.

To apply to one of our jobs (in our Davis restaurant or one of our mobile food locations) please click one of the buttons below. There you can learn more about each position we offer. You can also always bring in a resume during the slow times each day (2pm to 4pm) to the restaurant located at 730 3rd Street, Davis, CA. If we don’t get back to you it usually means we just aren’t hiring, so please don’t take it personally. We hire based on qualifications and availability lining up with our needs. However, feel free to check in with us once you have applied. Thank you in advance for your interest in joining our team!
