Executive Chef
The HOPPY Kitchen
Conroe, Texas 77301-1964
United States
Job Description:

This is a unique opportunity to come help grow and finish the concept for a from scratch kitchen in Conroe, TX. I need a self-starter that understands and takes responsibility very seriously. I am looking for a business minded, culinary genius, that wants to be in the kitchen cooking, creating, doing whatever is needed. I need someone that will enthusiastically complete any job that needs done. I need a kitchen efficacy expert, that knows how to get the maximum from our equipment, our set-up and our staff. This position will be the point person in a small business, and it will require a lot of time in the beginning. However, the reward plan I am offering, makes that commitment, worth the efforts. Our kitchen focuses on fresh, local, and as tasty as we can make it. We do everything we can in-house, and anything we can’t do in-house, we find local vendors who will prepare it fresh for us. As a result, we currently have relationships with a meat market, a seafood market, a baker, and cheese monger. We do not have a freezer in our kitchen, and we make everything from scratch, using only products that are never frozen. We are doing this all from a custom made, converted 40’ international cargo container. The cooking equipment includes two Baker’s Pride 351 pizza ovens stacked that cook at 650°, a 50lb double basket deep fryer, and a 36” oven, that has a 24” flat top, and two burners all running on natural gas. We have a Turbo Air pizza prep table, an 80qt. Hobart mixer, a Hobart HS8-1 heavy duty manual slicer with the removable knife tool, we have two 54” commercial refrigerators, one small mini-frig (for fish), and one beverage refrigerator. The kitchen must have our ovens turned on by 9am for them to be ready to cook pizzas by 11a, as those stones take some time to heat up. We open 11a and close at 8p, closed on Sundays. I need someone that understands all aspects of this business, from POS, to ordering, vendors, recipes, specials, costs, pricing, staffing, hiring, and knows how to produce really good quality food as quickly as possible. If you are interested in being considered, please write me a brief letter to tell me why and include a copy of your resume.
