About

Culinary Agents is a professional networking and job matching website designed for current and aspiring professionals in the food, beverage, and hospitality industry. Our website enables talent to represent themselves professionally, match to and seek out job opportunities, get inspired by virtual mentorships, and connect with resources to help them fuel their careers.

For businesses, Culinary Agents' technology and services are a cost effective way to source all levels of culinary, pastry, wine & spirits, dining service, and office positions. Unlike other job sites, which are often static, Culinary Agents has an automatic matching process, which tees up opportunities to talent and businesses, along with tools to support applicant matching, messaging, and management. We support all types of food service establishments, including over 65% of all Michelin-star rated U.S. restaurants, upscale-casual establishments, fast-casual concepts, as well as catering businesses, specialty retail stores, and hotels.

We proudly work with some of the best talent, restaurants, businesses, schools and non-profit organizations across the U.S., in 30+ cities nationwide including New York City, Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Miami, Denver, Seattle, New Orleans and more.

Our team has deep hospitality industry experience combined with strong technology and business expertise. We're committed to working with the service industry to support job and talent search needs with the same level of hospitality and attention as they offer their guests day in and day out.

To us, jobs are stepping-stones to meaningful careers and we actively partner with talent, businesses, schools and organizations to make opportunities accessible.
