Job Details
Valente's is looking for an experienced Front of House/Sales Specialist who is ready to be a part of our growing business.
Our team is made up of amiable, hard-working, and versatile individuals who are comfortable wearing many hats. We're looking to add someone to our small but growing business who fits that mold. 
We do a lot with very little space. We make most of our products in house, including fresh pasta, cheeses, and breads. We also have a great selection of cheeses and charcuterie and were named one of Philly's 13 Great Cheese Shops by Philadelphia Magazine. Recently, we won Best of the Best Specialty Market from South Jersey Magazine. 
In addition to our fresh products, we offer catering, a family meal service, takeout pasta, specialty sandwiches, and more. Recently, we launched a virtual restaurant out of Valente's called Cilento Sandwich Co. which, as the name suggests, focuses on sandwiches. It is a quickly growing business that will likely be part of a brick-and-mortar establishment in 2020. Even when that does happen, Cilento will continue to operate, in part, out of Valente's. In this position, you will need to be able to speak to both brands and know the menus inside and out.
As part of our growth, we may soon begin offering breakfast and stay open later for dinners. In this position, you will assist in spearheading these initiatives.
