Job Description:

Scratchboard Kitchen is seeking Hosts and Hostesses to join our team at the most exciting, and newest, brunch restaurant in Downtown Arlington Heights! This role will support our full-service restaurant in the roles of greeting, seating, managing the restaurant floor and maintaining the dining areas during operating hours. This position offers a rare opportunity for a majority of AM shifts, and would allow for PM employment outside of Scratchboard!


Located in the heart of Downtown, Scratchboard Kitchen is looking to create a tight-knit team of professionals. This team will both communicate our mission of locally and responsibly sourced offerings all made “from-scratch”, as well as provide a welcoming, casual, and upscale environment for our guests.


Positions are extremely limited! If you are interested and think you would like to join our team of passionate culinary and service professionals apply NOW!


Essential Responsibilities:

  • Working closely with all Front of House and Back of House professionals as well as management to provide outstanding customer service to each and every guest from our community.
  • Executing the craft of restaurant hosting to the highest standard.  
  • Food and beverage menu knowledge and retention.
  • Greeting all guests as the ‘face’ of Scratchboard Kitchen.
  • Ensuring that the highest level of quality of product and service offerings is delivered to all guests, including personally interacting with all guests encountered.
  • Maintain clean dining areas at all times.
  • Work with BOH management to ensure that all food prep and storage areas are kept clean and organized.
  • Help to ensure that the restaurant is compliant with all health and safety code requirements at all times.
  • Organized cash handling and personal banking.


Preferred, but not required:

  • Restaurant experience (not exclusive to breakfast/brunch/lunch).
  • Customer service experience.
  • Excellent communication skills.
  • A clean professional appearance. (Don’t worry! We don’t mind tattoos, ect…)
  • A strong understanding of food and beverage trends and ingredients associated with modern restaurants.
  • A proactive outgoing work-personality.
  • Demonstrated positive approach to problem-solving and teamwork.


















Restaurant Concept:

Upscale casual restaurant in downtown Arlington Heights serving simple yet elevated scratch-made breakfast and lunch fare, coffee, fresh pressed juice, and alcoholic beverages.


Our Vision:

The restaurant will aim to serve as a community gathering place for family and friends to comfortably enjoy time together while sharing a carefully crafted and beautifully presented meal. Although the focus will be on the dine-in experience, a coffee bar/counter will also allow for take-out service where patrons can grab coffee, fresh pressed juice, kombucha, and other breakfast items. The space provides a cozy yet refined environment, consisting of warm, earthy tones to create a comfortable and inviting atmosphere. Our goal for the menu is to provide upgraded classic favorites made primarily from organic, locally sourced ingredients.


Our Mission is for our guests to know Scratchboard Kitchen as a haven where they will always be welcomed, where they can find carefully crafted and beautifully presented food & beverage offerings that are both nourishing and indulgent, and where they always experience excellent service that exceeds their expectations.
