Lula Café, the farm-to-table institution and seriously busy Logan Square hub, is hiring a PM sous chef.
For 22 years we have been a vibrant restaurant, always searching, changing, and looking for new paths forward. Today we continue that search with the hopes of finding a unique individual to join our management team in a role we hope to be equally unique in its leadership capacity.
Our mission at Lula Café is to create joyful food experiences by working with love and compassion. We hold these core values: empathy, creativity, equity, and community.
We’re looking for someone in a leadership capacity to help manage our hourly staff and PM services and help create and grow a kind of restaurant culture we hold as a highest standard. We believe in respecting the hard emotional and physical labor that goes into creating great food by giving our team the resources, training, and guidance they need to excel and by listening and collaborating with them as we go. We believe in strong but compassionate leadership. We aim for healthy work conditions, wage growth, and measurable happiness among the staff. We believe in serious effort, conscious choices, and hard work for good outcomes.
We strongly encourage BIPOC candidates to apply. We are hoping to find someone who will represent the diversity of our staff and who will help that diversity grow and prosper.
