Job Details

Note: This position is based at our commissary in Brooklyn.

Company Background

At Proper Food, we make it a cinch to eat well on the run. We craft our fare by hand fresh every morning the only we know how – with whole, local ingredients sliced, chopped and seasoned with care. Nothing phony or factory-made. Just good, proper fare that’s packed and ready to go.

Proper Food launched in San Francisco in 2014 and has rapidly grown to ten locations in downtown San Francisco, with a passionate local following. We launched in NY in October 2018 and already have four retail locations plus a wholesale business. Our mission is to change the way people eat on the go, and we have ambitious growth plans ahead.

We cook all our meals from scratch each morning and deliver them to our stores pre-packed and ready to go. At the end of each day, all unsold meals are donated to local food banks.

 

The Role

The Chef de Cuisine/ Commissary Operations Manager will work hand-in-hand with Proper Food’s Executive Chef to manage our central commissary kitchen in Brooklyn.  You will take complete responsibility for the effective and efficient operation of food preparation and packaging in a commissary kitchen environment.

Maintain compliance with all Proper Food and local/state/federal food handling and sanitation standards, including logs and documentation. Ensure that all systems and processes are consistently followed. Maintain a clean, safe and orderly environment.
  • Administrative and analytical support: Calculate and document food cost and nutrition information. Maintain and organize digital files for recipes, food cost and nutrition information. Support Executive Chef in the end-to-end process for seasonal menu changeovers.
