Four Corners Federales (Denver) - Executive Chef in Denver, Colorado
Four Corners is a leading, Chicago-based hospitality group that owns and operates unique establishments, each thoughtfully created to offer an exceptional social experience, creative menus, and superior service. We started with a neighborhood bar in 2001 and have since grown to 15 venues across Chicago and are now growing nationally.
We are excited to announce that Federales, our open-air tequila and taco concept, will be bringing their energetic vibe from the Windy City to the Mile High City in Spring 2021. Reminiscent of road-side taco joints, they serve up everyone?s favorite Mexican street food (and fun). Guests can enjoy a variety of wood-fired grilled meats that serve as the centerpiece of the lively, tongue-in-cheek take on a Mexican watering hole. The concept transforms from day-to-night with a fiesta vibe and an authentic drink menu complete with house-made margaritas.
Four Corners is looking to hire a creative, service-oriented, Executive Chef to successfully launch Federales Denver and manage all operations of the kitchen. The Executive Chef attracts and retains staff, maintains a cooperative relationship with team members, and optimizes staff productivity. This person will train and manage kitchen personnel and supervise/coordinate all related culinary activities. The Executive Chef will enhance and control food and labor cost, food preparation, menu development, and development of the culinary team. This person will report to the Culinary Director.
