Opportunities for GROWTH
At Dig Food Group, we're building a better food system for everyone
by sourcing, cooking and serving delicious food everyday. Nine
years in, we've grown to more than 30 fast-casual Dig restaurants,
opened our first full-service restaurant, 232 Bleecker, partnered
with 130 farms including our own Dig Acres, and taught thousands of
people how to cook (really cook) in our kitchens.
To do this, we've built direct and real relationships with farmers.
We don't just name check them on our menus -- we're true partners
in their businesses. We focus on farmers who are independent,
first-timers, women, immigrants, LGBTQ and people of color. These
relationships allow us to get the best ingredients all year round
and change our menu based on what is growing in the fields.
Each restaurant is run by a chef and all our food is cooked on
site. There are no microwaves, can openers or freezers, just an
entire culinary team at every location, cooking vegetables all day.
This requires training a whole generation of chefs and cooks from
the ground up, including many who have never worked in a restaurant
before. Knife skills are life skills.
We're not here to disrupt anything or become a platform. We run our
business on good food and great people. From sourcing to serving,
our mission is to create a better food system for everyone. That
means a world where farmers can make a living growing food, anyone
can learn to cook, and we can all eat well, together.
DIG believes in the power of a shared table to bring people
together as we are committed to building a culturally inclusive
team. Diverse candidates encouraged to apply
