Who Are We Looking For?

  • Chef / Kitchen Manager

    The Kitchen Manager/Chef at Hi-Pointe Drive-In is responsible for managing the kitchen of one of St. Louis‚Äôs best fast-casual restaurants and leading a team of Hi achievers who are also a little crazy in all the right ways. This position requires a high level of accountability, a genuine love for people, and the ability to serve A LOT of burgers. Although the Kitchen Manager is responsible for profitability, success is also measured by your ability to develop the team, inspire them to be their best, and create a culture where people want to work. The team comes first, but Hi-Pointe wouldn‚Äôt be the best burger in St. Louis without flawless execution of the food. The Kitchen Manager is expected to execute company recipes and food standards and be able to think outside the box with our ‚Äėdaily creations‚Äô (check our Instagram @hipointedrivein).

    Hi-Pointe was founded with the goal of creating a better, more authentic take on a stagnant food category…and so far, it’s working. We believe that by focusing on the things that matter most, success is inevitable. 

    Here are a few sayings that define what we care most about…

    Honored Hospitality ‚Äď We don‚Äôt take the privilege of service for granted. Every time you set foot in our coop, or just take home some tasty chicken, we‚Äôre thankful. We show it. And that‚Äôs what hospitality smells like.

    People First ‚Äď If you take care of people that take care of people, they will take care of people. We take pride in helping our people achieve their goals for now and into the future.

    Chef-Driven ‚Äď Great good doesn‚Äôt just start in the kitchen. Having the foresight to source the right purveyors and partners, paired with providing culinary leadership is really what you‚Äôre tasting.
