Sous Chef at Mama Ricotta’s
FS Food Group is the Carolina’s premier casual dining family of restaurants. From the fresh, convenient YAFO Kitchen locations, to all the smoky old-school barbecue from each Midwood Smokehouse, and from the homey Italian recipes of Mama Ricotta’s to the festive menu of Paco’s Tacos and Tequila the company continues to provide the market with the best of every segment. Fresh real ingredients, an emphasis on teamwork and a commitment to quality have propelled Frank Scibelli and FS Food Group to the success they enjoy today.
We’re looking for people like us who dream about awesome Italian cuisine! Our staff is committed to doing everything the right way which is why we make most items from scratch, including sauces, soups, sausages, mozzarella, bread and desserts. Mama Ricotta’s chooses the finest ingredients including San Marzano tomatoes, Puglia extra virgin olive oil, Latini and De Cecco pastas and Cibo Italian DOP prosciutto among many others.
We’re looking for a Sous Chef to help lead our team of professional, hardworking staff members. An upbeat and ‘can do’ attitude is required! If you have a passion for making awesome food, leading others and working in a definitive home style Italian restaurant, we would like to speak with you!
