FOH Manager
Front Of House Manager

How did your career in the restaurant business start for you? Did it start as a gig to pay for school? A part time job to supplement income from your ‘career’ job? Or did you always know … perhaps you took cooking, wine appreciation or hospitality management classes in school?

Our career in food started with a small family falafel shop that we opened shortly after arrived in Canada in 1996. Our falafel shop did great, but what we noticed way back then was that there really wasn’t any great pita at the grocery stores. So we sold our restaurant and opened our wholesale bakery, Pita Break. Pita Break did great too, actually, it did amazing. We’ve now grown into well recognized brand across North America. (We recently changed our name to our family name, Ozery Bakery.)

One of the things that’s lead to our exceptional business success has been our ability to see what’s missing and fill those gaps. Last year we identified two more gaps that needed filling. The first was a need for an exciting, casual, current place to eat middle eastern food. The second was a need for more contemporary middle eastern grocery products.

This is what led us to open Parallel. With Parallel we are solving both these problems. First and foremost, we are highlighting the warm, camaraderie, liveliness and bold flavours of the middle east. We opened only six months ago and became extremely busy and successful immediately. And the plan is to grow.

Back to you. We’re currently hiring a FOH manager that wants an awesome career with our company. Like our bakery, we will be growing Parallel into an international business. And we will move quickly.

For the right candidate this job has great long term potential and a chance to be a part of something bigger.

The Job

• Build a system-based business that can be replicated (in LA for instance)
• Host service(s) with the flare, warmth and directness of the middle east (if you have a big, warm, personality you might be able to fake it)
• Develop a winning FOH service and bar team
• Be a mensch (great to work with)
• And all the stuff that comes with a restaurant management position

About You

• You are hard-wired for excellence
• You are energized by being around people
• People are energized around you
• You are a straight talker/direct
• You’re energetic
• You’re ambitious
• You’re good at teaching, and like the best teacher, always learning too
• You a doer. You just get things done
• You a direct and warm. You have a big smile.
• The food/restaurant business is your business.

Your Credentials

• You have worked at one place for more than 3 years
• You have 2-3 years of supervisory or management experience in a restaurant
• You hold active Smart Serve, Food Handling, and First Aid Certificates

Parallel

Parallel was designed to be a place that’s alive, new, and innovative. There’s a feeling of material weight and realness that’s hard to come by.

We invite you to come in and stay for as long as you like. Bring your friends for brunch, grab an espresso and halva on the go, or sit and read on the mezzanine. It’s our favourite place to take in the crowd, enjoy our organic rooftop garden, and if you’re lucky, watch the freight train pass by.
