KITCHEN MANAGER (Executive Chef)

Punch Bowl Social is and always will be a place for people to come and be themselves.  We believe in experiential and genuine connection, authenticity in approach, and an inspiring and exciting environment, complete with an abundance of hospitality and guest care.

We’ve stocked our place with a delectable collection of unequalled music, food, games, and beverages. We don’t believe in uncomfortable chairs, bland walls, and fluorescent lights. Those things belong in the 9 to 5 world. We DO believe in a ‘dirty modern’ mash up of chandeliers, food for foodies, PBR tallboys, and craft beverages. We believe in brunch turning into a bowling party and bowling parties turning into all-you-can-sing karaoke. We believe in exploring evenings filled with shuffleboard and made-from-scratch chicken and waffles. 

There is something exceptional about the people that join our team and family, and we believe we have the responsibility and pleasure of working hard, side by side, in support of their personal and professional success. As part of the Punch Bowl Social team, you will be granted access to an exciting career opportunity. You will gain access to what it takes to help fuel a growth company. You will achieve your goals of working in an industry that is ever changing, constantly evolving, and forever exciting. And, you will expand your expertise in running great restaurants.


We are a growth company, not a company that grows. The growth of our teams, neighborhoods and communities drive our commitment to continued restaurant development, and individual opportunity. You will become part of our commitment, and then you will help drive that commitment. We have seen significant growth and development over the past 6 successful year and look forward to continued growth in the upcoming years.  Come and discover for yourself.
