Veggie Galaxy Diner & Bakery (Central Square, Cambridge) is now accepting applications for all positions, both front and back of the house, in anticipation of a late August grand opening.
This is an exciting opportunity to help build a new business as part of a team in a fun, energetic atmosphere.
Veggie Galaxy cuisine focuses on a fresh and modern take on the classic American diner, serving breakfast all day, additional options during lunch and dinner, and offering bold and bright versions of traditional diner fare. Veggie Galaxy is a "from scratch" restaurant, prepping every menu component, from ketchup and mustard to numerous varieties of pickles and slaw. Veggie Galaxy will also be home to a stand-alone bakery producing desserts and baked goods of the highest quality for both dine-in and takeaway customers. Finally, Veggie Galaxy will provide outstanding customer service, building upon the experience of the food to create an overall customer experience that is enjoyable in every way.

FRONT OF THE HOUSE
Servers: first and foremost, we are looking for genuinely warm and friendly people who thoroughly enjoy giving great customer service. Experience in high volume food service is definitely a plus, as we expect Veggie Galaxy to be a high volume environment in which you may be required to juggle three or four plates while heading towards one table, stop at a second table to answer questions, and say hello to a regular while passing by a third, all while maintaining a genuine smile on your face.
Retail Bakery: Genuine warmth and friendliness is a must for the bakery counter position as well. You must love making customers happy, even while looking at a line of customers out the door. If it does not make your mouth hurt to smile all day, and in fact, takes more effort to not smile, this may be the job for you.
