Job Description

Position: Chacoista

Hours: 8 - 18 to start, with shifts available for pickup

Shift Needs: Nights/Weekends, Saturdays a must!


A Chacoista Is our name for the person you see multitasking and buzzing around the café: assisting people at the register, handling cash, making beverages, preparing food, cleaning the space, and managing the overall flow of the front of house. They wear many hats all in the name of making the customer experience as perfect as possible. A Chacoista must maintain a solid knowledge of our offerings, and learn much about raw food, gluten-free, vegan, and organic dietary needs and values, and be able to be great with customers that have seemingly “high maintenance” diets. We want to make dining out possible for these folks, so you gotta be behind this to succeed here. The job is ever-changing, with new specials and techniques for making tasty foods, new ways of doing things more eco-friendly, etc., so if you prefer a rigid and static job, Chaco would not be a good fit. This being said, the job is fun, you are treated as a unique and beautiful snowflake, and you get to feel good about working at a business that truly values people and the planet along with the bottom line. Join us!

Our goal at Chaco Canyon is to continually seek to set the standard on what it means to be a Sustainable Cafe. We make all business decisions with the goal of having people, the planet and profitability in balance. We never compromise on our mission, and our ultimate goal of having zero impact on the planet. We wear our hearts on our sleeves and demonstrate this in the way we welcome and take care of customers and employees, donate to local and national causes that share our values, source our ingredients, and prepare every dish. We give people (and ourselves) goosebumps with what we show is possible with a cafe, and what a difference one place can make for the world and our community. We currently have 3 locations, with interest in growing to 4 with an East Side location in the future. The bigger we grow, the more we want to adhere to our values, which are:
 Having equal respect for our planet, our community, and our employees, and continually refining our business practices to reflect this respect
 Creating a welcoming space for and bringing unique products and services to a diverse community
 Providing a safe space for people to be human, with the intention of growth and contribution
Chaco Canyon Organic Cafe is an Equal Employment Opportunity Employer. Thank you for your interest!
