Are you passionate about cooking with refined local and organic ingredients? Then you might’ve just found your new adventure. 


At Vegitalian we wake up, cook, meet and serve with a leading purpose every day: to firepower the plant-based food revolution. We wish to make people and our planet happier and healthier, by simply doing what we love: serving customers a new experience of vegetarian and plant-based food. To do so, we are passionately  working on growing Vegitalian from a sustainable restaurant, into an accessible, high-quality life-style-food brand.

You work closely with the other department supervisors and location manager to ensure smooth and profitable overall operations. 

In this role, you have the privilege and opportunity to be part of the realizers of our brand. By consistently encouraging and embodying Vegitalian’s values and DNA, you bring our concept to life and contribute to building a strong and unified brand.
