You’ve tried every restaurant in town and have reservations for the ones that haven’t opened yet. You spend your weekends (and your paychecks) picking out organic produce at the six farmer’s markets in your city. And there’s nothing you love more than finding the world’s most perfect bacon-infused chocolate (except, well, eating it).
We get it, you’re a foodie. So, why not make your obsession with all things culinary your job? You don’t even have to go back to cooking school—just check out these five food companies that are hiring for all kinds of positions now.
ZeroCater works as a catering concierge service—coordinating meal deliveries from local restaurants, caterers, food trucks, and chefs to hundreds of companies that provide meals to their employees. Basically, “we custom-build menus for clients from our vendors, and we rotate food from some of the best restaurants in the area. It’s really simple for our clients, and everyone’s happy,” says Julian Coleman, ZeroCater’s Lunch Evangelist (yes, that’s a thing).
Not surprisingly, foodie love permeates all aspects of company culture, and ZeroCater makes sure that all of its new hires have a healthy obsession with food.
Tasty Perks: Daily catered lunches, a $500 annual allowance to attend cooking classes, and fun outings like Napa wine tastings.
Sir Kensington’s Gourmet Scooping Ketchup
Sir Kensington’s Gourmet Scooping Ketchup is an artisanal food company changing the condiment world with its line of specialty, all-natural, gourmet ketchups. (Seriously, you must try the Spiced flavor, infused with chipotle peppers, cilantro, lime juice, and coriander.)
Taking over the ketchup world one bottle at a time sounds like a tall order, but the team is up for it. “I really like the challenge that we have going up against the last great monopoly in America,” says Retail Sales & Production Manager Zack Gazzaniga.
Tasty Perk: Obviously, getting to eat a lot of ketchup. But the team also loves its Hump Day Happy Hours. They mix up a batch of people’s favorite cocktails, pack a picnic, and enjoy the great outdoors.
