Front of House Team Member

Chaia is seeking full and part-time team members for our flagship shop in Georgetown. While team members are trained in all areas of the store, we are currently giving priority to applicants who have kitchen/line cook experience. 


Who we are and what we do


Chaia is an unconventional taco shop serving insanely delicious tacos made entirely with vegetables. Yes, vegetables. But not just any vegetables. Only the freshest, local, (and whenever possible organic) vegetables inventively prepared from scratch, and combined with spices, house-made salsas, and other tasty toppings—all tucked inside a handmade, griddled corn tortilla. Yes, we care intensely about sustainability, composting, and the environment, and eating less meat to save the planet. But the thing we care about most is that our tacos taste damn delicious. Because then, all the rest is possible.


What it’s like here and what you will do 

We are a small team with big dreams, and your enthusiasm and dedication will help us realize Chaia’s full potential and prepare you to grow with our company. Our Team Members thoughtfully and creatively craft beautiful food and a warm experience that leaves our guests longing to return. 


You'll work in all areas of the restaurant - from the taco assembly line, to cashiering, food prep, cooking, pressing and grilling handmade tortillas, and maintaining cleanliness and organization of the restaurant, including dishes. No job is too big or too small; we expect everyone to take initiative to help others get better and grow and to work with urgency and a positive outlook. This is a terrific opportunity for promotion within our growing company!
