Spending Locally in Door County also Means Hiring Locally

A recent Craigslist – Chicago job search says, “Chef Wanted for New Seasonal Tapas Restaurant Opening in Wisconsin.”

A Chicago couple plans to open a seasonal Tapas Restaurant here in Door County, but they have started their search for a chef there.

With so many talented local people here in Door County who know the ins and outs of running a business, we believe that any new business owners would benefit in numerous ways if they found a local resident chef to head their operations. And we feel that spending locally in Door County also means hiring locally

“We are looking for an enthusiastic, creative and industrious Chef seeking summer employment for 2011 and hopefully summers beyond. This 50 seat restaurant and bar will serve traditional Spanish small plates as well as some locally inspired fare. Our goal is to be the most unique and happening place in all of Door County,” says their January 7, 2011 listing.

“The ideal candidate would be someone who can lead a lean operation by example. The ideal Chef would also have the drive to set the bar high in an up-and-coming dining scene. He or she would also be someone who values his or her freedom in the off-season to pursue other gigs or travel. We are hoping this could be the beginning of a long a beautiful arrangement.”

They encourage respondents to be spontaneous: “You can skip the stuffy cover letter and let your personality show in the email.”
