Sam Nazarian, founder and CEO of sbe, announced that recruitment has begun for 1,000 newly created positions across the country for sbe’s C3 (Creating Culinary Communities) subsidiary. As part of the opening of food halls and 138 ghost kitchens before the end of the year, C3 is hiring across the entire organization, including digital marketing, accounting, finance, development, construction, operations, and other functions in New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Miami, and San Francisco, with 50 percent of the positions in the greater Los Angeles area.
These roles are part of a larger strategic plan for C3 that includes hiring up to 3,000 employees by the end of 2021 to meet the surging demand for food delivery services and provide employment support to the many communities in which it operates. Sbe’s active recruitment will continue for six months, and the company plans to quickly scale its ghost kitchens to create double-digit, full-time head counts per brand in each ghost kitchen as soon as possible.
While sbe has maintained full employment for the majority of its corporate workforce, the company will be giving priority to employees that have been furloughed from other sbe restaurants and nightlife brands but actively encourages all interested individuals to apply, as sbe hopes to have furloughed employees returning to their original jobs in short order. In recent months, the company has hosted hiring fairs across multiple markets and will continue to do so on a twice-monthly basis until all vacancies have been filled.
