- Opportunities for GROWTHABOUT US:At Dig Food Group, we're
building a better food system for everyone by sourcing, cooking and
serving delicious food everyday. Nine years in, we've grown to more
than 30 fast-casual Dig restaurants, opened our first full-service
restaurant, 232 Bleecker, partnered with 130 farms including our
own Dig Acres, and taught thousands of people how to cook (really
cook) in our kitchens. To do this, we've built direct and real
relationships with farmers. We don't just name check them on our
menus -- we're true partners in their businesses. We focus on
farmers who are independent, first-timers, women, immigrants, LGBTQ
and people of color. These relationships allow us to get the best
ingredients all year round and change our menu based on what is
growing in the fields.Each restaurant is run by a chef and all our
food is cooked on site. There are no microwaves, can openers or
freezers, just an entire culinary team at every location, cooking
vegetables all day. This requires training a whole generation of
chefs and cooks from the ground up, including many who have never
worked in a restaurant before. Knife skills are life skills. We're
not here to disrupt anything or become a platform. We run our
business on good food and great people. From sourcing to serving,
our mission is to create a better food system for everyone. That
means a world where farmers can make a living growing food, anyone
can learn to cook, and we can all eat well, together. DIG believes
in the power of a shared table to bring people together as we are
committed to building a culturally inclusive team. Diverse
