Vancouver, BC | Edible Canada is on the hunt for a new General Manager for our busy Granville Island operation!

We are thrilled that our long time and incredibly talented GM is following every hospitality professional’s dream and is opening is his own place (and we are so happy for him), but this also means we have big shoes to fill with his current role at Edible Canada.

This is a very exciting and dynamic role, overseeing our operations on Granville Island. This role most definitely requires someone who has high-volume operational experience, someone who is very analytical, organized, works well under pressure and can run an efficient business. Experience managing labour, beverage and overseeing food costs is a must.

Alongside being operationally sound, our new GM will also need to be a strong hands-on leader and, of course, have incredible guest relations skills!

Our goal is to continue to strengthen our brand and our food program, and as our business is multifaceted (bistro, retail, events), there will be ample opportunity for cross-promotion. It is imperative that the new GM is a team player with a big picture approach.

We are looking for someone to start as soon as possible in hopes that we can arrange cross-over between our current all-star GM and the new candidate. Our current GM will be in the role until the end of May.

This is a salaried, full-time position and pay is based on experience. Additionally, the successful candidate will be offered extended health benefits and a competitive bonus structure. Interested parties can contact meghan [at] ediblecanada.com with a resume and a cover letter. We’d love to hear why you think you are the one for the job!

About Edible Canada

edible

Edible Canada — Sightseeing for your taste buds.

Edible Canada (formerly Edible British Columbia) is a six year-old business headquartered at Granville Island Public Market, in Vancouver, British Columbia. We are Canada’s largest culinary tourism and locavore retail company, dedicated to sourcing the highest quality culinary products from coast to coast for our customers.

Services include our retail & online artisan food store, chef guided Granville Island Market Tours, demonstration guest chef Market Dinners, Gourmet Kayaking Weekends, and whatever else we dream up. In the summer of 2011 we opened Edible Canada at the Market — a vibrant bistro in the heart of Granville Island and at the forefront of Canadian cuisine.

About Eric Pateman, President & Founder

Eric-@-Market-DinnerEdible British Columbia was created by Eric Pateman in the spring of 2005. Eric is a Vancouver native with a lifelong passion for food and wine. He has worked in the hospitality industry for over 15 years both as a chef and hotel consultant and has rated restaurants for the Mobil Travel Guide. Eric’s own culinary travels have taken him throughout North America, to the UK and to Africa where he has sought out unique food experiences. Edible British Columbia is the product of Eric’s fervor for great food and wine, his extensive knowledge of the hospitality industry and an enthusiasm for exceeding expectations when it comes to customer service. Eric is a past board member of the BC Culinary Tourism Society and the Vancouver Coast & Mountains Tourism Region. Eric is also a member of the Chef’s Table Society, Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver and supports many local charities including the Vancouver Food Bank and Les Dames D’Escoffier. Eric was named as one of Business in Vancouver’s Top 40 Under 40 Business People in 2007, and to Western Living Magazine’s list of the Top 40 Foodies Under 40 in Western Canada in 2008.

Customer Feedback

“The tour and lunch were hugely successful. Feedback from the group – some of whom have been attending this conference for over 10 years – was that it was one of the best events ever. Thank you very much for your assistance in making the Saturday morning activity such a hit. I would not hesitate to recommend these tours and in fact will soon organize one with local friends – we also should be able to enjoy these special parts of Vancouver. Thanks again for your attention to detail.”
Private Granville Island Market Tour

“We were fortunate to have Edible British Columbia plan our honeymoon. Our 8-day trip was the best vacation of our lives. Eric worked with us to customize a honeymoon that offered relaxation, luxury, and culinary greatness. Every last detail was taken care of — hotel, car and ferry reservations (including the honeymoon suite at a Sooke B&B and a beautiful room at the Pan Pacific), dinner reservations at prime times and prime tables, picnics and hiking suggestions, and guided tours. Highlights included an extraordinary meal at West’s chef’s table, a romantic meal at sunset at the Pointe, and a dim sum tour of Richmond with Stephanie Yuen. It was terrific to have someone take such careful note of our desires and dislikes (our menus regularly featured favourite foods such as oysters and crab, and addressed food allergies), stay within our budget, and yet balance that with freedom and down time. Most importantly, after planning our entire wedding, we were able to sit back, eat, drink and most of all ENJOY, the beauty and of British Columbia. We’d return tomorrow if we could!”
Culinary Tourist

“The meal at West was awesome, the scallops and steak were just perfect and the wine was nice paired with each course. My wife was impressed that I had a consultant help with the planning of our anniversary meal.”
Culinary Tourist

“My wife and I are life-long products of the Eat Van melting pot, so we are no strangers to Asian food, but Tony succeeded in broadening our culinary horizons. Had we waded into the market’s food stalls without him, we would have stuck to the safe choices and not had the fun learning experience we had.”
Market Tour

“The event overall was an absolutely fantastic experience! Chef’s willingness to share knowledge and enthusiasm for food makes this event. To be totally honest, I would be willing to pay more for this experience – I think it is worth at least double when you consider the price of other cooking classes or comparable experiences. Best of luck to you all and I will definitely be in touch for future events!”
Behind the Scenes – Private Cooking Class

“Chef was amazing, personable, laid-back and knowledgeable! We had a fantastic time, great food and wine, wonderful people. We will definitely recommend this to our friends and family. Thank you, Vancouver needs more culinary experiences like this!!”
Behind the Scenes – Private Cooking Class

“An excellent evening with every single thing meeting or exceeding expectations.”
Private Market Dinner

“What a superb evening — I only wish I lived closer as I would attend several each year. Thanks to Eric and his fantastic and entertaining staff – it was a very enjoyable evening!”
BC’s Best Market Dinner

“The guides performed magic with the preparation and presentation of each meal. If I were not there watching that they were actually preparing and cooking the food from scratch on the “Coleman stove”, I would have thought that they had used packed prepared food. The quality of the food and it marvelous taste had all of us longing for more… yummers. Both guides were very approachable, friendly, knowledgeable and very professional – they made the trip very, very enjoyable… an awesome experience indeed.”
Gourmet Kayaking Weekend

“I loved this tour! The stops we made at the different venues were informative and very yummy. I only wished I could bring the whole market home with me. After the tour my daughter and I went back to places we had stopped at, picked up items for our lunch which we ate out on the deck. Then I bought what I could bring back with me on an airplane. I would even take this tour again! I would hope that every visitor and person living in the area would take this tour! Thanks!”
