The Goods from Juanita
Vancouver, BC | Juanita is an all-day, full-service restaurant featuring elevated yet approachable food, craft cocktails, local beer and a stylistically diverse wine list. Located in the beautiful Kitsilano Beach neighbourhood, we will be serving favourites from our sister restaurant (Lift Breakfast Bakery) alongside our own unique, seasonal offerings for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner inspired by our chef and owner Jane Young’s experiences living and working in coastal Spain.
As a bustling community hub, we welcome guests from all walks of life to experience our safe and comfortable space, accompanied by personalised service. We want our guests’ experiences to become memories told as stories told to friends and family.
Jane not only brings with her a wealth of knowledge and experience, but a desire to foster a work culture of creativity and learning that was central to her experiences at El Bulli and Arzak. In making this a prime focus, we hope to help our staff feel fulfilled by providing opportunities for experimentation and collaboration. Our kitchen believes in making everything we can from scratch; from our pastries baked fresh daily, to homemade pasta and charcuterie, right down to our own condiments.
Jane is so excited to bring her vision to Kits, but she needs a talented, passionate team of Hospitality professionals to make it a reality!
We are hiring for the following positions:
