Full time Chefs, Cooks, Food Preparation Workers

Job Description

Company Overview

Four Corners is a leading, Chicago-based hospitality group that owns and operates unique establishments, each thoughtfully created to offer an exceptional social experience, creative menus, and superior service. We started with a neighborhood bar in 2001 and have since grown to 12 venues across Chicago and are now growing nationally.

We are excited to announce that Federales, our open-air tequila and taco concept, will be bringing their energetic vibe from the Windy City to the Deep Ellum site in Fall 2021. Reminiscent of road-side taco joints, they serve up everyone's favorite Mexican street food (and fun). Guests can enjoy a variety of wood-fired grilled meats that serve as the centerpiece of the lively, tongue-in-cheek take on a Mexican watering hole. The concept transforms from day-to-night with a fiesta vibe and an authentic drink menu complete with house-made margaritas.
