Job Description

Food Safety Quality Assurance Technician

Salad and Go ("S&G") is on a mission to disrupt the fast-food industry by making fresh, nutritious food affordable and available to all. We operate small drive-thru-only locations and serve an intentionally simplified and streamlined menu to enable operational efficiencies that allow the company to offer the lowest possible prices to guests-most notably $5.74 for salads and wraps with grilled chicken or organic tofu. We cater to all dayparts with $1 organic cold brew and five different breakfast burritos, made with real eggs, an all-natural tortilla and served with house-made salsa for $2.99. S&G has been lowering prices every year while raising team member wages ($15/hour in Arizona), which is unheard of in the restaurant industry. S&G was founded in 2013 and currently operates 43 restaurants located in Phoenix, Arizona and Dallas, TX with 50 additional stores opening in the next 12 months, including several new markets.

We are equipped to be the category leader in the healthy QSR vertical through our leading product (value and convenience), operations (small footprint and speed), and financials (industry-leading AUVs and ROIs on new units). We are also a "for good" company. This philosophy has informed our strategy of lowering prices for the consumer to increase accessibility, raising team member wages, and, most importantly, giving back to the community in a big way. Since April 2020, S&G has donated roughly 4,000 salads per week to non-profit organizations that fight hunger and homelessness. In the last 12 months, S&G has donated over 200,000 salads, and will donate even more in 2022 as we expand into new markets.
