General Manager 3 - Food

Job category: Food Service

Job ID: 77597


Posted: 17-Dec-2018

Sodexo is seeking a Food General Manager 3 for one of our Corporate Services accounts, AJ Gallagher, in Rolling Meadows, Illinois.  This manager will be responsible for oversight of the full dining program (totaling $1.5M in managed volume) at a corporate headquarters that offers breakfast, lunch and high-end catering to a building population of 1500.


This newer headquarters facility is state-of-the-art and the executives at AJ Gallagher are strong partners to Sodexo who are also looking to expand in the near future.  The General Manager will have total oversight of one location and will provide leadership and development to one Executive Chef and 16 Sodexo-paid, non-union frontline (hourly) employees. 


Catering (which comprises 550K of the total managed volume, about 50K per month) is a key deliverable and expectations are at a high premium for the customers and clients we serve. This location hosts several evening high-end catered events (inclusive of coursed and plated dinners and cocktail service), and flawless execution of events is expected. 


The ideal candidate will need to be focused on food as this is an Artisan account specializing in chef-driven, seasonal and farm-to-table culinary concepts. A strong ability to manage and articulate financials in a proactive fashion is also important.  Being detailed-oriented, well-organized, and having proven communication skills (written and verbal) along with possessing strong planning skills are critical to the success of the position as well. 


While this a Monday through Friday position, flexibility to work evenings is required in order to ensure successful execution of all evening, high-end catered events.


The ideal candidate for this position will: 

  • provide STELLAR customer service (and this manager will have daily contact with multiple clients including corporate executives)
  • have strong financial acumen and can drive financial stability and provide proactive financial solutions to the client
  • multi-task, lead by example and develop employees in this fast-paced environment
  • be extremely innovative, particularly in the areas of culinary offerings
  • Be adept at leading through change
  • work well with others and be flexible
