Sage Restaurant Group Head Butcher in Cleveland, Ohio
Sage Restaurant Group (SRG) is actively seeking a Head Butcher to lead the butchery team and program at our comfortably upscale farm-to-fork steakhouse concept: Urban Farmer Cleveland. We source only the freshest local product from independent farmers and ranchers. Our butchery team breaks down all meats to create our own steaks, charcuterie, and other unique items on our menus. We seek independent thinkers with their own entrepreneurial spirit. We’re not asking you to fit the mold; we’re hoping that you break it.
Risk takers and creative spirits with a penchant for numbers are welcome. We are a results-driven company creating places that are more than just heads in beds, so we’re looking for more than just a person behind a desk.
Achieving personal and professional growth is one of our values at Sage Hospitality. We believe it’s not just about the work you do, but it’s about who you are. We give back to the community, look challenges dead in the eye. We manage and lead and we leave our environments better than we found them. Interested?
