Job Description

Job Summary

Tacombi is a fast-growing, omni-channel consumer and retail brand that is committed to globally sharing Mexican food and culture through hospitality experiences, CPG products, community outreach and digital content. Over the next couple years, we’ll be significantly expanding our footprint across the U.S., which means we are going to hire a lot of people and each one of them needs to uphold our brand promise, embody our core values and always extend Mexican Hospitality – Tacombi’s unique service culture – to our growing customer and employee bases.

The General Manager position at Tacombi is like an entrepreneur, head coach and hospitality adventurer rolled into one. Your ability to lead a team and inspire them daily is what gets you out of bed in the morning, but figuring out what we could be doing better to serve our employees and customers is what keeps you up at night. You think and act like an owner, because that's what you are. You have really sound business fundamentals, possess a high-level of attention to detail, and are invested in your own (and your team's) success.

Like owning any business, the job is as challenging as it is rewarding. The financial compensation for our General Manager is proportionate to their hard work, business acumen and leadership effectiveness. It is not, however, guaranteed. If you believe in yourself and the Tacombi brand, this could be the job for you to build a lasting and impactful career.
