Money: We’re a business, first and foremost. The earning potential in our restaurants is high because we create an atmosphere of success, and we provide the tools and the leadership to help you reach your earning goals. Busy restaurants = busy servers = more $$ in your pocket.
Great Shifts: We are open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and can offer flexible part-time and full-time schedules. Work early mornings, late nights, midday, or a mix of all three. Because we are busy all day, we can offer a better schedule variety while maintaining maximum earning potential.

Drink: Our award-winning bar can quench any thirst. From handcrafted cocktails, local artisanal beers, sustainable wines, and scratch sodas made from fresh squeezed juices and homemade syrups, our bar is truly as important as our kitchen.
Green Restaurants: We operate some of the greenest restaurants in the country. Being farmer-owned, our philosophy is to operate and live sustainably while also better serving the community. Doing more good, and less harm. From our design to our compost program to our sourcing, you can feel good knowing that we make choices that help preserve the earth.
People: Everything Matters. Everything is Personal. If you want to be surrounded by the most energetic, dynamic, educated, inspired, smart, creative, hardworking, curious, kind, and caring folks around, come work with us! We want to work with you.
Benefits: We offer 50% discount on food and drink when you work, and 50% off for you and up to three guests on your days off, so you have access to delicious fare and a great price while others serve you. We also offer a special health benefit to our team members. As part of the FRG team, you can enjoy a discounted membership rate to LA Fitness ($29/mo!). Ask us about the details to learn more.
Food: Our responsibly sourced, scratch-made food leaves our guests wanting to come back again and again. You can be proud of every dish you make as we’re very careful about who we partner with and source our ingredients from. Cooking with us is like attending an in-house culinary school. Learn how to bake breads and pastries, how to make pasta from scratch, how to butcher, how to master a prep kitchen, how to larder, and more!
