Cheddar's – Why Work For Us?


WHERE WE’RE COMING FROM

Simple, honest, natural ingredients. Scratch-made recipes, handcrafted with care and time. This is how our food gets its start. It’s also how we got ours back in 1979.

Our founders, Aubrey Good and Doug Rogers, believed that when a meal is prepared and cooked fresh just for you, it not only tastes better, it makes you feel good. Of course, this takes time. That’s why we start our slow-cooked meats early in the morning. And we’re constantly chopping, whisking, sautéing and stirring, so we’re ready whenever you’re ready to eat. {This explains why we have twice as many cooks as other restaurants.}

We realize not everyone makes the effort to do things our way. But when you gather at the table with family and friends at Cheddar’s, we want you to feel looked after and appreciated in a warm, welcoming atmosphere. And we hope you savor every moment and every bite. It’s what inspires us to start from scratch every day.

At Cheddar’s, we’re always looking for team members who are as real and genuine as our scratch cooking. We value individuals who are passionate about welcoming guests into our home, preparing time-honored recipes for them by hand and serving it all up with great care and warmth. In essence, we take pride in doing everything the right way, so our entire team can feel good about being a part of it.

In return, we strive to foster a dynamic, rewarding atmosphere that provides ample opportunities for recognition, growth and advancement. Our goal is to create a dining experience where our team members feel as appreciated as our guests. After all, Cheddar’s is only as good as the people who work for us. If this all sounds good to you, we invite you to consider joining our team.
