Earls Kitchen + Bar

36 years ago, Leroy “Bus” Earl Fuller and his son Stanley Earl Fuller had a simple idea: to create a laid-back burger and beer joint filled with warm, friendly people. The first Earls restaurant opened in Edmonton, Alberta in 1984, and it quickly took off — and Earls has never looked back, opening locations across Canada and all over the US. While much has changed since Bus and Stan opened the first Earls restaurant all those years ago, many things are the same — Earls is still a family-owned business, run by great people who are passionate about serving delicious food and drinks in an inviting environment.

Today, Earls is based in Vancouver, British Columbia and has 67 locations across North America. Earls remains committed to offering guests premium globally-inspired food, with exceptional service in an authentic atmosphere.

The Sous Chef

Our Sous Chefs do meaningful work with big, excited and engaged teams. They’re the anchor for integrity, authenticity and quality, offer coaching and mentorship to up and coming cooks, and hold the standards for quality at heart.

  • Set your team up for success by contributing to kitchen partner scheduling
  • Coach, mentor and elevate the game of up to 20 line cooks, exercise leadership with your team on and off the line; fill a healthy pipeline of leadership-ready line cooks

What you bring to the line:

  • The belief that people are the source of extraordinary experiences
  • Exceptional culinary skills demonstrated by 3 – 5 years experience working in a commercial kitchen (or related experience); previous leadership experience a bonus
  • Ease in communication, the ability to delegate efficiently and revels in giving and receiving feedback

36 years ago, Leroy “Bus” Earl Fuller and his son Stanley Earl Fuller had a simple idea: to create a laid-back burger and beer joint filled with warm, friendly people. The first Earls restaurant opened in Edmonton, Alberta in 1984, and it quickly took off — and Earls has never looked back, opening locations across Canada and all over the US. While much has changed since Bus and Stan opened the first Earls restaurant all those years ago, many things are the same — Earls is still a family-owned business, run by great people who are passionate about serving delicious food and drinks in an inviting environment.

Today, Earls is based in Vancouver, British Columbia and has 67 locations across North America. Earls remains committed to offering guests premium globally-inspired food, with exceptional service in an authentic atmosphere.
