Position Summary

Come help create BoujieMana, a brand-new restaurant located in central San Diego! Sitting amongst apartments and office buildings, we will serve both the public, and provide support to TCWGlobal by preparing meals (basic catering style) 3 times a week for 125+ employees. BoujieMana has it all—a full bar, VIP room, indoor and outdoor seating, and a training/event center with a capacity of 120 people. There is abundant nighttime and weekend parking, and while space is limited during office hours, there is still plenty of street parking. The price point will be on the higher end with the restaurant’s commitment to utilizing quality ingredients and maintaining a curated menu for all three meals of the day.

We are searching for a diligent Host/Hostess to assist and support our entire staff at BoujieMana. The Host/Hostess is part of the Reception Team and manages the flow of guests dining or lounging at BoujieMana. This team is vitally important to our success, as you are the very first welcome and impression of BoujieMana. The hosts will assist management in facilitating the flow of service in the restaurant, while creating an impressionable atmosphere for guests and staff.

Life is tough—we want the team at BoujieMana to give customers a break so they may bask in the joy of a meal, and the gift of friendship. We are looking for an individual who loves what they do and can work well in a team. The owner will be somewhat hands-on but will not be present day-to-day. Instead, the owner is there to support, finance, and encourage the team to create a wonderful experience for our guests.
