Restaurant Coordinator

For an in depth description of jobs at Red Wagon Organic Farm please read our Basic Job Description before applying.

Restaurants sales are an important (and growing) part of our business. The Restaurant Coordinator is the person most responsible for ensuring that produce items are made available to restaurants for ordering and for getting them to restaurants on time and in good condition. The Restaurant Coordinator must have good communication and collaboration skills, as they work closely with Wyatt and Amy, the harvest managers, and the wash station coordinator. They must maintain Red Wagon’s high standard for produce and this requires attention to detail, while working in a stressful and time-sensitive environment.

The Restaurant Coordinator duties include, but are not limited to:

  • Create a restaurant availability list twice a week, with input from Wyatt and the harvest managers.  This should include all the vegetables, herbs, and fruits we could possibly sell to restaurants—it’s important not to miss items for inclusion or include unsuitable items!
  • Communicate with chefs when needed; especially to notify them when a crop is almost available (so they have time to edit their menus), and to get feedback on our produce. Utilize their feedback to pack their orders better and meet their expectations.
  • Work with our online restaurant ordering system to compile orders for each day. This will require some work from home on Sunday, Monday and Thursday evenings.
  • Keep track of any changes to invoices and make these changes in our bookkeeping.
  • Pack restaurant orders on Tuesdays and Fridays throughout the season. Make deliveries to restaurants on Tuesdays and Fridays.
  • (Possibly) call restaurants to try and sell anything we have in abundance.

Required:

  • A valid driver’s license and good driving record
  • Experience driving a truck
  • Working cell phone
