CLOVER IS HIRING FOR A CATERING AND EVENTS MANAGER

Share:

That’s Ali (our awesome catering coordinator). In June, after a year of pushing our catering program to new heights, she’s moving to a different department in Clover, which means we’re hiring for a pretty amazing role. For the right person, this could be one of the most exciting job openings in the Boston area right now. Here’s the application. Deadline to apply is May 15. Spread the word. We’ll choose the best of the best for in-person interviews.

CLOVER IS HIRING FOR A CATERING AND EVENTS MANAGER

Clover is a fast-growing empire of restaurants in Boston, Cambridge, Brookline, Watertown, and Burlington, MA (with our sights set on national presence) — and we’re holding auditions for a key member of our corporate team.

The Catering and Events Manager will be responsible for booking and executing world class catering events with the local, seasonal, ever-changing menu that we’ve become famous for, and also planning events that are open to the public, including coffee tastings, beer launches, kids days, and cooking classes.

JOB DESCRIPTION
-Interface between chefs, clients, and managers to create catering packages for Clover presence at weddings, office parks, and cultural events (last week we catered the Boston Marathon!)
-Manage pickup and delivery orders from the 7 Clover food trucks and 5 restaurants (this week we’re catering a Hackathon at MIT)
-Rent out portions of Clover restaurants for private parties (last week we hosted Yo Yo Ma!)
-Plan and host coffee tastings, beer launches, kids days, and cooking classes
-Join weekly food development meetings with Clover chefs where you’ll learn about our revolutionary sourcing practices and techniques

REQUIREMENTS
-To apply, you must have at least 2 years experience working in a supervisory role in catering sales, management, or events-planning at a fine dining or quick-service food establishment. Culinary school or experience working in a restaurant kitchen is a plus, but not required.

ARE YOU RIGHT FOR US?
-A self-starter, someone who will aggressively go after opportunities
-Someone who will pay meticulous attention to quality of customer experience
-An excellent written and verbal communicator

PAY
-The role is competitively paid, full time, based partially on an hourly wage and partially on commission. You earn based on your skills at booking events so there’s no limit to your salary. To give you an idea of what’s possible, this month our current catering manager will earn an equivalent to a 50k yearly salary.

WHAT IS CLOVER?
-We use fine-dining techniques to celebrate locally sourced food at prices that everyone can enjoy. Since opening in 2008, we’ve garnered accolades from The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Eater National, and the Food Network. Our most important critics are our regular customers who line up to eat with us every day. Read more about our adventures and our catering program at our website.

The Pizza Friday Box gave us an idea: calzones! Ayr has been making these at his house and texting us photos. They’re big and saucy and so good. Basically a stuffed pizza/turnover situation with origins in 17th century Naples.

As you might know, we love feedback. Survey Day is a tradition that harkens back to the first days of the food truck, over 10 years ago. If you got a card in line today at Clover, or if you ordered on the app today, click here to take the survey. Huge thanks for helping us improve.

Thanks all who joined for the first public food dev meeting after Covid. Phil did a great job pulling it all together. If you’re a customer, farmer, vendor (or Clover staff member) reading this, you are invited to Food Dev! These happen Thursday afternoons at the HUB and they’re where all new food ideas are born. Just make sure to sign up – spots are limited.

House-made carrot lox, hearty vegetable stews with bread and pickles, Tunisian breakfast bowls, a pizza party kit, and a dream of snow, all in one box. Our Snowed In Box is back. This was Greg’s idea back in 2020. He thought it would be cool to make a box that was equally whether eaten after snowboarding or cozied up on the couch watching a movie.

We’ve been getting a lot of requests for the ability to gift a friend Clover Meal Boxes. After a lot of late night tech sessions, we have a way to do this! Yay! I’ve been looking and seeing a few of you have started to discover this feature and are starting to gift away. So cool to see.

If you’re a weekly meal box subscriber, you may have noticed way fewer plastic containers in your deliveries recently.When we started the program, we were in the pandemic, new to this whole home delivery thing, and a big concern was making sure that nothing spilled inside the boxes. So we relied on post-consumer recycled containers (aka plastic deli containers) for a lot of the items.

We’ve been getting back into the merch game. First up: squash shirts. I thought it would be fun to celebrate the diversity of the squash world. Although butternut is probably the squash you see most in the grocery store, there are actually over 100 types of squash, all with their own patterns, colors, and textures.

The Bridgewater is back!! This is probably the most requested sandwich on our menu. Michelle who runs our social media says she reliably gets one message per week asking when it will return. In 2015, Paul and Bryan came up with this sandwich as an homage to the jalapeño poppers at The Charlie Horse, a now-closed tavern in their hometown of Bridgewater, MA.

I love the holidays. I love the lights, I love the traditions, I love ornaments and pine needles all over the floor.  I love the movies (“Muppet Christmas Carol”) and the books (“A Child’s Christmas in Wales.”) I love the good songs, I love the schlocky songs (if you’ve never heard “Suzy Snowflake” or “Dominic the Donkey”, stop reading right now and click through.)

It was inevitable. Our meal box program had to find its way into restaurants at some point. A bunch of you have been asking if we can sell “on demand” meal boxes in our restaurants – for those times when you have last-minute dinner guests or forgot to subscribe by the deadline. So we’ve been easing into the process of combining one part of Clover with another.

Brussels Sprouts are extra sweet this time of year, and King Brussels, in his infinite wisdom, has cooked up a Brussels Week in our meal boxes. Every single subscription box will contain a recipe inspired by brussels! This is the first time we’ve explored a seasonal theme across our entire lineup and we’re excited to dive in.

This was Jane’s last week at Clover. We’re wishing her the best in her next steps (but also not so secretly hoping she comes back!)
