Mike has a really impressive resume. Before coming to Clover, Mike was Chef de Cuisine at O Ya. Some of you may have remembered the New York Times article naming O Ya the best new restaurant in the US. If you’re lucky enough to have eaten there, you know it’s amazing. We’ve eaten Mike’s food, we can tell he cares about it a lot, which means we all have a ton in common.
Mike is going to run our Burlington, MA restaurant. The special part is that Mike’s a native of Burlington and knows the town really well.
A couple of months ago we rolled out a new fast-track-to-manager program. Up until now, 100 percent of our management has been grown organically. We still expect most of our managers will be created from existing team members, but we are also ready to consider hiring really experienced managers. Mike is one of the first to go through the program. He’s training under our most experienced managers at MIT and HSQ. Say hi to him next time you’re by. And if you’re reading this, have 3-5 years restaurant management experience, and think you might have what it takes to run a Clover, apply here.
