Caviar delivers delicious food to diners, with exceptional service and an effortless experience. Our team delivers this experience to companies, to office managers, and hungry people at work. Our main products are catering and group ordering. We are a small team but we have a large impact on Caviars business. Our product drives high-margin orders to restaurants, making Caviar a more attractive partner.
To continue supporting our growth, we are looking for a dynamic Catering Restaurant Account Executive (CRAE) to adeptly use their sales and relationship-building skills to build our catering restaurant supply as quickly as possible nationally. Who are we looking for? Someone who can enthusiastically talk about food and people, articulate why Caviar provides value for restaurants, and be firm but fair on negotiations. A CRAE is a strong independent worker, loves the support of learning from a team, and will challenge themselves to turn a no into a yes.
As a Catering Restaurant Account Executive, you will be responsible for launching new catering restaurants that fit our selective partnership criteria and serve the variety, cuisine, and dietary needs of our corporate clients while maintaining a profitable margin. You'll focus on growth efforts, restaurant location expansion, menu optimization, and more. The name of the game is bringing on restaurants that satisfy our clients variety and dietary needs at fair prices to us (and our restaurant partners!). This inside-sales role is based in San Francisco and will require you to work East Coast hours. The hours will be 7:00am/7:30am-3:00pm/3:30pm.
