Restaurant Manager FOH Cherry Cricket - Cherry Creek

Restaurant Manager FOH

Full Time • Cherry Cricket - Cherry Creek
Cherry Cricket is where friends, families and out-of-towners have been going for burgers and their brew of choice since 1945. We’re a Denver institution because we serve up the best appetizers, sides, entrees and award-winning burgers with a “welcome home, now sit down and enjoy” attitude.

No one really knows where the name Cherry Cricket came from, and we like it that way. In our original location at the modest brick and mortar building on 2nd Ave, we've been slinging burgers, brews and good times since 1945. In April 2018 we opened our second location in the Ballpark neighborhood at 22nd and Blake!

For more than 70 years now, we've continued to fill bellies with the city's favorite burgers paired with Colorado made beers. The memories made at the Cricket are just as important as the amazing food we serve. The Cricket is a place where a delicious burger, a cold beer, and good friends will always be waiting.

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor. The law requires us to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities.

To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had one. People can become disabled, so we need to ask this question at least every five years.

Completing this form is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer is confidential. No one who makes hiring decisions will see it. Your decision to complete the form and your answer will not harm you in any way.
