Sommelier


Description

In the late 1960’s film classic Cool Hand Luke, Paul Newman’s devil-may-care attitude lands him in a Florida jail for cutting off the heads of parking meters. Outnumbered, Newman is dared by his cellmates to eat 50 hard-boiled eggs in an hour. Fueled by his stubborn instincts and unwillingness to conform, Newman trumps his naysayers and defies all odds – proving that he can accomplish anything he sets his mind to.

It’s this ethos on which our company was founded. 50 Eggs is a place where ideas become plans, plans become actions and actions become success and growth. It’s a place where we always find a way to overcome the impossible – a place where we can eat 50 Eggs.

50 Eggs is comprised of highly-driven, passionate professionals who share a wide range of strengths and expertise. The Executive Team is proudly composed of a versatile task force of experts focused on company culture, guest service excellence, food and beverage management, training and development programs, and strong sales practices; a set of ingredients that set us apart from the rest.

Operators, culinarians, service industry professionals and sales & marketing mavens alike join 50 Eggs for a career, not a job. We are a family that is driven by our defined Core Values, and led by our philosophy that “We Can Eat 50 Eggs.” We are committed to providing our team a space to not only do what they love but to expand our knowledge individually and cohesively to grow as a company within the various fields
