Job Description for District Operations Manager, Fast Foods

A kitchen manager is a back-of-house supervisor at a restaurant. Restaurants that offer a more casual fare and atmosphere are typical employers for kitchen managers (versus fine dining restaurants, which generally hire chefs). Kitchen managers are in charge of executing pre-existing recipes and preparations, as well as overseeing schedules, cleaning, and maintenance in accordance with the guidance of the restaurant’s owner or general manager. This is typically a salaried position; however, in smaller, independent operations, the kitchen manager may be an elevated hourly employee.
