Position: CMKO (chief Mama's Kitchen officer)
Organization: Mama Earth Organics
Location: Toronto, Ontario
The chief Mama’s Kitchen officer works with and reports directly to the CEO and is fully accountable and responsible for the growth and performance of the rapidly growing Mama’s Kitchen.
We expect Mama’s Kitchen to continue being the fastest growing part of Mama Earth Organics over the next 3-5 years. This side of our business is 12 months old and has grown rapidly over the past year. We’re seeing a number of clear opportunities and categories within our market (to fully distinguish ourselves) that we’d like to take advantage of for our members. There’s an opportunity to enter into a number of new categories and we now need the perfect person to lead, guide and scale this aspect of our business.
You’ll work directly with our head chef and sous chef (we’re lucky to have two true stars within each of these positions). You’ll have two direct reports (head chef and kitchen administration position) and be responsible for the whole department. You’ll also work closely with our marketing, operations and tech teams.
Mama’s Kitchen presently has a kitchen team of 6-7 people each day (presently doubling body count every 6-9 months). You’ll be responsible for long term strategic direction (with the CEO’s and board’s input). You’ll also be fully responsible for the strategic direction, implementation of strategy within Mama’s Kitchen, scaling operations and full P&L.
The ideal candidate will have experience within the food industry (ideally within a commercial kitchen) and will also have experience setting high level strategy and implementing projects (ideally within a high paced start up environment).
About Mama’s Kitchen: Mama’s Kitchen makes healthy organic prepared meals, salads, snacks and baked items from scratch each day. Mama Earth works with local organic farms and our offerings are based around our farms. We’re competing in a similar space as the “meal kit companies”, but are making things for a much pickier (foodie) and conscious customers. Our members are asking us to enter into a number of new categories that we’re excited to explore and enter into.
