Earls Kitchen + Bar
Some 35 years ago, Leroy “Bus” Earl Fuller and his son Stanley Earl Fuller had a simple idea: create a laid-back burger and beer joint. When the restaurant started there was no question what it would be called, it had to be Earls. The Edmonton Alberta restaurant quickly took off because, well, who says no to burgers and beer? Since then, much has changed. Yet Earls is still a family-owned business filled with people who are genuinely passionate about great food and drinks served in an inviting environment.

Today, Earls is based in Vancouver, British Columbia and has 69 locations across North America ranging from our west-coast hometown to Miami, Florida. With 6,500 employees, Earls remains committed to offering guests high-quality globally inspired food with great service in an authentic atmosphere.

The Sous Chef
Our Sous Chefs do meaningful work with big, excited and engaged teams. They’re the anchor for integrity, authenticity and quality, offer coaching and mentorship to up and coming cooks, and hold the standards for quality at heart. Multi-skilled with inventory and financial know-how, the Sous Chef works under the mentorship of the Head Chef to ensure kitchen operations run smoothly. They’re a cheerleader for their team’s success and never miss a chance to celebrate - especially when it comes to the small stuff.

How we elevate YOUR game:
Joining Earls comes with perks to support you in your personal and professional journey.

Red Seal Certification: achieve your Red Seal accreditation—fully funded for tuition, books, knives...the whole shabang—while working at Earls (something unheard of in the restaurant industry)

Our ultimate goal is that you leave here with tools in your pocket to live a life you’re on fire for; whether you stay with the company for 5 weeks or 5 (or more!) years.

As the Sous Chef, you’ll:
Create seamless flow of food out of the kitchen through planning and directing food preparation
Maintain zero station downtime through attentive awareness of kitchen tools and equipment

About Earls Main Street

Found in the heart of the 'Peg'. A high energy atmosphere in the spacious, open-concept dining room. In the lounge, you're as likely to find sports fans cheering on the Jets or the Blue Bombers as you are a group of dapper young professionals enjoying some conversation and social time. Large party reservations are welcome, as are groups of 25 to 30 in our semi private dining area. Two spacious patios. One is a primo people-watching haven, while the other is a more intimate affair with a gas fireplace and cozy vibe. A great stop while downtown for shopping, nightlife, or theatre.
