At The Canteen, we work hard and we have a great time doing it. We believe that growing a small business in a place like Provincetown is first and foremost about building community through respect, trust and big-heartedness. The people who work with us are more than just co-workers; they are the heart and soul of our organization. 

Our company is always growing and evolving, and we need talented and energetic people to work and grow with us. We are looking to hire hard-working folks who have a passion for great food and service; who consider being treated and treating others with respect as an essential part of their day; who value organization and attention to detail; and who understand the importance of community building -- between co-workers, guests, suppliers, and everyone else who walks through our doors.

In six years, our company has expanded from one location and seven employees to three locations and about seventy employees. We’re proud of what we’ve created, but we are always looking for ways to do our jobs more effectively, to improve, to evolve. It's in our DNA.

If this sounds like someplace where you’d fit in, we’d love to hear from you. If you are interested in any of these positions, please email a cover letter and resume to thecanteenptown@gmail.com.
