Ready to roll up your sleeves?

To be a successful Restaurant Manager at Lou’s, you must lead with passion, humility, and a willingness to roll up your sleeves. We rely on you to teach every person working in our store and every customer who walks through our doors what it really means to work at Lou’s.



As a part of our team, you will be committed to not only improving your assigned restaurant but also improving yourself on a personal and professional level. It is vital that you possess excellent communication and interpersonal skills to interact with your team in a positive manner. A leader who sets out to do this will see growth and motivation throughout their entire team.

Our comprehensive Manager training program is 10-12 weeks. During that time, you will learn how to execute our artisan hand-crafted product, you will be immersed in Lou's hospitality, and you will learn the fine art of leading an exceptional Team. This training allows you to not only see how we fulfill every step of our process, but also get a feel for who we are as a company and what we value in our team members.

We were ranked #19 as a Top Large Employer by our employees! The list is compiled of "local companies that workers credited with having dynamic, supportive and inclusive cultures." This is the 13th year in a row that Lou's has made the exclusive list and been among the top large companies in Chicago! Additionally, in 2022 we were ranked as a top workplace in Arizona and Wisconsin by our team.

The opportunities for personal growth are not just encouraged, they are fostered. I am not just a "number" or a "position". I am someone who is genuinely cared about.
