Hot Chicken Takeover is Hiring An Accounting Clerk

ABOUT HCT

A little over 3 years ago, we started selling Nashville-style hot chicken out of a window in Olde Towne East — we did it every weekend for an entire summer and fall. From there, we opened on the second floor of the historic North Market downtown and by the end of the year we’ll have 3 restaurants and a food truck operating out of Central Ohio—and we’re just getting started.

Most people know us because of our great chicken, but the reason why we started selling it was because our founder had the desire to make a social impact by offering supportive employment to those who need it. In other words, if somebody has a criminal record, suffered from homelessness, or grew up in a cycle of instability, we offer them the same consideration for employment as we would anybody else. Our mantra is “Acknowledge the past; judge by the present and future.” We call this approach Fair Chance Employment. We live by our five values; Team, Hustle, Ownership, Growth and Solutions.
