    Operating 201 restaurants with an eclectic menu, large portions, and signature cheesecakes, the company currently has a targeted recruiting program to find kitchen jobs for military veterans. Since the company has a long history of promoting from within, many of these folks may find themselves in top roles: 100% of their general managers, executive kitchen managers and area field leaders were hired internally, and started in either hourly jobs or as first-level managers. As part of their onboarding process, the company makes sure to ask new employees a key question: “What is your favorite cheesecake flavor?” Prior to their first day, their favorite cheesecake is sent to their home so they can enjoy it with family and friends.
