Snooze an AM Eatery seeks to evolve the A.M. dining experience through culinary innovation, an eclectic and energetic atmosphere and comfortable and friendly service. We celebrate each day and invite our guests to do the same. Snooze believes in doing the responsible thing for people and the planet. From composting and recycling about 90% of our waste, focusing on resource conservation and using responsible materials, we're working to help create a better world for future generations. We strive to be good neighbors and give back to the communities that we are so lucky to be part of. At Snooze, we believe in our mantra that it only takes a moment to make a difference.

We can't do any of that, though, without great people!

We invite you to join us - whether in Colorado, California, Arizona or Texas - and work in an environment where your individuality is encouraged, where sustainability is more than just a buzz word, and where FUN is one of our family values. Because we serve guests the most important meal of their day, OUR day starts at 5:30 am - so "morning people" are encouraged to apply. We do, however, have a limitless supply of our delicious Guatemalan coffee to perk you up and keep you going. We are a family and we do our absolute best to provide our great benefits, competitive salaries and wages, and a fun and inviting work environment.

When you submit your resume, please tell us what you'd make for Snooze's pancake of the day.

We can't wait to meet you and we hope to see your smiling face dining at Snooze.

Snooze is, of course, an equal opportunity employer. Proof of identity and legal authority to work in the U.S. is a condition of employment, and will be verified after hire.
