Prep Cook

Company: Hotel Covington
Location: Covington
Posted on: September 9, 2019

Job Description:

We are looking for intuitive and passionate prep cook to work in Coppins Restaurant and Bar located in Hotel Covington. Hotel Covington embodies the transformation of a celebrated, century-old downtown building into a modern luxury hotel. As the first of its genre in the market, Hotel Covington will appeal to business and leisure travelers accustomed to upscale hotels in primary markets seeking an authentic and locally influenced experience. The hotel draws inspiration from the local culture and cultivates a following through a sense of civic pride and exciting food & beverage. Hotel Covington will pull inspiration from its northern and southern sisters, but a cohesive mix of styles will ultimately lend individuality. A story will be told through regional and local sourcing, and will become the pulse of Covington and beyond: unique yet comfortable, casual yet refined, and timeless yet evolving. By reimagining the historically designated Coppin building, which served as home to City Hall and state offices, into a 114-room hotel, this significant project is certain to become the springboard for development in Covington's downtown business district and will deliver urban renewal South of the riverfront developments. Managed by Aparium Hotel Group, the hotel experience will be driven by the brand pillars of translocal hospitality, collaboration and intuitive service. The powerful culmination of these elements creates a truly unique environment. Aparium's service culture is rooted in the belief that art and science are necessary to curate the guest experience. The art of the experience comes together through the power of people, place and character. The science is embedded throughout our standards and training resources. This creates a powerful service experience that enhances every guest interaction. Ready to find out more? Job Description:
