WHO YOU ARE: Friendly. Creative. Eagle-eyed. Hungry. You make things happen, and you make ’em count. You’re not afraid to get your hands dirty, but your standards are spotless, because where and how you work reflects who you are and what you believe in. You get the big picture, realizing it’s always rooted in serving up an authentic Texas experience, one plate at a time.

Goode Company’s mission is to deliver the highest quality dining experience while maintaining operational excellence and constantly seeking to grow our customer base. Our Managers are ambassadors for Goode Company Restaurants, both in the location and in the community, where our managers are seen as professionals, and as leaders. As a true Goode Company ambassador, the management staff must share and represent the same integrity, ideals, and philosophies that our business has been built on since 1977.

By being committed to our brand promise of serving up authentic Texas – “one plate at a time,” our Managers have an appreciation for quality of food and what it takes to create this consistently, with each plate we serve. Goode Company values its customers and their loyalty to our brand, therefore it is the Managers mission to continually develop and build relationships with our customers and encourage the staff to do the same. Goode Company is committed to providing an atmosphere that is clean, safe, comfortable, and appeals to the customers senses (sight, smell, sound and taste) in a unique manner, keeping them returning time after time.

Our Managers have the highest state of ownership in their jobs and welcome challenges that they are faced with. It is also the Managers mission to effectively work with location GMs to manage the P&Ls to ensure that they are working towards meeting the location and company strategic objectives, as set forth by Senior Management. By being focused on producing results, our managers strategize, execute resources, and rally the workforce to meet demands. As a leader, it is the Manager’s responsibility to exemplify and inspire their staff to continuously learn, to seek out a better way, and to take charge of their careers.
