Amazing Opportunity to Grow with Zooba!
We’re a fast-casual Egyptian street food concept, homegrown in Cairo since 2012. If you’re curious about different culinary cultures, serious about great food that’s responsibly sourced and prepared, and into listening to Arab hip-hop while you work, hit us up!
We love Egyptian street food and want you to love it, too. We serve both classic and creative versions of Egyptian street staples and represent for our culture while we do. Led by taameya — Egyptian falafel — our menu is very vegetarian and vegan friendly, but we’re not obnoxious about it. We’d honestly like to cut down on our red meat consumption, but we also really like our hawawshis (picture a smashed burger except the bun is replaced with our homemade Egyptian baladi bread and the patty is 45% veg). The rest of our menu features a lot of fun dipping sauces and a couple of sides.
The character traits we’re looking for:
• Loves making (and eating) Egyptian street food (we’ll give you time to get hooked)
• Curious about the Egyptian food and culture; loves to learn new things
• Enthusiastic by nature; almost always smiling
• Steps in whenever needed to help co-workers and our guests
• Picks up the pace when things get hectic
• Obsesses over the details; really enjoys SOP and recipe execution
