Local Operating Partner, Daniel Erde

5 years ago, gusto! Founder Nate Hybl had a vision: to provide people with colorful and flavorful, healthy and fresh food… fast. He saw ingredients that came together to create something unique and beautiful. He saw restaurants that were bright and welcoming. But perhaps most importantly, he saw team members that were always #heard, so they felt like family. He saw a work environment that was fun and filled with laughter, and customers leaving filled with the power of delight. Now, that vision is a reality, and gusto! is becoming one of Atlanta’s fastest-growing companies. So we’re looking for new family members to help us spread the love. Care to come along?

We must warn you: it takes a special kind of person to join the #gustofam. We are looking for passionate people, full of positivity and potential. Humans want to laugh while they work hard together as a team. Individuals that feel a part of something bigger than themselves, and who allow our guests to feel welcomed in our homes. Helpful humans that always lend a helping hand. gusto! team members are full of diversity, thoughtful and are excited to learn and grow with us, as family.
