Part-time food service positions with competitive pay

Join the culinary staff in Mitchell Hall, Columbus State's new, cutting-edge home for hospitality and culinary arts programs.

Mitchell Hall imagesOpened in August 2019, Mitchell Hall is the new home of Columbus State's School of Hospitality Management and Culinary Arts. The building is named after renowned restaurateur Cameron Mitchell of Cameron Mitchell Restaurants’ (CMR) who generously took the lead on the philanthropic campaign and provided a $2.5 million gift in support of the project.  

Features of the 80,000-square-foot, three-floor facility include:

  •  More than doubling Hospitality and Culinary Arts enrollment capacity to more than 1,500 students.
  • Degrees, a professionally managed, student-staffed 50-seat sit-down restaurant and bar and Blend, a 20-person retail cafe and bakery, both with outdoor seating.
  • A 400-plus seat banquet-capacity conference center with onsite catering and a sweeping balcony overlooking downtown.
  • A two-story culinary theater for lectures and community events.

With the opening of Degrees and Blend, Columbus State is seeking food service professionals to help run both retail spaces, which are both open to the public. It's a great opportunity to work with our students and culinary team to create a great experience for our guests while earning a competitive wage.
