  • We strive for great hospitality for our guests and team members and nurture a respectful and collaborative culture in our cafés and at our Support Center.

AU BON PAIN has a dynamic career path in place for team members with all skill sets:

“I first interviewed with Au Bon Pain based on the recommendation of a friend who had recently joined the company. He called me his very first day on the job telling me that I need to make a career change and meet with ABP. He told me that he had never worked with such a great group of people – leaders that really cared about their people. He was right! Their passion to work with the best people and their drive for success is genuine. They spoke of a culture of teamwork and hospitality combined with efficiency and accountability.” 
Joe E. – Area Director

Did you know with great performance, great initiative, and a willingness to learn new things, you can progress to an Associate Manager, and even a General Manager where you’ll operate and lead your own café?  With great leadership and operations skills, you could become an Area Director and be responsible for providing leadership to multiple locations.

“Au Bon Pain is a very fast paced environment with delicious food. Our management is great, they communicates with all the employees, they treat us as real people. The standards are high and we work hard but I love that. We like to make our guests feel like they are home. It makes it exciting to see and talk to all these different people. I look forward to continue to grow at Au Bon Pain.”
