Full Time, Part Time

$11.00– $13.00 Hourly


This year, we’re opening two new restaurants and are looking for dozens of people ready to hustle hard and join our team. HCT is a unique place to work – so if you’re eager to grow, motivated to be part of a team, and have big plans for yourself, you’ll feel right at home here.


Just under 3 years ago, we started selling Nashville-style hot chicken out of a window in Olde Towne East – we did it every weekend for an entire summer and fall. From there, we opened up on the second floor of the historic North Market downtown and Clintonville and we're opening Easton in the fall.

Aside from great chicken, we’re also a Fair Chance employer – this means we judge our applicants by their future plans, not their past. In other words, if you’ve had a run-in with the courts or have established a record (we call those ‘alternative resumes’) for yourself, we welcome you to apply and promise you the same consideration we would any other candidate.


Our work environment is fun, energetic, and rewarding. We work hard to give our team members significant opportunities to grow, regardless of previous experience or education. Because of that, everybody starts in the same place – on our dish tank. It sounds crazy, but everyone from top to bottom has pulled shifts on our tank.

From there, your career path is up to you. You’ll get promoted as you master positions in the front and back-of-house – everything from the cash register to chicken fryer. From day 1, you’ll have expectations on paper so you’ll know what you’ve got to do to grow and keep increasing your income.

We’re an all-hands-on-deck kind of place, no one's ever too important to do dishes or pick up trash as they walk through the dining room.


We’ve worked with our team to establish benefits supporting both personal and professional success. We know if you don’t have what you need at home, it’ll be difficult to bring your all to work. With that in mind, here are some of the benefits you’ll earn if you make it onto the team

*Competitive wages and tips – most crew members take home $11+ per hour
*Quick promotion opportunities – as fast as you can grow
*Flexible scheduling
*Transportation bonuses
*Shift meals – our chicken is really good, too
*Matched savings – for things like cars, education, and housing
*Cash advances
*Plenty more
