Brick and Mortar Storefront

581 Hayes St, San Francisco

Pre COVID: The Lunchpad began its journey as a  “pop-up” located at 581 Hayes St, inside of NOIR LOUNGE. Starting at a few days per week, the pop-up quickly moved to M-F every week and then M-Sunday by the end of the first year. At the same time, they expanded their lunch offering to include corporate catering.

For the past 8 years, local Hayes Valley residents, neighbors, tourists and a long list of corporate clients have been enjoying the unique, artisan sandwiches that The Lunchpad has prided themselves on. The store-front at Noir, is set up for a quick service dining experience; order at the front counter and grab a seat anywhere throughout the Lounge. Noir’s tasteful and swanky wine bar offers guests a unique, and very San Francisco, lunch dining experience and vibe. Serving a short list of breakfast items, foot traffic starts to trickle in around 9:30 AM, increasing heavily through lunch hours between 10:30 AM through 1:30 PM on most days (pre-covid).

Post COVID: Lunchpad is back to operating 7 days a week and is sticking to the “quick-serve” concept, offering mostly to-go orders for breakfast and lunch. However, with NOIR’s recent addition of a parklet, Lunchgoers now have the option of eating on available and swanky booths, as well as utilizing some of the indoor space as the COVID restrictions ease. We’ll be set up with a host of delivery services for to-go orders as well as corporate catering.

NEW: We're in the process of adding a quality coffee option, baked goods, and other grab and go breakfast items for the early morning hours; deemed Lunchpad Cafe’. With the addition of our AGM, we'll be looking to support or GM Wed-Sunday, owning the weekend shift. Once your up and running and fully trained, we would like to explore adding in a more formal brunch for the weekends as this neighborhood is prime for the taking.

As the manager, you will be responsible for daily opening and closing duties, daily prep and operations, lunch and catering order execution, as well as managing a small part-time staff. You will be expected to know all facets of the business and be able to jump into any role as needed. This is not a back-seat role where you will simply delegate. This is a get your hands messy role, while also maintaining the duties of a manager. Your job is to grow and maintain the business, Wed- Sunday.

  • Assisting with Daily and weekly purchasing; (food, paper products/kitchen supplies...)
