Careers & Culture

Our Culture

Since the Sandbar first opened its doors in 1979, Chiles Hospitality has been dedicated to the highest standards of quality, steeped in an ‘old Florida’ feel, with a guest-first focus. This methodology has extended into every brand added to our portfolio, including: Mar Vista, Beach House, Gamble Creek Farms, Anna Maria Bake House, and Chiles Hospitality Events.

No matter the branch of our business, employees have access to top experts in their field. Our executive chefs are all graduates of The Culinary Institute of America, and our seasoned managers bring a wealth of industry experience to the organization. Our operational structures are also different, with more opportunities for advancement. Employees are encouraged to explore individual areas of interest like catering, events, and agriculture.

Our Core Values

Instead of cutting costs or corners, we invest in our people and provide them with the means to do their best work. That includes access to products, technology, and education to help create a better future for both the business and environment. We also believe giving employees the flexibility and space to create a strong foundation at home ensures stronger performance during work hours.
