Job Description

Who We Are

WebstaurantStore.com is the leading ecommerce website to meet the purchasing needs of the food service professionals throughout the United States, Canada, and beyond.  Our large volume of restaurant equipment and supplies along with our buying power allows us to offer an unbeatable selection of products and industry low prices.  In addition to these advantages, we also continue to stay true to our Lancaster County (PA) roots and provide good, honest customer service where our staff goes out of their way to make the shopping experience top priority.  WebstaurantStore.com is a company of Clark Associates, originally established in 1971, which has recently been recognized by Central Penn Business Journal as the Fastest Growing Business in the central PA area.  

Due to our rapid growth, we’ve been adding new locations across the United States and are seeking candidates to join our growing team.  We offer competitive salaries and excellent benefits, including a 401K match program, choice of medical plans, paid maternity leave, and gym membership reimbursement just to name a few.  We believe in working hard, but also like to have fun!  

About the Position
