The experience I acquired from working in the Heart of House at Boston Pizza as both a Line Cook and Kitchen Manager have forever changed my life and helped shape me into who I am today. Learning how to cook multiple dishes as quickly as possible, with the highest level of quality while upholding BP standards is challenging; however, the fast paced, exciting, team-oriented environment is also very rewarding. Working in the kitchen at BP’s taught me many valuable life skills including time management, food safety, and respect for all others that I currently still utilize every day. Some of my fondest memories and life-long friendships come from working in the kitchen at Boston Pizza.

- Darcy McNeil, Kitchen Manager

My time as a Kitchen Manager at Boston Pizza taught me the importance of team culture and employee development. To execute a busy dinner service, the Heart of House team needs to have energy, communication, passion, and focus on providing quality meals to every guest that walks through our doors. These are characteristics of any great team. My favorite part of leading a kitchen was working with my team members to grow their skills while developing a team that trusts each other and works effectively to create the best experience for our guests.
