At Chopt, we are a diverse group of food lovers who are obsessed with salad, who innovate in the kitchen, who love to serve, who operate with a sense of urgency, who smile uncontrollably, who think about food all the time, who take pride in being experts of our craft. We care about the future of fast food and its impact on the local community, the local farmers and food systems and the local workers who make up our team, too. That’s you.

Like we travel to new destinations to source ingredients and inspiration for our salads, we want our employees to broaden their horizons, develop new skills, and reach for opportunities. The Chopt Journey Map has several itineraries that progressively take our Choprs to the next level in their career. With each itinerary, Choprs have the opportunity to hone their skills, learn new ones, increase their responsibility and earn more money! The Journey Map is there for every Chopr to take advantage of. We take pride in mentoring, training and preparing our Choprs to reach for their next career milestones.

Our Managing Partners not only continue to achieve our standards for food quality, hospitality, people development and profitability, but they also consistently demonstrate ownership of their restaurant. In exchange, the Managing Partner Program rewards these high performing operators with financial ownership. Managing Partners are given the opportunity to earn a percentage of profits from their restaurant. The end result is that these individuals have a real ownership stake in their stores and monetarily benefit from running highly profitable restaurants. In addition, Managing Partners receive other benefits such as paid sabbaticals and are provided with opportunities to mentor young managers. As in everything we do, Chopt takes pride in breaking traditional molds and doing things better than our competition. With this in mind, we believe that our Managing Partner Program represents a better way to compensate our high performing General Managers.

Meet Senior Managing Partner Ramiro Thlauetl
Ramiro started his career with Chopt in 2001. He has demonstrated success in his knowledge of every element of our operations. He has tackled high volume restaurants and further improved their revenue and profit. Even more impressive, however, is the vast amount of Choprs he helped to develop – to Shift Leader, to AM, and many all the way to GM. Many of our existing managers have worked with Ramiro and learned from him at some point or another and they all recall all of the valuable lessons he passed on to them. He is a dedicated leader and he epitomizes the essence of the Managing Partner Program which was why he was named the first MP when the program was implemented back in 2013.
