Job Description:


Who We Are:

Matchbox opened its first location in 2003 and quickly became known for wood-fired pizzas, mini burgers, fresh salads and chef-inspired entrées, like pan-seared sea bass and oven-roasted filet mignon. We like to call it elevated American bistro fare, crafted from high quality ingredients with a chef at the helm in every kitchen.

Who's behind matchbox? Glad you asked! We are a restaurant group based in Reston, Virginia, called Thompson Hospitality. We own, operate, and lose constant sleep over several local restaurant brands, including matchbox, Big Buns Damn Good Burgers and The Rub Chicken + Beer. Our business was founded twenty-eight years ago on the belief that a successful hospitality business can be built by empowering our fellow team members to do whatever it takes to make our guests happy. We just happen to make GREAT food and drinks too!Our recipe for success is pretty simple, it all comes down to people and process. We want to be the best place to work, and part of that is training you on our way of doing things so you can be a rock star at your job.
