 In case you're wondering “Ken’s who?”—let us give you a little background

It all started at Ken's Steak House—a family-owned restaurant in Framingham, Massachusetts with a homemade Italian dressing so tasty, customers wanted bottles of it. To satisfy the increasing demand, the very first batch of Ken’s Steak House Salad Dressing was born— directly in the basement of the local restaurant. Today, you can find our tasty products everywhere, from your favorite eating spot to your own kitchen. Ken's Food continues to grow, and there'll be work to be done. That’s why we need you on the team. We hope you will join us in continuing our tradition of flavor obsession.

Employment with Ken’s Foods is contingent upon successful completion of a drug test, background screening, and pre-employment assessment.
