We cook the temperature for success!
We believe it’s all about the people. It’s the people that cook the chicken, it’s the people that serve the chicken and it’s the people that eat the chicken. Pedros is all about it’s people. We strive to create a culture that is vibrant and positive. When you eat at Pedros, you will taste the difference, but when you meet our Pedros, you will feel the difference. We like referring to those really specials ones in our team as ‘Don Pedro’. We are attracted to people who are passionate to become a “Don Pedro”. We are all about enjoying the journey and having fun, but we are also pedantic on our team achieving results. At the end of the day, the numbers must show for all the fun we have.
