Looking for a part time job? Costa Vida opening on Archer is looking for help!

Any students looking for a part-time job in the Gainesville area, please see the following opportunity.

Costa Vida Now Hiring
3581 S.W. Archer Road
Gainesville, Fl. 32608
Monday- Friday 10am – 4pm

Costa Vida was born on the beautiful beaches of coastal Mexico, inspired by the lifestyle that pushes you to catch the wave – rather than stand on the sidelines to let life pass you by. This coastal lifestyle encourages passionately pursuing what makes you happy and gaining satisfaction from doing things the right way. We believe fresh food created with passion, from scratch using real ingredients, just tastes better! We know the difference and our customers can taste the difference.

Following a trip to Cabo San Lucas, Costa Vida founders JD and Sarah Gardner were inspired with a vision. While the surf lapped at their feet and they enjoyed the delicious freshly made local cuisine, they brainstormed how they could bring this vibrant lifestyle and incredible cuisine home with them. The result was the first Costa Vida location in Layton, Utah.

Being true to the cuisine of coastal Mexico, Costa Vida food is made fresh in each restaurant’s kitchen. Each tortilla is hand crafted daily and served hot, ensuring that no customer will ever have to eat a factory-made tortilla pulled from a bag. The sweet pork and shredded beef are perfectly seasoned and slow-cooked for several hours to create the signature intense aroma and flavors of Costa Vida. Led by our Certified Executive Chef, Costa Vida uses only the highest-quality, all-natural ingredients to create flavorful, award-winning meals that leave guests energized, inspired, and looking forward to their next visit.

Since the first restaurant opened in 2003, people have embraced the Costa Vida Lifestyle. Today, Costa Vida is one of the fastest growing restaurant franchises in North America with locations across the United States and Canada

We are currently hiring Team Members for all positions.
Full & Part Time; Ideal shifts for students
Team Members are hired and trained with an opportunity to develop a career with Costa Vida.
