Position: Manhattan Store Manager
Reports to: VP of Operations
GTG (goodtogoorganics.com) is a young, fast growing company. We started in August 2010 in NYC with food carts, and the goal of re-inventing the classic NYC hot dog cart with a higher quality natural product mix. We now have carts in Central Park and at Met Life Stadium in NJ, and in March 2012 we launched our first fixed location along RT 95 in CT.
The company's goal is to provide an all-natural alternative to traditional fast food at an affordable premium price.
