Our Team Members receive world-class personal and professional training and development to create their own path with us. Start as an hourly team member in the field, at our commissary kitchen, or at our support center, and we'll help you develop the skills to run your own team and even work your way to six figures.

We Got You

Get paid well for the job you do, and get paid when you want, plus you'll have a flexible schedule, free unrivaled Chicago-street food while you work, and premium holiday pay.

"Getting paid well for a job well done feels great!" - Victor Scalia Portillo's Team Member

Serve Your Community

We're not just in a community, we strive to be a part of it. We give back through fundraisers, new restaurant initiatives, food donations, national charity partnerships and our own Heart of Portillo's Fund, which supports Portillo’s team members in need. Through fundraisers and new restaurant opening events, we’ve donated $1.3M to charitable organizations and raised over $400,000 for our team members since we established the Heart of Portillo’s 501(c)3 Fund in 2020.
