We’re bun-believably excited to share that we’ve won two awards for being one of the best brands to work for!
Portillo’s was named to QSR Magazine’s inaugural Best Brands to Work For list, which recognizes the companies that are leading the restaurant industry as employers of choice. The magazine recognized our “secret sauce” of having both a strong team member proposition and a culture built through decades of centralized growth. Our industry-leading turnover rate and internal promotion rate over 80%, as well as our benefits, training and development programs, and company culture and values, were all contributing factors to the award.
Portillo’s was also named a Silver winner at the Best in Biz Awards in two categories that recognize our strong leadership, successful operations, and exceptional culture. We won Silver in both the ‘Company of the Year’ and the ‘Best Place to Work’ categories as a Large company.
“I’m extremely proud of the unrivaled energy and dedication our team members bring to our restaurants on a daily basis,” said Michael Osanloo, President & CEO of Portillo’s. “Being recognized as a Company of the Year, as well as a Best Place to Work, is a testament to the success of our company not only at an operational level, but at the very heart of our business – our people. Culture matters at Portillo’s. We lead with our values of family, greatness, energy and fun, and this is what allows us to have some of the best people in the industry on our team.”
