Così is the premium convenience restaurant that offers breakfast, lunch, afternoon coffee, dinner and dessert menus full of creative, fresh, flavorful foods and beverages. Così has developed featured foods that are built around a secret, generations-old recipe for crackly crust flatbread. This artisan bread is freshly baked in front of customers throughout the day in open-flame stone hearth ovens prominently located in each of the restaurants.
As a preferred employer of choice, we created an environment that gives our partners something to look forward to every day. We are a People Development Company and we measure our success not only on sales and profit but by the well-being of our partners.
The Così vision is to become America's favorite quality, convenience restaurant by providing customers authentic, innovative, savory food while remaining an affordable luxury. And we would like for you to be a part of it!
