Weco is a close knit team of individuals, united under a common goal to bring their guests the highest quality flavors and ingredients at a reasonable price. Transcending standard restaurant takeout/delivery, they offer compartmentalized, family style meals prepared fresh daily using sustainably and ethically sourced product.

They are an ever-growing startup that is looking to expand and push their limits over the next coming years. Because of this, they are hiring talented, dedicated and motivated individuals to become part of their core team.
