Who We Are
Edelweiss Mountain Deli History and Position Summary:
Edelweiss Mountain Deli is where old friends from Stowe and around the world connect around outdoor adventure, and local food and beverages. First built as a one room schoolhouse serving the Luce Hill area back in the 1830’s, the building was purchased and moved in 1940 to its present location on the Mountain Road. In 1968, the building and land were purchased by Swiss ski instructors who founded Edelweiss and set it on its course. 52 years later, this local institution serves Stowe while honoring its legacy as a place where community is built one conversation at a time.
Vermont is a special place with an agrarian legacy that cultivates a culture of innovation and a commitment to local, high quality, craft endeavors. This culture has nurtured many remarkable family-owned food and beverage entrepreneurial success stories. 185 years after the one room school-house was built, Edelweiss today has a mission of sharing Vermont at its finest.
Edelweiss is a specialty food and beverage retailer with a significant commitment to prepared food. It is and always has been a to go / curbside business. Historically lunch-focused, new owners have recently made significant strategic financial and operational commitments to the breakfast and dinner business. The new role of Sous Chef represents a unique opportunity for the right person to quickly build upon and significantly enhance Edelweiss' reputation as a destination of choice – and by extension their professional reputation - in Vermont’s most global market. In close partnership with the Executive Chef and owners, they will be responsible for strengthening the excellence and expanding the inherent promise (creativity, quality, freshness, presentation and affordability) of our prepared food. In turn, the other assets of the business can be creatively leveraged in ways that catalyze connecting with, building and supporting our community.
