Is José Andrés' Fast Casual Place Becoming a Reality? (Updated)

Missy Frederick is the Cities Director for Eater.

Here's an intriguing craigslist ad if there ever was one: ThinkFoodGroup is looking to hire a chef for a "new fast casual concept."

The ad is looking for someone to lead and manage back of house operations, work with the director of restaurant operations, and take ownership of the concept (sounds like there are plans for multiple locations). The name of the fast-casual concept is not given.

José Andrés hasn't announced such a concept to date, but has made several public statements indicating he's eager to see high-profile chefs play a role in fast food. Eater has reached out to ThinkFoodGroup for any additional information. Update: A rep said they have "nothing to share" at the moment about the venture.

Looks like they're also hiring a marketing manager for the concept.
