Restaurant Chain Brags About Lower Percentage of White Workers - It Backfires Badly

A restaurant chain’s obvious effort to score points with progressives is leaving a bad taste in everyone’s mouth.

In a Jan. 1 Twitter post, the Rockville, Maryland-based CAVA Group apparently decided that bragging about a drop in the percentage of white employees at corporate headquarters was a great way to ring in the New Year.

Judging by the reaction on Twitter, though, it was a disaster.

The tweet couched its information with a saccharine caption no one could disagree with. Clearly addressed to its customers, it stated:

“Your continued support has helped us make strides to better our organization and the communities we serve. In such a challenging year, we couldn’t have achieved any of it without you. We look forward to continuing this work and welcoming you to our table in 2021.”



 Well, CAVA might welcome you to the table if you’re white (and a paying customer), but judging by the caption and its implication, it might not be so welcoming when it comes to employment at the corporate headquarters.

The post includes a graphic of what the company says are the percentages of its employees broken down by race, both at the headquarters level and in the chain’s locations nationwide.

Founded in 2006, according to the Washington Business Journal, Cava Group purchased the Texas-based Zoe’s Kitchen restaurant chain in 2019, taking the company from managing 75 CAVA Grill restaurants to a combined 330 restaurants, according to a CNBC report from April 2019.

That a company in the United States of America in 2021 would even think of posting its employee breakdown by race as a PR ploy is bad enough — understandable in a race-obsessed environment created by a combination of progressive politics and pure street thuggishness, but still deplorable.

The suggestion from the tweet’s caption that racial makeup of a company’s workforce is an automatic indicator of what makes it a company a “better” organization is simply repugnant.
