ABOUT KIRKENDOLL MANAGEMENT
Kirkendoll Management (KM) is a boutique hospitality management company that owns and operates restaurants and gentlemen’s clubs in the Southern United States and Aruba. KM’s headquarters in New Orleans, LA serves as the backbone for these establishments by providing day-to-day assistance with everything from operations and marketing to accounting and legal. Our mission is to empower our managers and staff on the ground to create the ultimate guest experience for our customers.
At KM’s corporate headquarters, our talented team of executive leadership is divided into three divisions: Nightclubs, Licensing, and Restaurants. These teams operate independently, but the majority of our corporate office supports all teams. In addition to the daily management of our existing operations, we are constantly focused on refining brand strategy, expanding operations into new markets, and innovative ways to improve our corporate office and the hospitality industry in general.
THE ASSOCIATE PROGRAM
KM’s Associate program is a 10-week rotational opportunity that allows professionals interested in hospitality, finance, marketing and advertising, human resources, and/or business strategy to gain experience. Throughout the summer, associates will rotate through the different departments at KM and work alongside our executive and operations teams. Associates will have the opportunity to work with all Divisions, although you may choose to concentrate on a specific Division
