Doing What's Right For Our Team

Showing our appreciation for those who don’t get the spotlight, the Heart of House (our kitchen team).

We think that it’s essential that when we make a change of this magnitude, we include you, our valued guests and fans, by letting you know what is going on with a thoughtful explanation.

Beginning October 10th, we’re introducing a 2% Heart of House (kitchen team) Appreciation fee to the guest check that will directly benefit our Heart of House (HOH) team. This fee is calculated on food only.  Despite providing jobs that pay above “the living wage” we struggle with the equitable disparities between service and kitchen staff since everyone in our hearths and industry alike works equally hard to provide our guests with a great experience.

The Heart of House Appreciation Fee allows all kitchen team members to also benefit from the top-line success of the hearth.  They feel the love from you as their living wages increase.  Every cent of the 2% goes directly to each of our HOH team members.  We have chosen to pursue the Appreciation Fee as opposed to an across-the-board menu increase as we believe it is 100% transparent to you as well as memorializes where this endeavor keeping us honest in the intent.  We thank you; they thank you!  We hope that this initiative gains traction throughout our communities and that it enjoys support from you, our community and beyond.

Please do not hesitate to engage our management team with any questions or concerns you may have.  We are all more than happy to chat with you about it.  We are grateful for you choosing Flatbread Company!

The Portsmouth Story

Portsmouth, New Hampshire… When Montgomery Ward moved their catalog showroom to the malls in Newington in 1973, the Portsmouth Beauty School took over and sealed up the floor with carpet and the tin ceiling with drop ceiling. Years later, the Nardello Family brought Flatbread Company in and moved upstairs. We uncovered and restored the tin ceilings, wooden floors, and some of our seasoned citizens can still describe where the counter was where they ordered their first electric appliances. Our hearths only bake with fire and we thank the Portsmouth community for their unwavering support of what we do.

Keep Each Other Well, Jay
