Join The Pinch Team

The Pinch is the inspiration of Mark and Sam, two guys coming from the world of international travel and hospitality, who are extremely passionate about food and beautiful customer experiences.

We are two happy transplants to Switzerland who have been business partners for over 20 years.  Mark originally from the USA now calls Appenzellerland his home and Sam from Melbourne, Australia is a Zurich city urbanite.

 

With the opening of the Pinch in Summer 2019 , our goal is to bring the innovative and mouth watering food we know from our homes in Australia and the USA and experienced during our decades of business travels around the world to the city of St. Gallen.

 

Our newly established restaurant (60 seats inside/40 seats on terrace) and bar on Davidstrasse 20 aims to create a warm and inviting atmosphere whether for a morning coffee, a bite for lunch or dinner or to meet up with friends and share some pinchos in the evening at our bar.

Friendly, flexible and relaxed service is at our core and our mission is to make our customers feel welcomed and at home from early in the morning to late at night, seven days a week.

We are building a team of enthusiastic and creative individuals who enjoy creating wonderful food and an enjoyable time for our guests.  If you are like us and share the following qualities, then let's meet up to discuss joining The Pinch Team:
