We currently sell our products at multiple farmers markets throughout San Francisco, have a growing wholesale program, and will be selling out of our retail space soon.

This position will be solely in charge of leading the bread team with quality control, training, and helping build the bread team as we grow.

Some tasks include:

  • Mixing/shaping/baking a variety or breads such as baguettes, country sourdough, and rye bread.
  • Inventory & ordering
  • Menu development
  • Overseeing daily production to ensure the team is on task
  • Quality control
  • Training new staff members
