Love baked goodness? We do, and we are looking for skilled bakers. Some of our made-from-scratch baked goods include: yeast breads, angel food cakes, cinnamon rolls, cookies, sweet breads and pies. During pumpkin season (September and October), we bake in two shifts, and we do it at a fast pace. We work hard and have to be high energy to produce a ridiculous amount of baked goodness. The work isn’t always glamorous and fun; lots of baked goods means lots of dishes. You will be doing them too. If you like early mornings and love the smell of deliciousness, this might be the job for you.
