WE ARE: Located in Milwaukee’s historic Bayview neighborhood, along the shores of Lake Michigan in Wisconsin, our brand-new 10,000-square-foot bakery and 12 cafes have ambitions to grow our craft and expand our product offerings into select wholesale accounts and our ever-growing family of cafes.

For the past 15 years, we have baked a range of high-quality, from-scratch, sweet and savory products. With the construction of our new bakery, our intention has always been to create amazing artisan bread.  Over the last year we have been developing our craft, slowly baking bread in small batches (100 loaves daily) and increasing our production as we become more skilled.

THE JOB: We need help ramping up our systems so that the bread actually improves as our production gets bigger—rather than the other way around. We need seasoned bread experts who can communicate and train others to build a team of talented artisans.  We need folks who are passionate about bread to push the boundaries of what is possible and to inspire our team to create and learn new things.

OUR COMMITMENT: We will treat you fairly. We will respect your point of view.  We will maintain a workplace where you can learn things about bread, business, and communication, where you will have room to grow and get better. We will run a financially healthy business, make necessary investments, and support this collective vision and your efforts.
