Experienced Artisan Bread Bakers
Grateful Bread Company, a family owned and operated, rapidly growing wholesale artisan bakery, is looking for committed bakers who want to grow with us and make custom handmade artisan breads for the best chefs in Denver.
Room for advancement for the right candidate. Attention to detail needed for creating authentic, all-natural, 100% handmade artisan breads from scratch, every day, with no shortcuts for Denver's best restaurants and hotels (including all of the 2013 and 2014 Denver James Beard Award semi-finalists and Denver’s only James Beard Award-winning chef).
Grateful Bread is the only bakery of its size in Denver that makes every single piece of bread and pastry entirely by hand, with no molders, rounders, or sheeters. We believe in quality first, above everything, and we’d rather maintain our quality than rush the process with a lot of chemical and mechanical shortcuts. Once you start using machines to shape the bread instead of your hands, you stop being a true artisan bakery. And our artisan philosophy is at the heart of our bakery - we wouldn’t be who we are without it.
We use a different starter for nearly every different type of dough, carefully maintaining over 10 different starters on any given day (including our 13-year-old natural sourdough starter), which is what gives our breads their unique character and flavor.
Our guiding philosophy is uncompromising dedication to quality, maintaining the integrity of the artisan process, using only the very best all-natural ingredients, and creating an environment for artisan bakers to thrive. We remain true to our core principles even when it’s not the most economically feasible thing to do, but we have happy customers and happy employees, so that’s the bottom line for us.
Here’s a link to an episode of a PBS series “Chef Driven” we were featured in.
Here’s a link to a recent Denver Post article on Grateful Bread.
