Experienced Artisan 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 and pastries for the best chefs in Denver and Boulder.

Room for advancement for the right candidate. Attention to detail needed for creating authentic, all-natural, 100% handmade artisan breads and pastries from scratch, every day, with no shortcuts for Denver's best restaurants and hotels (including all of the 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016 Denver James Beard award semifinalists and Denver’s only James Beard award-winning chef).

Grounded in artisan philosophy and focused on quality above all else, we are committed to using only the finest natural, organic, and locally sourced ingredients, including organic whole grain flours milled in-house with our Osttiroler stone mill. We’re the only bakery of our size in Denver making every single piece of bread entirely by hand. 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 15-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.

We recently won the 2015 Colorado Companies to Watch award, were voted Best Bakery/Savory 2016 by Westword, won both Readers’ and Editors’ Choice awards for Westword’s Best Bread 2015, and won Editors’ Choice award for Best Bread in 5280’s 2014 awards.

Please visit our website at www.gratefulbread.com for interviews and articles about our bakery.

Please email your resume for consideration to gratefulbread@att.net

Pay based on experience. No phone calls, please.
