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.

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 and 2015 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 custom specialty flours - soon to be stone ground in-house using local organic and non-GMO grains. We’re the only bakery of our size in Denver making every single piece of bread entirely by hand, with no molders, rounders, or sheeters. 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 14-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, both Readers’ and Editors’ Choice awards for Westword’s Best Bread 2015, and Editors’ Choice award for Best Bread in 5280’s 2014 awards.
