Bread Baker - Savannah, Georgia

The Grey Market is looking for a friendly and eager Bread Baker to lend a hand in the bread program that supports both our menu and the menu of our flagship location, The Grey Restaurant. Bringing her personal take on Port City Southern food to a city of her youth allows Mashama Bailey to tap into all of her experiences to create dishes that are deep, layered, and soulful in their flavors.

We are committed to providing our team with the tools required to achieve success. This begins with creating a supportive and respectful working environment. By doing this, our guests and visitors will naturally be treated to gracious hospitality, empathy and focused attention from all. And while we’re professionals with responsibilities and accountability we are very much a familial and collegial environment.

We’re proud to make health care available to all full-time employees (after plan imposed waiting period), provide a 401-k plan and offer PTO to salaried employees.

Please send resume to mktinfo@thegreyrestaurant.com
