Hi friends! We're excited to announce that the shop opening is getting closer and we are looking for talented individuals to join our cookie crew!
We’re looking for energetic, ambitious, dog lovers (of course, no dogs in the kitchen, but we’re a special kind of people…just sayin’), friendly, creative, cookie lovers, dedicated, detail-oriented, foodies, fun, hardworking, reliable individuals. In all seriousness, trustworthy, good humans that love food and looking to grow within a start-up environment. We have multiple positions available, but being a small team is like a family and we have to pitch in wherever is needed. We are willing to train.
We're like the little engine that could over here.... Overwhelmed is an understatement. There are SO. MANY. DECISIONS! Where EXACTLY should this outlet go, what will be plugged into said outlet to determine the circuit load (this...times 100), what sinks flow into this drain, where should the water heater be placed, which lights go to which switches, where should those switches go, spend an hour researching BLACK switches that are the mother of all switches that can dim AND turn on and off automatically, how wide should the stairs be, should we pick Black, Jet Black, Onyx, or Black Beauty paint, what size napkins do we want, how many coffee cups do we order, how many people do we hire, can we afford that, what are the plates going to look like on the tabletops, what soap dispenser looks best for the bathroom, design the menus, staff shirts, etc, rollout new logo, oh yeah, let's drive 7 hours to pick up a piece of equipment we need asap, and drive to 4 Home Depots to pick up tile, stain light fixtures in our spare time (spare time, haha) to match tables, shit, it's the first of the month!, how are we going to make 100 box cookie order next week with 2 people?! Are you stressed yet? We have answers to most of these questions, but it's a lot to execute at once. This is just a glimpse into my mind and I'm so excited to show everyone what BLACKOUT can be. If I see you on the street acting like a crazy person and I forget your name - I'm Sorry. Just bear with me. The good news, initial inspections are happening this week and then we get to start the pretty stuff. That phase will take a few weeks and then it's equipment deliveries and training. We'll be coming in hot for October...Watch for our hiring posts and our crowdfunding campaign to get some cool stuff and help us out in the process ;) Thanks for letting me vent. -Shana
