To bake, package, and display exceptional bagels, pastries, breads, and specialty items for wholesale, catering, and retail clients.
Baker assures and documents sanitary conditions of baking area prior to proceeding with daily baking for clients. Baker takes foods prepared for daily bake from cooler and prepares for baking product in the oven. Depending on the product, preparation may include adding toppings before or after baking. Prepared products are placed in oven and matched to a pre-programed baking recipe. Depending on the product, baker may need to add, remove, or rotate product during the bake. Specific parameters such as oven temperature, freezer temperature, and cooler temperature will be noted and documented during the baking shift. Baked goods are examined for quality and either packaged or displayed in accordance with the daily pre-orders and required store bakes. Baker will need to slice some bagels for specific customers. Wholesale packaging is tagged with quantity, type of product, ingredients, and allergen labels. Baker will sequentially number the wholesale packaging for each destination. Items for retail sale are placed on display trays and arranged in display case in accordance with a standard layout. Baker is also responsible for traying the products for the next day's bake in accordance with estimates provided by others on a daily bake sheet. Upon completion of bake and preparation for the next bake, baker will clean and sanitize work area. Baker will advise owner/manager of any issues with product quality or with equipment. Baker will also advise owner/manager whenever inventory of toppings, packaging or other item is below par value.
