Pastry Chef Jobs Chicago


Pastry Chef 

From the beginning, Starbucks set out to be a different kind of company. One that celebrates coffee, it’s rich tradition, and a feeling of connection. Continuing our quest in 2016, we announced a partnership with Princi, a renowned boutique bakery and café founded by Rocco Princi in 1986. Known for its artisan breads created from traditional family recipes, Princi’s six locations have become beloved experiences for customers across Milan and London.
Through the shared values for handcrafted experiences, Starbucks will expand standalone Princi specialty stores and begin including fresh baking in Starbucks Roasteries and Reserve stores, with the first opening in New York City in 2018.
To bring this vision to life we will be opening a Princi Kitchen in [LOCATION] to prepare all the food served in Roasteries and Princi Bakeries. The newly hired kitchen team will continue to bring to life the Princi brand by creating handcrafted foods such as pastries, cakes, fresh soups, salads and focaccia-style pizza as well as artisanal baked breads.
