Hester General Store is looking for its next star baker!
Do you enjoy making doughs from scratch? Are you obsessed with sprinkles and exotic fruits? Do you eat dessert every day (or... at least dream of that life)? If so, Hester General Store is looking for you!
Hester General Store is looking four our next star baker!
Our owner started this business with no culinary school experience; her experience was cultivated during "night school" thanks to a great cookbook collection + NYTimes Food subscription. Sound familiar? We are looking for those bakers who are passionate about their craft, who have baked pies with a new season's harvest, and who eat raw cookie dough. Period.
We are currently renovating our store and will begin baking for wholesale accounts in a DHEC-certified commissary kitchen located in Travelers Rest, SC. Later this year, you will be baking out of our facility in Dacusville (Easley), SC.
