2021 Top 50 Best Workplaces™ in Canada by Great Place to Work®
Demand for COBS Bread is unprecedented in this time of need, and we are hiring bakers to help serve our community.
Nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of our staff, franchisees, partners and customers.
We are reinforcing our rigorous standards and operating procedures in order to ensure we are providing the most sanitary and safe environment for our staff and customers.
At COBS Bread, we celebrate fresh. That freshness starts with our bakers every morning, as they start their days in an empty bakery. But when they leave—it’s filled with the artisan bread and delicious treats that they created that day.
Many of our bakers say that one of the best parts of their job is the fun they have when they’re at work. They’ve got the music playing while mixing doughs, they’re talking to their peers while pulling artisan bread out of the oven, and at the same time, they’re crafting something wonderful that will be shared in homes all over the community that day.
Thank you for your interest in joining COBS Bread and sharing our renowned fresh baked goods with your community.
