In 2015 we started our journey as pop-up vendors participating in various markets from NYC to Hudson Valley. After six years of operating as a pop-up, we found our own storefront in April 2021. Since opening our doors for takeout on a part-time basis (Friday-Sunday), we have more than tripled our production capacity with the small crew of 3, which we started our business with. In order to increase our production further, we are looking to expand our team!  Given that we are such a small and rapidly growing business, the candidate hired will have the opportunity to grow, have their input valued, and be able to help shape our future.
