PT Instructor w/ Steady Summer Hours The Flavor Labs

  • Date Posted February 09, 2024
  • Location Paramus, NJ
  • Category Culinary / Education
  • Job type Part-Time
Company description

The Flavor Labs is a kid’s cooking studio with a mission to change the way children and their families engage with food. STEM, food education and sustainability are core to our curriculum, and nurture an appreciation for food and the science behind it. Experimenting with flavors and ingredients fosters creativity and encourages children to think “outside the bowl”. We have seen firsthand how much independence children gain in the kitchen when given the appropriate level of guidance – and the confidence that follows is a testament to the work we do every day.  We are also branching out to offer more advanced adult classes and events, and would love a "seasoned" instructor to help with our offering! 

We are rapidly a growing new business (opened our doors in Sept 2020), holding in-studio classes and parties.  Our classes have been quickly selling out and we are in need of support across the board!  We continue to expand our curriculum, increase the number of classes and local partnerships, and recently opened a second location in Paramus.  We are looking for ambitious, passionate team members who are willing to do what it takes help this small company flourish.
