Our mission is to touch and enhance lives through the joy that is Krispy Kreme, not only in our doughnut shops but also in grocery and convenience stores. This is where you come in! We make sweet treats in our Doughnut Factories, and in this role, you will do just that- ensuring that the doughnuts you make inspire customer wonder by meeting all our quality and food safety standards. You will prepare dough, glaze, icing and fillings. You’ll make sure the doughnut-making equipment is running in top shape and fix any issues that may arise.
What will you do?
You’ll inspire customer wonder by making delicious sweet treats according to Krispy Kreme high quality standards. Making doughnuts requires preparing ingredients, following the right production schedule, weighing ingredients, tracking how the equipment is doing (from the proofer to the fryer and beyond), keeping an eye on how the doughnuts are looking as they come off the line, and helping to pack them up when needed. You’ll also master your craft as you minimize waste, document the production specs and readings, and restock as you go. You’ll get to know the equipment well and be able to troubleshoot it or even repair it when needed. You’ll also keep things clean and up to the highest food safety standards. As our Doughnut Maker, you’re looked to as a leader on the team, modeling the best communications skills, teamwork and respect of others. You’ll help when your leader requests it in other areas at times too.
On the move
This is a role for people who prefer not sitting still. Get ready to get moving while you create beautiful doughnuts! You’ll lift 50 to 75 pounds often, and you’ll pull carts with 100-pound bags of our doughnut mix. You’ll need to be able to move around, read equipment dials and measuring devices, as well as use cleaning equipment.
What makes you a great fit?
You have 2-4 years of experience working in a food manufacturing or a similar environment, doing food production or processing and reading standard operating procedures. You can troubleshoot minor equipment failures and are a good problem-solver. Experience in Food Safety is ideal. You can communicate with fellow Krispy Kremers effectively and know how to stay organized. You can read and do basic math as well as use weights and measurements. It wouldn’t hurt if you are detail-oriented and enjoy documenting the work you do. Problem-solving and basic computer skills will also come in handy! We also prefer for you to have a high school diploma or GED.
