Meet Our Baristas and Bakers At Emporium Express
Not only are we, Emporium Express, passionate about our local community and coffee, but we are also just as passionate about our employees. Our baristas and bakers are what create our foundation of memorable flavor and seamless service. Our employees bring amazing creativity and experience to our business, which is why we offer eligibility to take language courses. If our employees take these language courses, they are reimbursed for completing and passing the course. By offering these language courses, we can help our employees better serve our community and those visiting the valley.
At Emporium Express, we strive to provide our employees with a fun and enjoyable work experience to grow and hone their skills. The craft of barista and baking is constantly evolving and always offers room for growth. We enjoy their skills, ideas, and passion.
Between our Bohemian vibes, language course eligibility, and barista or baker training and experience, our employees hone several skills and crafts when working at Emporium Express. We believe your passion should be possible. If you love coffee, espresso, refreshing smoothies, or home-baked goods, join our team today! We strive to empower our employees.
