Delivery Driver and Warehouse Associate

Company Overview

Dandelion Chocolate

Dandelion Chocolate Website
Dandelion Chocolate is a bean-to-bar chocolate factory in San Francisco’s Mission District. We make chocolate from only two ingredients, cocoa beans and cane sugar, and travel to origins as often as we can to build good, trusting relationships with the producers who grow and ferment the beans we buy. We’re always on the search for good cocoa beans, and now we’re looking for a Delivery Driver & Warehouse Associate to help our three locations run smoothly.

You will be responsible for delivering chocolate and treats to Dandelion Chocolate’s San Francisco locations. You will be the person that we rely on to ensure that all of our retail locations have what they need to be successful whether it’s chocolate bars or paper cups. There’s no such thing as a typical day, but your mornings begin with packing the van with drinks and pastries for our cafes and making the rounds to the Ferry Building and Valencia Street. When you arrive back to the 16th Street Factory, the cafe manager asks if you can accommodate a last minute delivery of chocolate bars to the Valencia Street Cafe. Later, after all of the deliveries are completed, you assist the Fulfillment team with the afternoon orders, packing up boxes. To end your day, you help receive a delivery of paper goods and put them away in our storage facility before heading home for the day. This is a full-time role Wednesday-Sunday and starts at $21/hour.
