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 our beans. We are currently seeking a dishwasher and busser for our café and factory on 16th Street. At Dandelion, our dishwasher is as important to our daily success as our chocolate makers and baristas.

There is no such thing as a typical day, but your morning might start by clearing the space in front of the launchpad to ensure deliveries will not be hindered. Once you have checked in with the team, you print out a list of the online orders since yesterday and begin neatly packing up bars of chocolate and writing personal notes to customers. Next you have a meeting with the team, you wanted to brainstorm alternative packaging methods, the current brown paper protects the bars but you think it’s clunky and could be improved for the customer experience. As the meeting wraps up you receive an email from the cafe, they are running short on almond milk and it’s only going to get busier until they close. You help the delivery driver load up the van and make sure to note the change in inventory so that your coworker is prepared the next morning. Before the end of the day you organize yourself for the next day, tidy the area, returning your supplies to their labeled home and clearing tables of odds and ends.
