Career Opportunities

We really are a small batch Artisan Bakery that incorporates all our fresh bread, croissants and other baked goods into our breakfast and lunch cafe menu.

We started baking in the ’70s and grew from one small bakery in the San Francisco Bay area into a national company employing 250 people. Eventually, we sold the big business and moved into the small town of Hardwick, Massachusetts, where, after a short hiatus, we opened a small bakery called Rose32 that blends decades of world-class know-how with a quaint hands-on approach.

We do it all and have been for over 30 years. We are a hugely successful award winning Bakery and Cafe with a million plus in sales a year. We are quality driven and committed to perfecting simplicity in all we do. Open since 2010 in Central Massachusetts, each year our continued growth means hiring more employees.
