Kitchen Manager Wanted to Train Entrepreneurs at Casa Azafrán

Posted By on Wed, Nov 14, 2012 at 6:41 AM

Regular Scene readers will recall that in our 2012 Fall Guide we talked to the folks at Conexión Américas about the very cool new Casa Azafrán community center, under construction just south of the fairgrounds on Nolensville Pike. You may also recall the variety of services to be made available under one roof, including health care, financial counseling, after-school programs and, germane to our interests here at Bites, the nifty food business-related aspect of the center's plans:

And the event space, which opens onto a stone-enclosed courtyard, sits adjacent to what is planned to be a 1,500-square-foot commercial-grade kitchen and cooking demonstration area, with four pantries available for rental. The double-wide kitchen and pantries are modeled after a similar cooperatively run space in San Francisco, and are aimed at helping small independent food businesses — the kind often started by women in their own homes — that might otherwise find it difficult to grow, while also adding on-site food options for event planners.

Now, according to a post on the Conexión website, they are hiring for a full-time commercial kitchen manager to run the new space — "a talented, self-starter with commercial kitchen experience to develop the curriculum and training of food entrepreneurs." Sounds like a great opportunity in what I can say is an amazing new space. More info here; full job description here (PDF).
