About Republic Kolache

Republic Kolache is bringing the 'National Pastry of Texas' (aka the kolache) to DC. (For the uninitiated, the kolache is a Czech pastry consisting of a light, yeasty, slightly sweet dough filled with either fruit or savory ingredients. It is delicious.)

The likes of Matt Lauer and NPR have been calling the kolache the "next cronut" — we don't know about THAT, but so far DC does seem to be catching kolache fever.

We're excited to keep growing our scrappy little operation, and we're looking for a few good people to join our team.

Retail Associate

We're looking for front-of-house staff to help run our retail operation. We're currently operating on the weekends only (see locations here), but will be expanding to additional days/locations soon.

Roles we're hiring for include:

  • Cashiers
  • Food prep
  • Bussers

We're looking for people who care about doing great work and are interested in helping us perfect our retail process.

Right now this is just 1-2 shifts per week (Saturday & mornings/afternoons), but we have some other retail outlets in the works soon so we're looking for staff who are open to growing with us.

Pay is hourly + tip share.

Retail Manager

We're looking for a Retail Manager as we expand our upstart pastry business across DC!

After serving sellout crowds for weekly 'Kolache Saturdays' at our 'Republic Kolache @ American Ice Co.' residency, we're expanding to additional retail outlets, events & other activations.

We're looking for a responsible, adaptable, entrepreneurial-minded individual to lead (and grow) our retail operation. FOH experience desired — but your #1 qualification will be a badass worth ethic and a dedication to providing a great experience for your customers.

Shifts are currently Sat. & Sun. mornings/afternoons (with additional retail days coming soon) as well as some flexible weekday hours to assist in planning, scheduling & other back-office tasks. As we work to open our permanent retail location, we're looking for someone to grow with us and ramp into an eventual full-time role.

  • opportunities for inclusion in the creative process for new flavors

We're looking for people who are detail-oriented, process-oriented, and are passionate about creating an amazing product every single time.

Pay is hourly, depending on experience.
