The Penny Ice Creamery is the only Ice Cream Shop in Santa Cruz that makes ice cream totally from scratch using local and organic ingredients. We create unique, seasonal ice cream flavors made with local and organic ingredients.
The Ice Cream Maker/ Pastry Assistant position is responsible for preparing all of the ingredients that go into our ice cream, and eventually spinning and pasteurizing the ice cream. This includes cracking eggs, making syrups, jams, preparing fruit and vegetables. Once you have shown your prep abilities then we will be able to train you to spin ice cream using our Emery Thompson Spinner (made in this USA!). One you master this, then we would be able to train you to pasteurize and help you get your pasteurization license. Anyone with a current pasteurization license is encouraged to apply.
The Penny Ice Creamery complies with all Orders Of The Health Officer Of The City Of Santa Cruz, as well as the Santa Cruz County Public Health COVID-19 Site-Specific Protection Plan.
The Glass Jar, Inc., a Santa Cruz, CA restaurant group, was founded in 2008 with a focus on the nexus of locally sourced food and community. We are the incubator and management company for The Penny Ice Creamery, The Picnic Basket, Snap Taco, and various community events.
