Our wholesale manager, inventory queen, and all-around genius right-hand woman Joan Baker became our first full-time employee in July of 2010. Joan was a classmate at FCI, and has worked in the kitchens of the famed Del Posto and Park Avenue Spring/Summer/Autumn/Winter, as well as the West Village cupcake haven Sweet Revenge. She brings loads of talent, an unmatched work ethic, and superior organizational skills to the kitchen, and she can be found at most major events we do. She’s also a dedicated runner who will be participating in the 2012 New York City Marathon, and has gotten the rest of the kitchen healthier by example. Thanks, Joan!
Jessie came to us from our alma mater FCI, and has yet again done the school proud. Braving a wicked commute from the Bronx every day, Jessie has raised the bar on reliability – and has one of the best attitudes we’ve ever come across, to boot. Aside from keeping us up-to-date on the latest in pop culture, what does she do in her spare time? Trains for zombie-themed 5k races, that’s what.
Michelle is another FCI alum. She proved her mettle in the godless no-man’s-land that is The Holidays (2011 edition), and is now an indispensable part of our production team. A CT native, her sterling work ethic, wackadoo-friendly sense of humor, and love of karaoke has earned her swift and total acceptance into the Liddabit family.
Victor found us through a mutual friend, and has been organizing and inventorying up a storm since late 2011. His extensive retail expertise has enabled us to step up our visual game (as it were) at the markets; all those neat, easy-to-read signs and sensible layout? You can thank Victor for that.
