Every Monday we introduce a new member of the JUK team! From baristas to chefs, from behind-the-scenes accountants to event managers, here's the crew that keeps JUK ticking.
RUBY – KITCHEN HAND
Ruby is our weekend kitchen hand in Remuera, when she’s not studying cookery during the week. She’s the kindest person you’ll ever meet with an infectious smile!
KELLY – HEAD CHEF
This is Kelly, our head chef in Remuera! She loves dogs, international confectionery and goes a bit mad for a goodie bag. Kelly talks mile-a-minute and keeps us all smiling and on our toes!
CHARLOTTE – FRONT OF HOUSE
This is Charlotte, when she’s not behind the machine making delicious coffee for our happy customers, she’s interning at JUK HQ, helping us with our marketing plan.
HARRIET – CHEF
Harriet has been with us for 2 years and is an integral part of the JUK kitchen team! Originally from the UK and worked in Queenstown before she found us. A salad queen, my right-hand woman at weddings and events, and one of the hardest workers I know.
MATT – DELIVERIES
Have you met Matt, our friendly and conscientious delivery driver? He’s so switched on and has changed our lives for the better! And currently only one parking ticket under his belt.
LILA – CATERING
As our Events Manager, Lila spends her week meeting with clients, planning menus and is a bit of a champ behind the bar at any event! And if that wasn’t enough, Lila is also a customer service superstar and manages our in-store and online product inventory!
SAM – BARISTA
Our Sam is a magician behind the coffee machine, and loves a cup of Joe so much she plans to open her own roastery one day!
JULIA – BAKER
You'll find Julia elbow-deep in flour and dough every morning, pumping out fresh scones, muffins, slices and all of your favourite JUK sweet treats.
VALENTINA – FRONT OF HOUSE
Valentina is our resident Italian! Affectionately known to us as Vale, you'll find her splitting her week across both stores. Say ciao next time she's working the till!
