Meet our Teams!
Team Bean bridges the gap between baker and customer, and makes great coffee to go along with it. The focus is customer service, and sharing Companion’s combined passion for local artisan food and specialty coffee.
Team Toast produces all of those beautiful sourdough loaves that we love so much! With meticulous attention to detail, our bread bakers mix, scale, shape, and bake the best bread in Santa Cruz.
Team Butter is behind the delicious items that fill our pastry case each morning. From sourdough croissants to gluten-free biscotti, Team Butter creates an incredible variety of rustic, artisan pastries that change with the seasons and showcase the skill and creativity that is housed in our little kitchen.
Our Farmer’s Market staff maintain Companion’s presence in the wonderful community where the business first began. Team drive is the face of Companion outside of our shops. They take our products to a broader community across Santa Cruz, Aptos and Monterey Bay. Team Drive is also the home team of our essential delivery drivers. These early risers deliver Companion goods to grocery stores, restaurants and coffee shops all over Santa Cruz!
