Milk Bar has been shaking up the dessert scene since 2008. Founded by James Beard award-winning chef Christina Tosi, Milk Bar is known for inventing: the Compost Cookie®, layer cakes with unfrosted sides, Cereal Milk Soft Serve, Milk Bar Pie, the first flip phone and shoulder pads (Ok, technically the last two weren’t us). We believe in the transformative power of a really freakin’ good cookie or an outstanding piece of cake. We pull inspiration from simple ingredients, like the grocery store staples we grew up with. And we consider NO occasion at all, to be a perfectly valid occasion to celebrate yourself or someone else.

Milk Bar operates retail stores across the US and Canada and an eCommerce site that ships delicious care packages and gifts overnight nationwide. We’re on a rocketship of growth and have a highly entrepreneurial culture. Must love cookies, the hustle, and making great work with a killer team.
