Kolache Factory Takes Aim at a June Hiring Boom with Big Bonuses
Kolache Factory Offers Signing and Referral Bonuses in its ‘We Want You’ Hiring Campaign
June 15, 2021 // Franchising.com // Kolache Factory, a fast-growing bakery-café franchise that serves Czech-inspired pastries filled with fruits, meats, and cheeses, is launching an aggressive hiring campaign this month, and enticing new and current employees with cash!
The “We Want You” campaign offers a $250 signing bonus for successful new full-time employees and the existing employees who refer them. New part time employees – and referrals for them -- will receive a $100 signing bonus.
“We love our employees, and we want everyone to know it! That’s why our “We Want You” hiring campaign is rewarding both new and existing employees,” said Dawn Nielsen, Chief Operating Officer of Kolache Factory. “We are excited to offer this great employment opportunity to people looking for full or part time work at one of our bakeries. Our customers have been so loyal during the pandemic, and we will do everything we can to give them a fabulous Kolache Factory experience and contribute to getting the economy moving at full force!”
The pandemic has taken its toll on everyone but one of the biggest casualties has turned out to be a workforce shortage. According to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, there are more than nine million job openings in the United States and the biggest increase in job openings in the last month has been in food service. The National Restaurant Association reports the industry is still 1.5 million jobs below pre-pandemic levels. Even though customers are ready to come back, more than 90 percent of state and local chambers say a lack of workers is holding back economic growth.
Kolache Factory is working to be part of the solution with its proactive efforts to add 100 new employees to the payroll in June. It’s grab-n-go, handheld pastries stuffed with cheeses, meats, or sweets, turned out to be the perfect pandemic food for families and is now the perfect opportunity to bring home extra cash. As costs are rising across the board, the established 39-year-old family company is offering early shift hours, making it a perfect second job for those looking to supplement their income.

Still don’t know what a kolache is? Here’s a recap:
Kolaches, pronounced koh-lah-chees, were born in Czechoslovakia centuries ago when a young girl nabbed some soft, sweet bread dough from her mom, added plums and tossed it in the oven. Her dad grabbed one for a snack and when he took a bite, the hot plum juice made him circle like a wheel in delight. The Czech word for wheel is “kola” - so the kolache was born. It became a tasty and beloved treat throughout Eastern Europe and arrived in America in the 1850s when Czech settlers came to Texas. By the 1900s, the Czech immigrants were holding yearly celebrations to honor their beloved culinary treat - the kolache.
It didn’t take long for kolaches to get a Texan twist, so now the sweet pastries are filled with savory meats, cheeses and spices, perfect as an on-the-go snack for any meal. Kolache Factory has taken the iconic Texan delicacy and made it available from coast to coast.
