Our Employees

It all starts with our employees. To provide authentic products, we need to be true to our values. Those values start with prioritizing employee growth, success and happiness. Fostering a culture of mutual respect and collaboration is what makes King Street Special.

Culture from Within

Providing our employees with meaningful opportunities to grow, learn and thrive is a company priority. Decisions aren’t made in a vacuum; each valued employee contributes ideas and works together to expand and grow King Street. 

Building a Pipeline

Our internship program provides opportunities for local students from underserved communities. New York City public high school students who want hands-on experience in a kitchen are welcome to apply to 6 - 12 month internship for school credit. Upon completion of the program, many students have found full time jobs at some of the most notable kitchens in the city.

Causes We Support


We are proud supporters of the Trevor Project. Whether it’s through donating sales from our Pride Month products or contributing baked goods for employee meetings, we strive to support the important work the Trevor Project does to help the LGBTQ community. If you or anyone you know is in need of immediate support, please call the TrevorLifeline at 1-866-488-7386.

Our Planet

We can’t keep making delicious baked goods if we don’t take care of our planet. King Street is committed to sustainable practices and doing our part to be as environmentally responsible as possible.

How We Bake

We bake our goods in their containers to reduce water usage and strategically plan ingredient and material allocation to ensure nothing goes to waste.

How We Deliver

All of our wholesale products are delivered in reusable, eco-friendly containers that keep our pastries fresh. Our packaging is strategically sized to reduce food waste and our packaging is certified recyclable by the Fibre Box Association’s Standard, our lids are made of PET plastic, and our paper is sourced from Sustainable Forest Initiative’s certified paper mills.
