Are you interested in working at Butter and Cream?
This is what we are: Butter and Cream is a locally owned business focused on producing and serving top quality, all-natural ice cream, sorbet, and desserts utilizing superior ingredients. We make all our ice cream and desserts in small batches.
The vision for making Butter and Cream a success centers on two equally important goals:
Superior Product: Our goal is nothing less than to produce the best ice cream in Georgia, and to highlight it with our delicious hand-made sauces and toppings, in creative forms and presentations.
Superior Atmosphere: We strive to create a fun, welcoming retail experience through the combination of a well-designed shop and unsurpassed customer service.
Here is what we can do for you:
- We have some flexibility regarding work schedules – though we are looking to staff-up for an extremely busy season.
- Competitive pay – we have the internal flexibility to pay people in line with what they contribute to the business.
- All team members are colleagues. Our goal is an empowered staff whose members will have the opportunity to advance as the business develops.

In all employees, Butter and Cream is looking for individuals who are hard workers, willing team members, and in tune with our mission of providing superior products and customer service. In turn, we are 100% committed to creating a fair, positive working environment AND a meaningful work experience for our employees, whether you are working 10 hours a week or full time. We will achieve that by fostering an atmosphere where employees are encouraged to think, to participate in how the business works, to offer suggestions, and where new challenges and responsibilities are available for those who seek them.
