We’re hiring for Store Managers!
Heine Brothers’ Coffee starts with a great cup of coffee, but our company is about so much more than great coffee, for our customers and for our employees. This all begins with our commitment to a spirit of business excellence and to running our stores profitably. Without this commitment to business excellence and profit, we would not survive long and would not get the chance to do all of the other things in our community and around the world that matter so much to us.
While we lead with great cup of coffee and a focus on profit, our company and the way we run our stores have always been about more than simply driving profit. From our founding, we have been focused on making a positive impact in our community and around the World. This commitment to a focus on both profit and impact is what so many of us love being part of.
The Store Manager’s job is to oversee the positive and profitable operation of their store. The biggest part of the store manager’s job will be to make sure we hire, train and keep baristas who are committed to delivering remarkable coffee shop experiences to our customers. It is critical that store managers understand how to create and maintain a healthy and positive store environment so that we keep baristas who will care about delivering the remarkable customer experience. Store Managers are expected to set the bar high for baristas in their store, to celebrate great work and to promptly and effectively discipline where necessary.
Store Managers will work closely with their respective Operations Director to promote our values-driven, for-profit culture, tell the Heine Brothers’ story and enhance the HB brand.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with the Omni on their Louisville hotel.

It all started with a realization: there weren’t any micro-brewed soy sauces being made in the United States. Add bourbon to the equation, and Bourbon Barrel Foods was born.
What began as spit-balling creative business ideas among friends (over oysters, no less), has since developed into a thriving local business. Bourbon Barrel Foods, which launched in 2006 with its signature Bluegrass Soy Sauce, is the brainchild of Matt Jamie. Matt, a returned Louisvillian, recognized the power of the bourbon trend early on and got to work creating the first and only Bourbon-barrel aged soy sauce.
You’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who doesn’t love Tyler. Outgoing and fun, Tyler is friends with everyone. It’s hard not to get drawn into a conversation with him!
Georgia, now the manager at Vint Coffee, loves working with him because, “It’s always a blast! Not only is he great at his job, but he’s constantly cracking up his coworkers. He’s an amazing latte artist, but he’s also accomplished at stage lighting. He even worked with Actors Theater over the summer!”
