Lead Barista

January 24, 2022by Kaitlyn Whalen

The French Oven Bakery & Café in Scripps Ranch San Diego is seeking a Lead Barista on Saturdays and Sundays.


The French Oven Bakery and Café was opened by local Scripps Ranch residents, Yves Fournier, and his wife, Susie. Chef Yves grew up in France, in a small village at the base of the French Alps called Veyrier du Lac. Baking has always been a Fournier family tradition, and today, Chef Yves represents the 5th generation of bakers in his family. An old family bakery sign from 1840 hangs on the wall of The French Oven. It belonged to his great, great grandfather, Jean-Baptiste Fournier . Today, Chef Yves lives with his wife and two children, Ella and Charlie, in Scripps Ranch. They began a Pop-Up bakery business from their home in the fall of 2016, offering croissants and other delicious treats to their neighbors. With unbelievable support and encouragement from friends and neighbors in the community, they decided to open their own boulangerie and patisserie, hoping to bring a little slice of Veyrier du Lac home to San Diego.

Today, the French Oven is a busy, neighborhood bakery voted as one of San Diego’s best new bakeries. We may be small in size, but we are big on volume and serious on quality and customer service.
