Our nut butter business is growing! With growth comes a need for help. We are looking for interns who are willing to help us make our delicious nut butters as well as help us sell our butters during our weekend markets! Are you a motivated, outgoing, and interested in potentially running your own business one day? You might be a perfect fit to help our small business grow!!

 

About us:

 

NutMeg’s is a social business created by Billy and Megan Mzenga. The idea to start a social business grew out of a passion for making delicious nut butters and a desire to give back to Billy’s home country of Kenya. We currently make Peanut Butter, Cashew Butter, Almond Butter, Pistachio Butter, Super Seed Butter and will be continuing to expand our selection moving forward! Currently, we are located in Chicago and work out of a commercial grade kitchen near the Medical District just West of Downtown. Being an intern with us would entail the following:

Responsibilities:

  • Assist with production of nut butters once or twice a week at a commercial kitchen

  • Help at a Farmers market which involves selling, restocking, and giving out samples

  • Utilize any other skill that may help us (ie: marketing, social media, photography)

 

Schedule:

  • Flexible but primarily work in the kitchen once a week during late afternoon/evening 

  • Markets are typically on weekends in the morning to the early afternoon

 

Pay:

  • Currently unpaid (but this could change!). Additionally, you will be able to take home nut butters whenever you work. Lastly, internship would be a strong addition to your resume giving you business, sales, and manufacturing experience. Additionally, if you are in school, we would be willing to work with you to be able to get you school credit!

 

Hours:

  • 10-15 per week

 

Dates:

  • Flexible, but Farmers Market Season generally runs from May to October & Holiday Markets are typically in late November/early December
