Double Good creates joy through our product based fundraising platform. Our solution helps organizations raise funds fast. We deliver made-to-order delicious popcorn direct to supporters through an ecommerce platform. We’re 220 employees strong and growing.
At our Burr Ridge location, we make Double Good’s delicious popcorn using a JIT (Just-In-Time) approach, rarely having more than 2 days of finished good inventory on hand. This allows us to provide the freshest product to our customers and makes adaptability and desire to learn important on our team.
When cooking, our Operators use a variety of machines (CMD kettles) and manual processes to pop, flavor, or add caramel or chocolate to our popcorn. From there, our Operators transport the finished popcorn to our Matrix packaging machines to create the final bagged product. As an Operator, you initially focus on one specialty but growth and potential promotion in our organization comes through learning multiple stations and being willing to be both a Cook and an Operator.
This role is onsite at our Burr Ridge location.
