Oompa Loompas

So here’s some info about the Mucking Afazing people who work at Charly’s Bakery:
– We have 25 awesome staff members, most of whom have been working for us for between 5-20 years!
– We used to have a night shift, but in 2017 we decided to bring the all our Oompa Loompas back together into one day shift.
– Almost all of our Oompa Loompas have been trained in-house and have come to us with no previous baking or service-industry training.
– Some of our Oompa Loompas are related to each other – we have three main family groups, wow!

We call ourselves “the Rainbow Bakery” as we are a proud and happy mix of so many different nations. We have Xhosa, Tswana, Sotho, Portuguese Angolan, Jews, Christians and Catholics, and we live and work happily together.
