Tony’s Chocolonely, a Dutch sweets company, has some job openings that will likely be of interest to chocolate lovers around the country. The brand recently announced that it is currently looking for people to fill a trio of positions as “Chocotruck” drivers.
As you may have guessed, the job, which began accepting applications last month, entails driving across the country in a truck loaded with chocolate as part of the international label’s first-ever Chocotruck Tour across 10 cities, beginning at SXSW in Austin. The Chocotruck Captain and two Choco Copilots will “spread chocolatey goodness while helping Tony’s educate consumers about inequalities in the cocoa industry,” which is something Tony’s Chocolonely exists to combat, according to a press release.
“Maybe I’m biased, but these are the best jobs ever. I mean … getting paid to go on a road trip in an epic Chocotruck with the goal of making the world a better place? Yes, please,” said Tony’s Chocolonely U.S. marketing manager Dena White.”We’re very crazy about chocolate and we want to share the fun with choco fans across the country.”
In addition to Austin, the Chocotruck also has plans to make stops in Los Angeles, Seattle and Chicago.
While perks of the job include “endless amounts of chocolate on the tour, very competitive salary, monthly massages, weekly yoga, generous per diems and accommodations,” White insists the role is an important one. “We’re very serious about our mission. Everything we do is to achieve a single goal: to make all chocolate worldwide 100 percent slave free,” she added. “The Chocotruck is our way of taking our mission on the road and sharing our story with as many new friends as we can.”
Interested parties may be intrigued to know that all you need to get behind the wheel of a Chocotruck is to be 21 and over and in possession of a valid driver’s license. A “passion for chocolate and people, a fun-loving spirit and a sense for adventure” might just help put you over the edge, per the press release.
Applications for this sweets-centric position won’t be accepted after Tuesday, February 12, so act quickly if your interest has been piqued!
