Meet Who's Baking: Ibzan Olivan

Meet Who's Baking: Ibzan Olivan

At Bobo's, our employees are our family. From our office staff to our bakery employees, everyone plays a role in making sure we create the most delicious oat treats possible. We're kicking off our new monthly feature - 'Meet Who's Baking' - with one of our beloved bakers -  Ibzan Olivan. 

How long have you been at Bobo's and what is your role?

I've been here for 2 years and my job title is the Quality Assurance Technician. I make sure that every employee we have is baking our bars the 'right way.' 


What does your day-to-day look like? 

Everyday, I'm at the Bobo's Bakery at 5am, sharp. One of the first things that I do is make sure that everyone in production is wearing a hairnet and beard net (if necessary) and following the Bobo's GMPs. I also do testing for every flavor that is run during the day to make sure they're gluten-free. This makes it to where we make the best tasting bars possible.

What are your favorite aspects of your job? 

It definitely makes me feel responsible and I love being able to make sure everyone is following the rules so that we don't make any mistakes. 

    Where are you from? 

    I was born in Guadalajara, Mexico in a small town called Hermosa Provincia and I currently live in Boulder, Colorado. 

    What do you do when you're not at work? 

    I love to explore new places with my 4-year-old son who loves to go out and travel. 

    Tell us a fun fact about you. 

    I love to sing and 4 years ago I auditioned for a tv show and I went to the next round. I also do not like snow. 

    Favorite color? (We have to ask)
