Between wholesale and personal retail, she guessed that they are baking around 100 to 150 loaves of bread per week.
“We’re just tiny, still,” Collins said.
But her husband is working about 10 to 18 hours to meet the demand.
“He recently just trusted me enough to make cookies,” she said with a laugh.
Aside from baking quality breads and pastries, Collins said they are also passionate about giving back to the community. She’s hoping to partner with Food for Friends and other charities in the metro area.
“It’s a rush,” she said. “I just love the feeling, the little bubbly feeling and the look on their faces.”
If you’re looking to support a good cause and indulge in some sweet treats, the business is hosting a fundraiser during the first part of August to help a friend who was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Collins said they will have a silent auction and give away free cheesecakes.
“Hopefully someone will volunteer to do some live music, too,” she said.
