About Us

Our Story
When we started our business 14 years ago we were a small wholesale baking company in Santa Barbara, working out of a 350 square foot facility with one employee. We made a commitment from the very beginning that we would bake products of the highest possible quality using the best ingredients that we could find. Our special chocolate comes from Belgium and our lemon essence is imported from Germany.

We established ourselves quickly with our superior quality and personalized customer service. We grew rapidly and today we operate from a 2,500 square foot facility serving more than 300 active local retail customers. During our 14 years of operation, our 1 employee has grown to 40, and our hours of operation have expanded from 5 hours a day to 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our original delivery car was the owner's family car - now replaced by 7 delivery trucks and vans.

Our product selection has grown from our initial 2 products to our current list of over 240 products, ranging from Muffins, Scones, Croissants, Danishes, Lemon Bars, Pecan Bars, Cookies, brownies, Walnut Streusel coffee bread, low-fat carrot zucchini coffee bread, specialty Rolls, Pretzels, Pretzel sticks, Biscotti, Pies, cheese cakes, and Quiches. For our web site customers, we have selected only the products that we feel will retain their freshness and tolerate the ordeal of shipping.
