Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have a bakery storefront? Where can I find your baked goods?2023-05-05T13:11:08-04:00

No, we currently rent hours in a shared commercial kitchen, which is the most affordable option for us but doesn’t have a storefront. All of our baked goods are made for markets and events, plus wholesale and special orders. You can find all of our locations on our LOCATIONS page.

Why are you a nonprofit?2023-05-05T13:06:34-04:00

We are a nonprofit because our mission, which is focused on workforce development with individuals who have intellectual and developmental disabilities, requires more resources, such as instructors and support staff.

Our desire is to empower people, businesses, and communities to achieve their fullest potential through inclusive work environments. Our workforce development program relies on donations as well as revenue. This means while we need money to operate and produce goods – all of our profits, as well as donations – are dedicated to a workforce development program for the people we serve.

How many employees do you expect to hire in the Café?2023-05-05T13:06:11-04:00

Our current plan is to hire a General Manager, a Program Manager, and shift managers who are not special needs adults. Our goal is to hire at least 30 individuals who live with intellectual and developmental disabilities who will work between 6 – 24 hours per week.
