The business of making people happy

Because we make cakes & pies, most people think we are in the baking business. This is only partly true because the business we are really in is the business of making people happy.

From time to time we have jobs available in our bakery, administration and retail shops. The primary thing we look for in all of the people that we employ is a set of common values, which are as follows:

  • Caring and Passionate;
  • Grateful & Honest;
