Business and Marketing Consulting for Bakery Owners

The Sugar Sisters have been around the block (the "Bakery" block) and we know a thing or two about the bakery business.  Enough to start and grow from a farmer's market stand to a well regarded bakery that also caters weddings and events.  We've also been pretty fortunate to meet some pretty great people through our business, including:

Barbara Corcoran

Donnie Wahlberg

Jenny McCarthy

Henry Winkler

Greg Louganis

Ed Asner

. . .to name a few. 

It started when other business owners began to call us after we won the contest sponsored by Barbara Corcoran, wanting to know how we did that.  We even got asked to speak about it at events.  Then we realized:  Most people go to pastry school not business school, or they're following a passion to own a bakery.  But when you open a bakery you are opening a BUSINESS and there's certain things you need to do to grow and scale your business so you can stay in business. 

We actually did take business training.  We also have experience managing a restaurant and have also owned and operated other businesses.  While you can definitely learn all you need to on your own when you open a bakery---do you have time to research everything you need to know???  If you don't have time, and you need help, hiring a bakery consultant is the best thing to do.  Moreover, the bakery business is competitive but we are different!  We have always believed in lifting a sister up, not beating her down.  We admire the bakers who consider collaboration over competition.  We are here to help!

If your bakery needs help with any of the following, just call the Sugar Sisters and we would love to help you succeed!  We offer consulting and coaching in a variety of programs to fit your budget and need.
