Our regular customers may have noticed some new (and decidedly pleasant) faces in SBC this summer. All three women live in the Winter Hill neighborhood. The lovely Laura has been with SBC since April. She is an animal-lover and a contributor to some of SBC's best flavor profiles. Piper studied Culinary Arts/FSM at Johnson & Wales University and refined her skills at some local culinary hot-spots before joining SBC in June. Piper manages the bakery, has significantly improved our efficiency, and is a creative-force in our recipe development. The newest face is Caitlyn, a part-time bakery assistant (her passion), while also working as a full-time business analyst for Oracle. Caitlyn has used her technical skills to bring SBC into the 21st century.
SBC continues to experience the pleasure (and growing pains) of a rapidly expanding business. We’ve been ramping up production in the past few weeks to keep up with the demand of both retail and our wholesale accounts, while carefully maintaining our characteristic small-batch quality. In addition, we recently expanded into pastries which are supplied daily to the café at Winter Hill Brewing and sold in our retail space Saturday mornings.
You’ve probably noticed some new faces in the shop, including the smiling faces of Melanie and Laura. We’re looking to expand further as new wholesale requests and partnering opportunities develop. Please email if you have some baking experience and are interested in joining SBC for some part-time fun!
SBC is humbled by the enthusiasm and support poring in from the neighborhood and from all our Somerville- and Boston-area customers. It seems demand for fresh organic artisanal bread is high, and SBC has been responding with bigger and bigger batches each day. And yet, we keep selling out early! (Not that we're complaining.) We're planning to expand our retail hours soon to include Friday evening. And we promise to keep baking more (if you promising to keep visiting!)
Cheers, from your local baker.
SBC is excited to welcome another new upstart to the neighborhood this spring -- Winter Hill Brewing. What more could you ask for -- fresh artisan bread and craft beer, at one destination? SBC is proud to be supplying the new brewery with its bread products. Follow @WinterHillBrew as they move closer to opening day!
