Description of Business or Organization
Plume Bake Shop is a production bakery specializing in hyper-local, seasonal, and organic goods. We are also starting a community kitchen project, wherein we help to incubate start-up food businesses if they agree to: a) hire locally, b) source at least 50% locally, and c) volunteer staff hours at local non-profits. In addition, we focus on hiring veterans, and plan to start a VSAT program in the next three years.
