BIG Changes, Little Bakery

We are growing and expanding!

Nothing made me more nervous than getting the big equipment up on the truck.

We’ve been so blessed to be in the gourmet fortune cookie baking business 24 years! During that time, our bakery has moved twice, expanded 4 times and we are continuously innovating and changing. Today, our little family owned business is moving from the west side of Indianapolis to the East side of Indianapolis. And let me tell you, it’s definitely more of an undertaking than you think.

Lets face it, no matter what you are moving or how far, it’s a hassle. Things get broken, you pack it up just to unpack it a few days later at a new place. But when we move our homes, we don’t have to worry about specialized ovens that weigh a ton!

At least when you move a house, it doesn't require a forklift.

A wall had to be removed to be able to remove the ovens from our old bakery.

Our move involved taking down a wall to be able to remove our ovens, forklifts, a crane, and a giant flatbed truck, and yes, things broke and went wrong. Our ovens, mixers and cookie wrappers got loaded up and moved across town with no trouble at all. But when they arrived at our new 8,000 square foot facility, the door to our bakery wasn’t big enough to fit the machines through!

The doors had to be removed and the brand new wall cut out to fit the ovens in.

So there we are on moving day, having to cut up our brand new bakery wall… removing the doors to our brand new bakery and cutting out a section of the wall. At least that was the only major thing that went wrong with our move. Our electrician and contractors were on hand to hook up the gas lines and electric. We were only shut down for 2 days, and the new space allows for us to have a retail showroom here in Indianapolis, IN. It’s been an exciting journey! Thank you for growing with us and helping us continue to be the tastiest fortune cookie innovator!
