I have been doing a lot of thinking about the type of establishment that I would love to own one day.
One of my favorite bakeries is called, ‘Sugar Bakeshop’ in Charleston, S.C.
I LOVE the simplicity of their website, www.sugarbake.com. It is very easy to navigate. The pictures are great and the colors are wonderful.
The bakery has a very small storefront. There is no room for eating in…unless you want to have your goodies inside their walled garden.
I love their chalkboard menu and old-fashioned cake stands and cookie jars. I am also a big fan of their antique wooden showcase.
After visiting their establishment, I sent an e-mail to their company address to tell them how much I enjoyed the bakery….and ask for any advice in opening my own establishment. No reply, but I am going to try again. One day I hope to own an establishment with a similar look and feel. I promise, however, to reply to everyone, even if only to say ‘thank you’ to those people who take the time to e-mail their positive experiences. (oh…one day I hope I have this opportunity)
