Kari Kirchgessner, co-owner of Sweet Girlz Bakery on North Third Street, explains how the shop was born:
"We started in 2011 as a result of a layoff of my previous position and it just started as a way to get back on my feet and not have to go back to school and get more in debt. I was making cake pops at home, and jam, and decided to take that commercially and see if it could work and if we could make money with it and it just kind of all happened."
"What did it feel like after the layoff and as you were opening up the bakery?"
"Excitement, nervousness, stress…"
"Why should people come to Sweet Girlz and not a supermarket bakery?"
"Because we're fresh, from scratch, and everything is baked on the premises. From *complete* scratch: no box mixes, no box icings and whatever is made here is made to order, except what's in the case on a daily basis. You're supporting local, you're supporting local families, you're supporting local business owners, and we all work together."
