First Stop Bake Shop owners Michael and Mary Jenniches opened their bake shop in early January 2015. Having worked in various 5 star hotels and exclusive private dining and country clubs, throughout their extensive careers, their vision is to strive to work with local purveyors & businesses alike to support the community and to aim for consistency, offering only the freshest baked goods and daily food specials. This has since become their credo.
The micro bakeshop is a classic "Mom and Pop" in the truest sense of the term. Michael, an award winning professional Pastry Chef and a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park New York does all of the baking and cooking. He has over 29 years experience in the art of pastry and will create each item by hand. With a solid foundation for all the basic cooking techniques he learned at the culinary college, his savory hot and cold food daily specials are simply outstanding when available.
Mary has experience covering 31 years in the hospitality industry in various management positions. She operates the retail space with a warm smile providing heart felt service.
At First Stop Bakeshop , the Riverbends first true Artisan microbakery, product is baked & prepared daily in our small kitchen. We use only real ingredients, the finest quality possible. First Stop never has and never will use any preservatives or additives in any of their products. The same can't be said for many of the corporate bakery chains.
In order to keep quality at its peak, it is our goal to sell out of pastries and desserts daily. Therefore we only try and produce what we think we will need in a given day (small batch). We hope our customers understand that their craft is an art form and not rushed or prepared well in advance. They vary the items presented on product availability and time involved.
A 48 hour policy for all catering/orders is expected and we ask that all orders be picked up after noon each day if possible. If for some reason you are unable to pick up after noon, we would be happy to work out other arrangements that work best for you.
First Stop Bake Shop is closed both Sunday and Monday. In the event you need catering on a Tuesday or Wednesday, the most efficient way to catch them is to send an email or facebook message and it will be received and responded to promptly, provided one of them has their smart phone fully charged :)
