Thank you for your interest in Puzzles Bakery & Café.
Believe it or not, we are contacted almost every single day with inquiries about the business. How did Puzzles Bakery & Café get started? Is Puzzles structured as a non-profit or for-profit entity? How can I start a similar business in my own community? Can we bring in a small group for a tour of your facilities? Will you speak to our students about potential job opportunities?
While we certainly don't have all the answers, we are dedicated to assisting like-minded people and organizations in creating meaningful employment opportunities for individuals with developmental disabilities. We are pleased to offer a 30 minute guided tour with Sara Mae Pratt, owner and founder of Puzzles Bakery & Café.
Please keep in mind that our facility is quite small, and that we are a working kitchen–– there are hot surfaces, sharp objects, busy employees at work, and food is actively being prepared for our customers. We will keep time spent in the kitchen to a minimum, and all participants in the tour must keep their hands to themselves.
You are welcome to come to the café before your tour or stay and visit afterward, and we highly encourage you to take a look at our menu and enjoy a bite to eat while you’re here.
As a small business owner, a new mother, and a busy member of the community, Sara Mae has made the decision to charge a nominal fee for her time. All funds go directly toward supporting the mission and vision of Puzzles Bakery & Café.
Talk to you soon!
