Many think that the bakery began with Bill and Kathy Young, which it did. But, what they
don’t know is baking started in each of their families, years before the creation of Grandma’s Country Bake Shoppe. Long before they met, Kathy and Bill shared their love of baking with their grandmothers. Of course, back then, true scratch baking was the only method – no bags or boxed mixes, nothing frozen, all made from scratch with fresh ingredients by hand.
