If you aren't hungry, you are about to be with my newest feature in the Support Local Businesses Section of The Orlando Millennial! If you've been following my Instagram over the past few months, then you've probably seen pictures of some of these delectable treats that are made right in the Horizon West area of Central Florida! Well, now it is time to learn more about the amazing cottage bakery that makes these amazing pastries - Atlas Bakehouse!
What is the name of your business?
What type of business is it - what do you offer?
We are a home-based cottage bakery in Winter Garden, Florida, with a passion for small-batch, hand-crafted baked goods and pastries.
How long has Atlas Bakehouse been around?
We began working on our concept in August 2020 and began baking in October 2020, and it has been incredible to see how much our little cottage bakery has grown since then.
What made you decide to create a business in your home?
In 2016, we moved back home to Central Florida to begin our family, and when I left the workforce in June 2020 to stay home with our two children, I decided to take a chance on starting a home-based cottage bakery to put my baking passion and skills into practice. The bakery has been an incredible blessing to our family – allowing me to stay home with our two children while doing something that I absolutely love on a flexible schedule.
What has been your favorite part about starting this business?
Seeing the joy that hand-made baked goods and pastries brings to our family, our friends, our neighbors, and our customers has truly been a silver lining of this difficult past year and makes the long bake nights worth it. We enjoy trying new spins on classic baked goods and incorporate seasonal fruits or flavors – one of the greatest compliments we have received from customers is how our pastries and croissants remind them of those in Paris.
Do you think you will continue this business in your home or do you ever think about opening up a brick and mortar shop in the future?
For the near future, we plan to remain a home-based bakery, but we hope to one day move into a commercial production kitchen and eventually a brick and mortar shop as our kids grow. We are operating much more efficiently and quickly than during those first few weeks, which has allowed us to bake more goods and meet ever-growing customer demand while still operating out of our home.
Where can we find out more on how to order or what you are offering for the week?
