Sisters Baking Company
Jamie Fender & Jennifer Norton
Tell us about your business.Sisters Baking Co. was started by sisters Jen Norton and Jamie Fender. Jen has a degree in nutrition and has always been passionate about good health. Jamie has a pastry degree and has always been a foodie. When Walnut Street Coffee mentioned they were looking for someone to make pastries, we started baking, making high quality pastries with pure ingredients; this has been the cornerstone of our success. As we made pastries, we made Rain City Crunch in our spare time and found that we were running out of time and energy. We stopped making pastries and spent our time making Rain City Crunch. Today, we sell across the country and are growing by the day. Our crew is a family and we feel SO blessed to be able to create jobs, work with and support amazing companies and produce a product that we feel good about. It’s been very important to us to use whole food ingredients with a label you can easily read. What is best for our families and our customers is best for our business.
What makes your business stand out?We make each batch by hand, crafting a truly aritisan product full of real food without fillers, additives or artificial preservatives. We have yet to see another product like it- other granola snacks may look like it, but the taste makes all the difference.
What's the best business advice you've received?Grandma Ethel says, "Hard work never killed anybody." When you do what you love and are passionate about it, is it still work? Well, yes, but we truly love good food!
