In 2016, she was ready for retirement and she passed her dream on to Karen and the Fry family. Karen spent 25 years in marketing before deciding to pursue her own dream of owning a bakery. She has been gluten free for over 40 years and been baking since she was old enough to turn on the oven, but the idea for a bakery really got its start when her family started making gluten free baked goods for school events. All those years of experimenting with gluten free baking paid off when people starting asking where they could buy her cookies. Her children helped her open a home based business but it quickly became apparent they needed a bigger space. When Karen met Azar, she knew that adding her recipes to Azar’s and expanding Dream Bakery to offer even more specialty items would be a winning combination. We hope you agree!
