Gluten-free bakery opens in Dunwoody

DUNWOODY, Ga. -- The Dunwoody Chamber of Commerce recently celebrated the opening of a brand new business -- Dunwoody Bakery, an organic and gluten-free bake shop.

Members of the Chamber and the Dunwoody City Council joined bakery owner Jill Baker-Lesperance for a ribbon cutting ceremony on July 17.

Baker-Lesperance left a career in marketing to pursue her love for baking full-time in 2008. Her husband Scott and daughter Audrey help her bake. (Audrey loves to say that baking comes naturally to her, as her middle name is Baker!)

The new Dunwoody Bakery also has a section called the Be Nice Shoppe, which can be rented out for group events and meetings. Local artisans are also invited to display their wares in the shoppe; on the day of the ribbon cutting, it featured such items as soap, pillows and dog treats.

Dunwoody Bakery is located at 2492 Mt. Vernon Road. Hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. On Tuesdays, all items are 10% off for customers and 15% off for seniors.
