Here is a great article about the success of Avalon Bakery. It also is rather positive about the city. Happy Reading.

Congrats to Jackie & Ann! They deserve this great attention.
Quality product, and a quality way of life for their employees. Mix in an undying dedication to the City and that's Avalon.

Wow, great article. I love the Avalon. I hope they can hold it together during their move a few blocks over. My family stops by each week for their delicious baked goods.
Unfortunately mass marketing conditions consumers into seeking picture perfect products, making handmade goods look...suspicious.
Keeping the product consistent in shape/size is not important - it's the quality of the product that counts. The problem is that customers need to be re-educated that a slightly mishapen cinnabun doesn't make it taste bad. That's why I love the Detroit Eastern Market - the produce isn't Meijer's consistent in size and shape, but it is 10 times fresher (and cheaper).
See yah at the Avalon!
