21 Jan DABC Member Spotlight: Rachel Bites
Tell us about your business.
I strive to make fresh baked cookies for any occasion. I have a full menu of items available for weddings, birthday parties, baby showers, etc… Some favorites are our Chocolate Chip Biscotti, Italian Lemon Knots, Pineapple upside down Bites or our Pizzelles. I also specialize in custom designed iced sugar cookie Bites. These can be made to match the logo of your business or any theme you may be using for your event.
How did your business get started?
I started this business in 2016 wanting to follow a dream of opening my own bakery. I was blessed to grow up in an Italian family who loved to bake. Some of my best memories are in the kitchen with my grandparents learning how to make some of our favorite pastries and cookies. I want to be able to share those homemade treats with you. There is nothing better than seeing a person’s face when they are enjoying something you made. I want people to feel like they are sitting in my grandmother’s kitchen when they are eating one of our Bites. I also wanted to offer a product that you could enjoy without feeling guilty for eating a few…you guessed it…Bites!
What is it about your business that makes it unique?
All of my cookies are Bite sized so you won’t feel bad when you have more than one. Our best seller is our custom made Iced Sugar Cookie Bites. We can customize these to your event, theme, or even business logo. I also offer cookie decorating classes. In these classes I provide everything you need to decorate our sugar cookies so that you come out looking like a pro.
What do you see for your business in the future?
I am working towards opening up a RachelBites location in 2019.
Do you have any special events coming up that you would like to share?
I have a cookie decorating class on Feb. 7th from 6-8 at Sly Photography (get your tickets here)! Just in time to give a sweet gift to the one you love! I also offer seasonal Bite box options that give you a chance to try a variety of Bites from our menu.
Is there anything else you would like to add and share about your business?
Rachel Bites is a dream come true for me. I have met so many other wonderful people, businesses and fellow boss ladies that have helped me along the way. I really excited to see what 2019 has in store.
