Winn Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Board Member Destiny Stroud interviewed owner Niki Etheridge of Pretty Baked to give you some interesting background information on her popular and everyday growing business. Here is what she had to say. A must-read!
“Cooking has always been my passion. As a child, my mother helped nurture this love, always allowing time to experiment in the kitchen. I began the first proper step in my journey in 2005 with a Cottage bakery out of my home. I baked on and off until 2012, then sadly hung up my apron. My dream in life was to own a restaurant or bakery, but the fear of doing that in a small town kept me from pursuing it. I started baking again in 2017, and it consumed me every waking moment of the weekend; and finally, I felt at peace again!
In May 2018, I decided to take the plunge, and we began the process of opening Pretty Baked! After our first opening that November on ‘Open House’ night, we’ve spent the last four years figuring out what works best for us. My favorite part of the job is coming up with new recipes; I love researching, watching shows, and coming up with a taste or theme to match the seasons! Our menu changes every few months to keep things exciting and provide our customers with a bit of local variety!
Now our newest venture is the expansion of Pretty Baked! We’ve purchased the old Bulk Oil Building with plans to have a 70-seat full-service restaurant and bar open sometime early to mid-2023. We cannot wait to have an even better menu, drinks, and brunch to offer! So stay tuned for Pretty Baked’s next tasty development!”
