Have a sweet day,
After taking a hiatus from writing the Three Brothers Bakery blog, I, Janice, am back behind the keyboard to write. I look forward to sharing many more of my personal stories and experiences once more here on this site.
This feels like an appropriate way to kick off the year because 2016 was not a particularly fun one for us, like I suspect it might not have been for you. It was all epitomized in having to deal with more water affecting our main bakery location at Braeswood – not an enjoyable experience to undergo once again – and a fire in our main freezer right before the December Hanukkah/Christmas holidays. But my cup is always half full, and we are looking at 2017 with optimism for many great things to come.
A big goal of mine in the coming year is to continue growing the coffee program that we rolled out last fall. This collaboration between Bobby and our roast master and coffee saucier, Jack Babin, is already off to a great start, and I see it as a new line of business for the bakery going forward as we hopefully move into wholesale. We are not ever going to give up our bakery roots, don’t worry – we envision it as a fun, refreshing complement to the sweet treats you have known and loved for so many years.
I am also focused on employee growth this year. It used to be that you had a single job that you did all the time, and no one ever moved around. Now, people come to Three Brothers Bakery to learn about the craft of baking from many different perspectives. One proud accomplishment of ours in 2016 was seeing Daisy Hall, who started at our Memorial location, graduate from culinary school. Also, I love seeing more women in the back of the bakery working production – there were not any when I started here. We now have a waiting list!
You’ll also see some more physical improvements around the Braeswood location. You may have noticed the stylish new wallpaper that we have added in recent months, and there is a lot more where that came from in the months to come – you’ll have to stop in to see for yourself.
And stay tuned for more information about an upcoming bake sale we will be hosting for a friend of the bakery who volunteers at the Souper Bowl of Caring. We want her to be successful because we want our community to be successful. I hope you will join myself and the bakery as we look to make 2017 a great year for everyone!
Have a sweet day,
Last month, we celebrated one year of business at our Memorial location and we could not be happier! We are so pleased with our decision to open this location in Memorial, I mean, what’s not to love? This neighborhood has proven to be such a supportive area with a nice mix of residential, medical and business populations, not to mention the shoppers! In our first year at this location on Kingsride, we have had the blessing of serving such a diversified area and have had the opportunity to meet so many great customers, which include both long-time and newfound fans. And let’s be honest, we couldn’t do what we love if it weren’t for each and everyone of YOU.
We could not be more proud to have found such an amazing group of employees who absolutely LOVE what they do! They are passionate about helping you create that perfect birthday cake for your family member or loved one.
Something that separates this particular location from our longstanding Braeswood location is our coffee bar! Let me tell you, the baristas at this location know how to mix up a mean coffee beverage. Sweet or straight, Iced or extra hot, flavored or plain – you name it, we can make it! Customers are welcome to take a break from their hectic day in our cozy lounge area with their coffee drink in hand.
Fan Kaitlyn tells us, “I LOVE this new location! I had never been to Three Brothers before. Now, I sometimes spend my lunch break getting cozy on one of those lounging chairs with my favorite magazine – and a iced raspberry mocha and black and white cookie, of course.”
Just to show you how much you fans mean to us – starting now through the end of this month we’ll be offering a sweet deal at our Memorial location.
When you purchase a dozen of a particular item (all items must be the same) we’ll include your 13th FREE to make a perfect Baker’s Dozen.
If you have yet to visit this location we encourage you to come by and start making some sweet memories on Memorial!
