Kathleen and Hannah might not wear a uniform but they have felt the cost of military service. Kathleen and Hannah have had to develop strength and resilience as military wives raising a combined total of 7 children, often needing to parent alone when their husbands are called away. When Covid 19 lockdowns started in 2020 both of their husbands were away on duty and while they navigated that time alone, their business Cup & Cake was born. They’ve learned grit and determination the hard way, and they have brought those qualities into the business that launched 8 short months ago. They began by baking after hours in the Bridge Street Mission kitchen but soon realized they needed their own space. In a crazy turn of events they have purchased Kregers Bakery and Deli, a legacy bakery in town, and now are planning to combine the timeless bakery with their own innovative style. There is the old saying “out with old and in with the new”, but they are thinking more along the lines of “respect the old and add in some new.” Both are excited to preserve the great things about a 59-year-old business while offering desserts that are uniquely their own. Their strategy is to learn and observe before making any big changes, and of course little by little Cup&Cake and Kreger’s Bakery will merge and become a place that offers both traditional nostalgic bakery items along with new innovative flavors and design.
