MIDLAND, Michigan – “The exciting thing about Pizza Baker is that this is a story of business evolution. They have gone from doing private events with a mobile pizza oven, to public events and leveraging regularly-standing events like the Midland Area Farmers Market and Larkin Beer Garden to build a customer base. Now they have ultimately reached a point where they have enough of a following to launch into a brick and mortar operation, which is very exciting.”
Pizza Baker is unique in more ways than just its artisan pizza. They operate with a unique goal of providing employment to those in need. “We have a dual mission. The first part is to offer high-quality, artisan, wood-fired pizza. The second part is to offer gainful employment to individuals with disabilities,” says Jim Baker, owner of Pizza Baker.
