Hello! My name is Gabriele Barnhizer, and I own and operate Bake Me Treats with my husband, Adam. We love what we do and are so excited to be a part of the small business scene here in Youngstown, Ohio.
I have dreamed of opening a bakery here in Poland since I fell in love with baking in grade school. My dream was realized in 2015 when I started BMT, but I didn’t do it alone. I have been so lucky to have tremendous support from my family, especially my parents. I am forever grateful to them for believing in my vision.
Both Adam and I have culinary backgrounds and are absolutely in love with food. Bake Me Treats actually brought us together when Adam began frequently coming in for “coffee” soon after we opened. Adam finally asked me out after a few months of over-caffeinating, and the rest is history!
Today, Bake Me Treats is our combined effort. Adam and I are passionate about creating quality pastries, cakes, and breakfast. (on Saturdays only – for now) We are so lucky to have a talented team that is dedicated to our very important goal… creating great food and delicious TREATS.
Every day, we are striving to perfect what we do at Bake Me Treats and dream of franchising throughout the U.S.
