Kathy Leskow was a stay-at-home mom looking for something to do. She didn’t know it would turn into a cookie empire.
She started off baking cookies in her kitchen and selling them at her local farmers’ market. But that wasn’t enough, so she expanded to a few more markets. Soon her oven couldn’t keep up with the new demand, so she bought a commercial oven. Before she knew it, Kathy was running a fully-functional, health board-certified bakery out of her basement, with a dozen staff, and stalls at farmers’ markets across the province.
It wasn’t long before the bakery moved again: Kathy secured a permanent home for Confetti Sweets, including a storefront - no longer any need to wait for market day to get a fix.
Now you can make these terrific cookies at home, with pre-mixed ingredients or using her frozen Take 'n Bake dough. Every day is a great day for cookies!
We are food companies. Not companies who make food. Passionate food producers deserve to be connected with people who want their products. By joining forces local food companies can make it easier for customers to get the food they want, when and where they want it. That's why Uproot Food Collective exists.
