Ever since she was a little girl, Samantha was always baking, with her mom, grandma and even great grandma! She was born a baker. Every time she saw the joy on people’s faces when they tried her delicious sweet treats, she fell even more in love with baking. Her friends had always told her she needed to sell her goodies, but it wasn’t until she met me in 2015 that she did anything about it.
She was a marketing director at a fire pit company in 2014-2015, and I was a contract engineer that was working for the fire pit company to design an ignition system for one of their burners, and when we met, the rest was history. After tasting her cooking and baking, I decided that we needed to open up Baked5280 Catering Bakery in 2017! With my love and support, we set forth on a journey to bring her delicious baking to the world. All of Baked5280’s recipes are created by Samantha or passed down through her family.
In 2016, we adopted an Australian Cattle dog that was rescued from an Indian Reservation in New Mexico, and when we started the bakery we decided that we would donate a portion of sales to the animal shelter that we picked up our little Penny at. She is now best friends with our Mini-Dachshund Rudy, and now our little family is working hard to expand the business and bring its goodness to the world!
