Bakeworks is a new San Francisco based business whose overall goal is to provide training for the homeless and people with disabilities so that they can get jobs. They strive to use as much local ingredients and sustainable practices as possible in their business.
We want a business that will be able to sustain itself without investment from the government or private funders that operates successfully as a business, but then that money gets returned into funding our training program and creating employment opportunities for people who have disabilities or are homeless.
We are not hoping to make a million dollars or turn it into a franchise. Return to us is that the business is economically sound and meets all its expenses while also being able to provide the employment that we are looking for and provide the training that we are looking for.
It’s less about the dollar amount more about the social benefits.
