Like SOMA’s Root Cafe, which has won a couple of awards for its food and business model (see here and here), Community Bakery is being highlighted this month by Office Depot in its Small Business Spotlight section on its webpage.
Here’s what Office Depot has to say about the bakery at 1200 Main St.:
In Little Rock, Arkansas, Community Bakery has become a gathering ground for residents of all ages, with a reputation for having food as good as its service. With a motto of “Tradition Moving Forward”, the bakery has been able to keep its eye on the future while staying true to its roots of being simple, accessible and focused on high quality. Joe Fox has owned the bakery for 30 years, and still operates the counter and greets customers as much as he can. “I’m a real hands-on person, and I like working with equipment. I like technology,” he said. “(And) I think of my job as being one of supporting all the staff.” Watch the staff in action and see how all the pieces fit to deliver quality service every day.
