Special Touch Bakery has a new place to call home.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held in Rochester on Tuesday. The brand new 20,000 square foot facility is now open on Mount Read Boulevard right next to Foodlink.
Special Touch Bakery began in 1982 in a small 700 square foot school kitchen. It was on the campus of Holy Childhood and provided training for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
"At Special Touch, a baker is a baker, it doesn't matter if they have disabilities," says Donna Dedee, Holy Childhood president and CEO. "They are bakers and they are coworkers and there's a lot of satisfaction occurring here every day."
Special Touch Bakery now employs 25 workers with and without disabilities working side-by-side. They have been creating those iconic pies for 35 years.
