B True Bakery was founded and is owned by Brady Braden. B True has been in business for 7 years and at GSM for 6. Brady makes the most wonderful, whole grain baked goods that you would never guess are full of healthy ingredients. Here's what Brady makes him tick:
"...After finishing French Pastry School, I opened B True Bakery to offer all-natural whole grain baked goods utilizing a shared kitchen space in Oak Park. I sold wholesale to coffee shops and specialty food stores and joined Farmers Markets.
I lost over 100 pounds in the last two decades and have been a Group Fitness Instructor at Chicago Athletic Clubs for over 10 years. It was actually the inspiration for starting B True Bakery. I significantly changed my diet to only all-natural, whole grain foods and began exercising. No one offered whole grain baked goods at that time and I decided to fill a void in the market. Voila!
I’ve always believed that anything worth doing will be hard work. If it was easy, everyone would own their own business. It is exciting to think of all the things I have learned over the years about being a business owner and even more exciting that I have the opportunity to share that knowledge with other new businesses by operating a shared kitchen space of my own.
The amazing diversity of Rogers Park is what really drew me to Glenwood Sunday Market. I’ve lived in Andersonville for almost 20 years and have always enjoyed the variety of the different neighborhoods in Chicago. It makes me really happy to be a supportive part of my community- to not only live in the city, but to also own a business and provide a unique product to the local residents."
Awesome, BTrue Bakery and Brady Braden!
