Katie Chaney

Owner & Proprietor

Katie Chaney was born and raised in Anderson, South Carolina. Katie's experience with different foodways, like Alsace-German and Texas-style "tex mex", as well as exposure to CPG food capitals in the Pacific Northwest, has colored her culinary conscious. Newly postpartum during the global pandemic of 2020, Katie started to re-think her career - leading her to step down from partnership in her own consulting agency, buy an abandoned general store, and create a bakery & mercantile concept for her local community in the Upstate of South Carolina.

Claudia Amezquita

Head of Culinary Operations


Claudia was born and raised in Colombia - the country, not our capital city! Claudia has been
alongside Katie since the beginning - when the store was just an idea. Now you can find Claudia leading kitchen efforts - which means she is usually covered in flour, fruit compote, and grinning ear to ear.
