Baby Cakes And Pies, Cookies Too

I Made It Here

Find out about the Hot Bread Kitchen Incubator Program and how Diana Scot-Sho, Incubator Program entrepreneur made it here, in New York City.

“The Hot Bread Kitchen Incubator Program affords me a low cost space in the community I do business in, I have support…”

Diana Scot-Sho, Founder, Baby Cakes And Pies, Cookies Too!

Business Need

For years, Diana Scot-Sho wanted to start her our business, baking home-made pies and treats. However, Diana did not have the wherewithal and support systems she needed to make a go of it-to launch and grow her own business.

Solution

Diana was accepted to the Hot Bread Kitchen Incubator Program at La Marqueta and founded Baby Cakes And Pies, Cookies Too! Hot Bread was able to locate and start their Program with the help of NYCEDC. NYCEDC assisted with the build-out of the space and was able to provide below-market rates. Diana was able to take advantage of these reduced rates to use the Hot Bread facilities, develop a business plan, and get professional business advice. Because of the Program and her entrepreneurial spirit, Baby Cakes has grown to the point where Diana is looking to hire a second baker and continues to grow her business in the community she loves.
