A future rises for gluten-free bakery after sale
HEATHER Newton may be closing the doors on her gluten-free bakery, but it won't be long until we see the business open again.
The gluten-free bakery, AarJess, has acquired new owners, who made the purchase after seeing a Facebook post by Heather regarding the closing.
Heather (pictured) said she couldn't be happier to see this outcome.
"It is exciting, I know the potential of this business and it can go in leaps and bounds," Heather said.
"When it was good I had ideas to franchise and go to bigger premises."
She opened the doors of the Berserker St business in May with a solid customer base giving her hope it would be a success.
"It went great guns for the first six weeks," Heather said.
Heather was disappointed to have to close up shop last week due to financial circumstances.
Heather, who is not gluten- free herself, wants to see the business re-open and give those suffering the allergy a chance to experience fresh baked goods.
Heather said the best part of the job was seeing kids faces light up, knowing they could eat anything in the bakery without suffering an allergic reaction.
The new business owners are looking forward to continuing to provide 100% gluten free products at a new location in the near future.
