Mandy Harper - Founder & CEO
Mandy always had an interest in nutrition and sustainability. Becoming a vegetarian at 11, then vegan at 13, Mandy spent more than half her life on the lookout for high quality products that fit her dietary restrictions and allergies. With a big sweet tooth and little to choose from, Mandy decided to take on the task of creating guilt-free goodies! It all started with a signature carrot cake that she made for friends and family. After hearing rave reviews, she thought she might be onto something. Continuing to make new recipes for cookies and cakes, she was encouraged by her growing number of fans to sell them. So she gathered up all of her gusto and dropped off samples at two local grocery stores. Now Wholesome Bakery has products all over the Bay Area and is continuing to grow!
With Mandy, are Sabrina Carreno the Bakery Director and Anna Schoenberger the Operations Manager.
