Bears Dough – Not Just For Vegans!

Tell us about your food and how you got into becoming a food vendor:

After having a premature child and going through my own weight loss journey, I changed much of my diet and began creating alternative options for my favourite treats. Additionally, after teaching for 3 years, I decided to leave my job to pursue my dream of becoming a woman in business. Knowing only that I had to follow my soul, yet with minimal ideas, I had an accidental, yet successful first run of making vegan doughnuts (and about 1000 fails shortly after that lol). It was shortly after, I decided to put in the work, self teach and pursue this path.

And so Bears Dough was born! Bears Dough has inspired me to provide a product which respects the element of choice and one which the majority can enjoy!
