Kevin Scollo, baker and owner of Independent Baking Co. in Athens, Georgia

Published on: 14 July 2021

Kevin Scollo worked in restaurants through college until succumbing to the baking bug. After several years working in restaurants and bakeries in New York and Ohio, he moved back to Georgia and took over Independent Baking Co. in February, 2020, just before everything turned upside down.

In this episode, Mark and Kevin talk about his early days in music and food, taking over from the legendary Thom Leonard, working through the pandemic, and how he is slowly putting his own stamp on the bakery.
