Rachel Wyman, founder of Montclair Bread Co. and Gunkin' Doughnuts

Published on: 23 February 2022

When Rachel Wyman sees a need, she does what it takes to meet it, whether it's making life easier for her regulars, motivating local runners with the promise of fresh doughnuts or feeding workers being ignored by the government.  And if the problem is many times larger than anticipated, so be it.

In this episode, Mark and Rachel talk about her early days baking at Bread Alone and Amy's Bread, embracing being known as the 'doughnut lady', the changing face of baking during Covid, and the thrill of opening her second location in New Paltz, NY.
