Helene Godin, Owner of By The Way Bakery, on switching careers, going gluten free and making the leap to multiple locations.

Published on: 20 February 2019

When Helene Godin left her law career, she dreamed of opening a cute bakery that served her local community in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York.  And she did that, at least for a little while.

By The Way Bakery now has four locations in New York and is in over 40 Whole Foods Markets.  In this episode, Mark and Helene talks about making the switch from the corporate life, getting started, then leaping to wider distribution.

Oh, and By The Way, everything Helene makes is gluten free, dairy free and kosher!
