OUR MISSION

At Bloom Bakery, artisan-crafted baked goods are enriched with opportunity, allowing individuals to find meaningful employment and a path to self-sufficiency. Owned by Towards Employment, Bloom Bakery employs individuals who face barriers in a steady job, providing them with training and a promising career in culinary arts.

Prepare

We prepare individuals who face barriers to employment for a career in culinary arts, providing them with training and a path to self-sufficiency.

Produce

We produce exceptional artisan-crafted baked goods, deli sandwiches, salads, and soups, using the freshest ingredients.

Prosper

All of our efforts go toward creating meaningful individual career opportunities beyond Bloom so the Greater Cleveland community can prosper.

In baking, bloom is the golden brown colors of the crust of well-baked bread. It also represents the ultimate goal we have for our employees: to blossom and to thrive. Bloom employees' training and experience provides the "bloom" on their resume -- a recognizable symbol that they have met the standards of production and customer service that the baking industry requires.
