Katie Ann Lambert, a native of Michigan, had been traveling across the country for eight years, from Colorado to Hawaii and after working for someone else, she decided she wanted her own. So Mitten Raised Bakery that once was an idea finally became reality. “My brother actually came up with the name. After going back and forth about it, I came back to where I was from so the name stuck,” said Lambert. Lambert bought the store last year and planned to open this past December but with a few hiccups hopes to open her store in mid March.
