Rustic Bakery was created to address the growing artisan cheese market in the United States. Seeing there were no handmade artisan crackers available to complement the increasingly sophisticated cheeses being produced, Rustic Bakery founders, Carol LeValley and her husband, decided to develop a line of organic flat breads in 2005.
Carol had always had a love for baking and switched gears from a long career in fashion to make and sell her fabulous flat breads. She found a mentor in the local cheese business, bought a commercial kitchen and dove in head first. They soon opened several Rustic Bakery cafes to connect with their fans and offer a broad selection of delicious organic baked goods and handmade artisan meals made with local ingredients.
