You’re probably seen their pastries around in various coffee shops or you’ve been to one of their locations. Not only does Ovenly makes the best pastries, but did you know they’re also super responsible? They have an open hiring policy and strive to hire previously incarcerated staff and people living in poverty. They offer insurance and leave and paid vacation. Who does that in the food service industry?
They call their way of conducting business ‘radical responsibility’ and it goes from hiring, to reducing carbon footprint, to using products that are local and organic whenever possible.
So if you’re able, swing by their bakery in Brooklyn at 154 Franklin St. in Greenpoint.
