Have you heard the news!?
My Just Desserts has gone through a lot of behind the scenes changes this week. If you are currently not in the "know," you will be now! MJD's owner, Ann Badasch, has decided to retire and pass the pie plate to our head baker Yvonne Campbell. While Ann will pop in from time to time and be involved with our Lincoln Dinners, she will surely be missed by all the staff. She was a one-of-a-kind boss that would help first-time job seekers by hiring them, and graciously re-hire former employees when they were in need. At any given point, in her 30 plus years in business, she has even employed family members - from her children to daughter-in-law to grandchildren. She will be missed by her loyal customers, that range from all over the region. Ann is not only widely-known for her chicken-salad sandwiches and pies, but also her chair caning store that started in the basement of the restaurant. Her customers come from far and wide, and she has built an extensive clientele.
July 2nd, 2018 was Yvonne's big day. Yvonne Campbell has worked at My Just Desserts since 2011 and became our head baker in 2013, with the retirement of our long-time baker Liz. She has worked extensively with Ann to make sure that My Just Desserts keeps the same great feel for the community, plus some added surprises in the future. Yvonne would like to extend her gratitude and said, "Thank you for a great first week and for all the support and encouragement from everyone. We are gearing up for Grand Opening in August, so watch our blog, social media or our newsletter for more information."
Just a reminder that My Just Desserts will be closed on Wednesday, July 4th in honor of Independence Day. Everyone have a fun and safe holiday. We will see you all for lunch on Thursday.
