Community Foundation Of The Brazos Valley Receives A Check From The Sale Of A Bryan Business

The Community Foundation of the Brazos Valley has received a check from the sale of a Bryan business that will start a new endowment fund.

Denise Fries announced in May that half of the proceeds of the sale of Taylor Made Gluten Free Bakery was establishing Taylor’s Fund for Celiac Disease Initiatives. Fries opened the bakery eight years ago when her daughter Taylor was diagnosed with Celiac disease, which requires a lifelong gluten free diet.

The other half of the proceeds are going to the bakery’s existing employees.

Community Foundation president Patricia Gerling says the exact amount of the check was pending at the time of the presentation due to the nature of the sale.

The new owner of the bakery, Isabel McPartlin, says she will retain all the existing employees.

McPartlin also announced the addition of the opening of Renegade Bakery & Culinary Studio, which will make commercial kitchen space available to other food entrepreneurs.

McPartlin says what she describes as an “entrepreneurial incubator” will allow food trucks, food vendors, bakers and charities the rental access to a licensed commercial kitchen.
