The owners of Whey Better Bakery have opened their first brick and mortar location in Genoa Township, serving a Whey and No Whey menu.
“We wanted to have a little something for everyone” said Keri Hayes, who owns the business with her husband, Greg Hayes. “We offer high protein treats as well as the fully indulgent desserts like our giant 6-ounce cookies”.
The popularity of the 6-ounce cookies on social media caught the eye of a New York City cookie blogger who gave the company rave reviews.
Whey Better Bakery offers free local delivery in corrugated boxes of their cookies every Friday, and they also ship their cookies nation wide. You can also find their food trailer on Saturday’s at the Brighton Farmers Market.
Whey Better Bakery offers a variety of cookies, muffins, edible (and bakeable) cookie dough, their famous peanut butter cups, and they are now introducing dairy free and vegan friendly soft serve ice cream. Starting Friday, Aug. 21, 2020, they will begin serving protein shakes.
The Brighton couple, both certified fitness trainers, started the business to complement their personal training business.
“We started making healthy treats for ourselves and clients would ask if we could bake for them as well,” Hayes said. “That’s how the whole business started and we have just been steadily growing over the past couple of years.”
The bakery is mainly a wholesale business, but it decided to open its doors for limited hours during the week for walk-in service. Located at 5584 E. Grand River Ave. in Genoa Township, near the Middletown Market, the bakery has a variety of fresh baked goods every day with a good mix of Whey and No Whey products. Customers can place orders on the website for pick up and delivery as well.
