It is with regret that I need to inform you that Simona’s Gluten-free Baked Goods closed its doors at the end of November 2013. It has been a wonderful experience and I want to thank each, and every one of you for your support and your kind words. You made this endeavor of mine a great success: from the small coffee house, to the big supermarket chain; from the 2 year old to the 82 year old, all of you have contributed to the growth of this business. We shared stories, you made me part of your celebrations, from birthday to wedding, to retirement parties. And I will always be grateful. At the beginning of this adventure someone told me: I hope you are ready to be successful… I thought, though, that it would take me longer to get there, and that I would still have time for my growing family. I was wrong. And at this point my family needs my presence more than I have been able to give in these past two years.
For a moment I hoped that some other “crazy” person would be willing to take over this jewel of mine, and continue to serve you all. But it didn’t work out, so now I need to end my operations.
I will have dinner with my family, help my kids with their homework, and spend the Holidays with them. But I will miss my baking, your kind words, your generous outpour of compliments, and, undoubtedly, I will miss bringing more flavor into your life.
