Rachelle Star founded Scarlet’s Bakery in late 2015.

“To see about 150 (people) show up to support this just warms my heart,” founder and executive director Rachelle Star said. “It’s just so exciting that three years into this, we’re getting that much more support and I’m so thankful for that.”

In the past three years, Scarlet’s Bakery has helped 25 women and 10 more jobs were created at the new location.

Her first location is in Shelby Park.
