Restaurants and food are ingrained in her life and upbringing. Her love for food will soon include not just pizza, but baked goods.

Renovations on the downtown bakery are almost finished. The process has been long and arduous according to Leeseberg. The final phase of renovation has involved several bouts with the health department about flooring and other issues. Currently sinks are being added to the establishment along with new flooring in the baking area and a ventilation hood.

The culinary entrepreneur has been met with much excitement from the community about her bakery.

"I quit giving out dates," said Leeseberg when asked about the exact date of the grand opening. She hopes that everything will be finished within the next month and the bakery will open sometime in February 2019.

Leeseberg has a definitive passion for baking and knows the food industry well. She took over Larry's Family Pizza in 1995.
