Isaacs bakery has been a part of Bainbridge for a very long time. In fact, it is the oldest business still operating here today. Isaacs is a small bakery located on the square that has been loved by many people for many years. Jenny Oldaker, new owner, bought the business a little over a year ago.
Jenny grew up in New York, where she learned to bake at a young age, probably around 7. She left The Big Apple when she was 18 years old and has spent the rest of her time here in Bainbridge, where she has raised her two children. Jenny Oldaker teaches cooking classes at Bainbridge High School and has coached soccer and cross country for many years. The classroom is very different from the bakery and the connection with her former students are strong. She explains that the change was hard, but she wanted to keep everything to same, but she did put her own spin on the bakery. For instance, when you walk into the bakery, all you see is that pop of hot pink. The employees say that if you know Mrs. Jenny, then you know that fits her personality perfectly. She is also very confident in every employee she has. Mrs. Jenny explained to us in our in-depth interview that her workers consists of people who have worked there before or people who she has taught so they already know the basics of cooking. Jenny talks about how important this business is to her and how her love for baking has grown. She is ready to make more memories and to relive some old ones.
Not only does Isaacs have the best baked goods in town, they also have a wide variety of delicious sandwiches, soups, salads, and their most famous chicken ‘n dumplings. They didn’t want to change anything on the menu from 88 years ago, but they did add more menu items. - Alyson Mathews, Flint Media, Sowega Live
