Bakery back in business

Woroby carries Crows Nest breads, and a complete line of bakery items, including cookies, squares, and specialty breads

Emma Woroby recently reopened Crows Nest Bakery in Keremeos

Emma Woroby recently found herself a new home in the Similkameen.

The former Winnipeg resident is also the new manager of Crows Nest Bakery, located at 610 Seventh Avenue in Keremeos.

“I love it here – this is home,” she said of the valley.

Woroby opened the bakery Friday, December 6, just in time for Keremeos Christmas Light Up.

Her appearance  in the main business block is a welcome event, as the village appears to rebuilding business lost to the last four years of slow economic conditions.

Woroby moved to the Olalla area at the end of August. Over the past few months, she got to know bakery owners Olaf and Sacha Heinecke, and through them, became interested in taking over operation of the bakery, which had been closed for the past two years.

“I have previous restaurant experience,” she said, and I worked the kitchen in a school cafeteria and a curling rink.

I decided that I was okay with being a business owner and the bakery was a good fit, because cooking and baking are passions of mine.”

Woroby carries Crows Nest breads, and  a complete line of bakery items, including cookies, squares, and specialty breads. The bakery will also serve a breakfast special in addition to having breakfast wraps, and a daily lunch soup and sandwich special.

“I hope to have cinammon buns soon, as well as specialty coffees and lattes,” she said, adding that regular coffees and teas are now available. Woroby is also going to look into the possibility of producing low sugar items, as she has had some demand for such baked goods already.

Crows Nest Bakery is open from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. Woroby said she will extend her hours to begin at 7 a.m., should customer traffic be apparent.
