When Tara Black started Origin Bakery, she was adamant that her gluten free products had to look and taste as great as their wheat based counterparts and that the bakery would be warm and welcoming to everyone who came into the shop.  Her hard work has paid off as the original Origin is thriving and they've recently opened a second location.

In this episode, Mark and Tara talk about how Origin's beginnings and how Tara has slowly and systematically removed herself from daily production, so she can focus on building a great team and taking on new projects in the business.
