Join Mark Dyck as he talks with bakers and bakery owners from across North America and around the world. Hear about their struggles and triumphs and learn about the satisfaction that feeding a community can provide.

There are a hundred moving parts at the bakery, even for solo bakers.  Ingredients coming in, food going out, and all the processes in between.  

Without well defined, repeatable, teachable systems, a day at the bakery can feel like chaos.  Get your team on the same page, however, and you can make more product, and feed more people than you ever imagined.

In this episode, Mark shares stories of systems gone awry at bakeries and coffee shops he's visited, and his own bakery as well. He makes the case for getting the boss and the team moving in the same direction to develop systems so your bakery runs more smoothly and with less tension.  And he offers some ideas for getting started in making your bakery system savvy.
