Vegan Bakery Expands

Vegan Complete Choice Bakery expands product availability as they negotiate with large grocery chains.

The vegan Complete Choice Bakery in Cleveland, Tenn. has, in its first two years of operation, gone from three to 20 products, and is now in negotiations to supply its offerings to grocery stores nationwide. Currently, the company’s cookies, wheat sticks, pastries, and breads are limited to the Cleveland area, but owner Dante Santana is preparing for a mass expansion. Santana has also hired on Emily Stone, a Cordon Bleu certified chef, to help develop products that Santana refers to as the “Mercedes Benz of vegan pastries.” “It’s a whole new side of baking, because to me, baking has always been about eggs and dairy,” Stone said.
