Share this story

Rockwall County has always been a hub for vibrant small businesses, each with its own unique story and flavor. In this edition of the Entrepreneur Spotlight, we shine a light on Ruby Baking Company, a bakery that’s not just about cakes and pastries, but about inclusivity, health, and deliciousness for everyone.

The Journey to Ruby Baking Co.

Meet the owner of Ruby Baking Co., Chelsea Gannon, a local mom and born-and-raised North Texan, with a passion for baking and a heart for those with dietary restrictions. After recognizing the scarcity of baked goods suitable for her family’s food sensitivities, she decided to take matters into her own hands. Thus, Ruby Baking Co. was born, specializing in allergen-free treats that are dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free, and nut-free. Chelsea, whose kiddos are teens, shares their love for basketball and enjoys spending quality family time together. When she’s not in the kitchen creating delicious goodies, you can find her out running or exploring new culinary delights with her loved ones.

From Cottage Baker to Storefront Bakery

Starting as a cottage baker, the journey for Ruby Baking Co. was as much about perfecting recipes as it was about breaking stereotypes. “Every business comes with challenges,” says Chelsea, “but being Allergen Friendly multiplied those.” However, through dedication and a love for sweets, they’ve overcome these hurdles and are now preparing to open their first storefront at 811 E. Yellow Jacket Ln in Rockwall.

Quality and Safety First

At Ruby Baking Co., quality and safety are non-negotiable. Their forthcoming storefront bakery will operate in a fully allergen-friendly kitchen, ensuring no cross-contamination. This commitment to safety sets them apart from other bakeries in the area.

A Heartwarming Journey

One of the most heartwarming stories from their journey involves a young boy who, due to his food allergies, had never had a birthday cake. Ruby Baking Co. changed that, baking him a special cake that became the highlight of his celebration. It’s moments like these that fuel their passion and remind them of the importance of their mission.

Looking Ahead

With the opening of their storefront bakery, Chelsea is aiming for a May grand opening, Ruby Baking Co. aims to grow their business and showcase that allergen-friendly goodies can be just as tasty. They’re excited to introduce new products like their famous Double Chocolate Brownies and engage with the Rockwall community through special events and collaborations.

Keep an eye out for their grand opening in May, where you can indulge in their delectable treats and meet the faces behind the bakery.
