Collaborative Venture with Artisans; Featuring 15-Seat Indoor Dining and B, L, D Menu
Scheduled to open June 24th
By: B'More with Pride Commercial Kitchen and Cafe
The pandemic forced Wainwright to shut down the cafe, take a moment to breathe, brainstorm and pivot. COVID-19 was bittersweet for all. "We lost family, customers, community members, and so forth. After 11 years of business, I had to rely on faith, the life lessons from my grandmother to curate something better for Baltimore. Everything I am is because of B'more, the support of the city, parents, and people. I went from being bullied, contemplated suicide as a teen, to becoming a change agent as a daycare owner, to now an entrepreneur,"
B'More with Pride Commercial Kitchen and Cafe is a culinary hub and commercial kitchen that caters to anyone in the food industry that needs to prepare, cook, and sell their culinary offering. The cafe will also curate dining experiences, curbside delivery, catering, and events for patrons. Wainwright is the recipient of numerous business grants totaling approximately $60k; and presented and sold out her confections on QVC. "Although we were sold-out of brittle on QVC, I did not have space or staff to manufacture the volume of handcrafted brittles, and that is why I opened B'More Made with Pride Commercial Kitchen to support myself and fellow artisans," says Natasha.
Natasha Wainwright previously founded and ran an eco-friendly daycare, Progress Place Learning Center (PPLC). Her Natasha's Just Brittle opened in summer 2009 as part of a business fundamentals learning project for the children at her daycare. PPLC Sweet Treats, the daycare's made-to-order sweet shop, sold over $500 in confections that summer. The handmade brittle was the most popular item and now offers over 40 flavors using an all-natural base of a mixture of brown and white sugar, butter, sea salt, and agave.
"B'More with Pride Commercial Kitchen and Cafe is my heartbeat. A sweet haven allowed a former daycare owner to dream big just by listening to the life lessons from her ancestors and community. Give back to Baltimore and let God take care of everything else. That is my mantra, real simple but sweet like Natasha's Just Brittle. I am inviting everyone to represent Baltimore and come to the grand opening expansion of B'More with Pride Commercial Kitchen and Cafe," beams Wainwright.
