Continuing the Tradition
THE SEEDS FOR THE BAKE SHOPPE AT COUNTRY TABLE WERE PLANTED ALMOST 35 YEARS AGO, WHEN THE COUNTRY TABLE WAS FOUNDED IN 1983. MOUNT JOY HAS CHANGED A LOT OVER THAT TIME, BUT ONE THING THAT HASN'T CHANGED IS OUR DEDICATION TO BEING A QUALITY, MADE-FROM-SCRATCH BAKERY. NEW TEAM MEMBERS WHO JOIN OUR BAKERY GET THE UNIQUE EXPERIENCE OF SERVING SOME CUSTOMERS WHO HAVE BEEN WITH US FOR DECADES. WE GET THE PLEASURE OF BAKING CAKES FOR TEENAGERS WHO HAVE ONLY EVER HAD A BIRTHDAY CAKE FROM OUR BAKERY. WITH THIS JOY ALSO COMES THE RESPONSIBILITY OF MEETING AND EXCEEDING THE LEVEL OF SERVICE AND QUALITY THAT KEEPS FOLKS COMING BACK. SO IF YOU'VE BEEN WITH US FOR YEARS, THANK YOU! IF YOU'VE NEVER HAD THE BAKE SHOPPE EXPERIENCE, WE INVITE YOU TO COME BY AND CHECK US OUT.

Tom & Jess
Title: Owners, Heads of Customer Service
How we got here. Jess: Our story together started here at the bakery. During my senior year of high school in 2004, my parents told me it was time to get a job. I started here at Country Table as a bakery clerk, which was owned & operated by Tom's family. Tom: Jess caught my eye on her very first day. In less than a week, I asked for her number in the break-room. Romantic right? Well, much to my surprise she actually gave it to me! And the rest is history. Jess: We have been on this journey of life together ever since, and have learned to trust God more with every step. In late 2016, the doors began to open for us to rejoin the team we left, this time as owners. After prayerful consideration, we decided to rejoin the team, exactly 13 years from the day we first met.
