Sarah Carter, senior, started her own business in the middle of 2023. Carter’s business is called Get That Bread, where she creates her own recipes, bakes them, and sells them at the Downtown Conway Farmers Market and Crafts market, as well as doing personal orders. Carter has been baking for a while, “I’ve been baking seriously since about May 2022, before that it wasn’t as big of an interest. So, I would bake things before then, but not at the same level that I do now.” After her interest peaked in baking she started working on a business plan for Get That Bread.

Carter decided to start her business because she already had a passion for baking. “I thought … ‘I feel like other people would want to try this!’ Sharing food with people is such a genuine thing that makes everyone happy, and when I see someone buy something from me and then come back and tell me how good it was, it gives me the best feeling ever.” Carter enjoys making her Strawberry Cheesecake muffins, and her Babkas. “They are these really good Jewish yeast breads that I fill with different fillings. One has a dark chocolate fudge filling and one has a blueberry cheesecake filling!”

Conway High School offers a culinary class, Carter is in Culinary 2, and this has helped her with her baking career. Culinary has not only helped her with her baking skills, but also kitchen etiquette, and general knowledge of the kitchen. “Culinary had me take the ServSafe certification test, so now I’m ServSafe certified! This means I’m fully educated on how to prepare and serve food safely to people, which is extremely important in what I’m doing.” Once Carter graduates high school she plans on getting a business degree. “I hope to open my own bakery one day, so after I get my degree I would want to go to pastry school in France,” she said. 

Carter is owning her business while she is in school, as well as being on the soccer team. “…my regulars understand the situation. But, I will never let my limits decrease the value of my product.” She has new seasonal fall flavors she will be adding shortly to the menu at the Farmer’s Market.
