RAPID CITY, S.D. – BakeWorks celebrated the grand re-opening of their location on St. Joseph Street Tuesday morning.

Th 501c3 originally opened about three-years ago around the corner, but they had the opportunity to move to a better location and connect to the Susie Cappa Art Center. Both BakeWorks and the art center are part of Black Hills Works, which provides quality services and supports to people with disabilities in our area.

The CEO of Black Hills Works, Brad Saathoff, says they now have better parking than at their previous location across the street and that they’ve added a lot of interior enhancements that makes the space even better than before.

“One of the reasons we wanted to move is being here, we have much better parking than we did across the street. And we’re able to add a lot of interior enhancements that makes it even a better space than what we had before. I think the early foot traffic that we got from our silent opening has been a clear indicator that we’ve created a really really nice space and the product the staff is putting out is amazing stuff,” said Brad Saathoff, CEO of Black Hills Works. He went on to say “it’s a great place to showcase the talents, the skills that people with disabilities that we serve can do. A great location for them to learn about cash register, customer service skills, as well as baking skills. And for the community to interact with people with disabilities that we support. I think it’s really an amazing experience all the way around for everybody.”

Thanks to their new and larger location, BakeWorks now does catering and commercial orders.
