Our mission is to empower the underprivileged youth within the community. We encourage an entrepreneurial mind-set and provide jobs to students who are involved in The Pursuit Program at local schools in the area. Our goal is to provide these students with an opportunity to learn, train, and work so they have the skills to be independent and successful adults. Cakery Square is so much more than a traditional bakery; it is a platform for students to start training in areas that are passionate to them and help equip them for real-life experiences.
MEET THE OWNERS
Former Pittsburgh Steeler, Wes Lyons, had the vision to open Cakery Square after hosting an annual dessert tasting fundraiser for his Pursuit Program. He thought it would be a great opportunity to create jobs for students who are enrolled in his program because the program focuses on career preparation, leadership and life skills.
To make this vision a reality, Wes partnered with Amber Greene to open Cakery Square, where the focus is about giving more attention to the kids in the community.
Amber is an MBA graduate from Florida State University who always wanted to have her own business. She has a passion for desserts and seeing things come to life so this was a perfect fit for her.
As Cakery Square evolves, the mission remains the same: it’s an opportunity to make a sweet difference!
