Jana loves to bake! For as long as Jana can remember she has always helped her mom in the kitchen with baking anything from cookies, to pies, to muffins. She was always the eager assistant and could not wait to sample the finished product. Slowly the dream of opening a small town bakery began to evolve. In order to have a strong foundation for her future business, Jana earned a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management from Grove City College. Next, Jana pursued a degree in Baking and Pastry Arts from Johnson & Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island. While at Johnson & Wales, she learned a variety of skills including cake decorating, Classical French pastries, baking breads, making chocolates, creating showpieces and decorating plates.
With the skills she learned both at Grove City and Johnson & Wales, Jana’s dream of opening a bakery is a reality. Come check out Jana’s Bakery in downtown Chambersburg! In 2013, Jana’s mother, Kathy, moved to the area and joined the baking team.
