Carrie has spent a lifetime baking. She started at Modern Bakery in Springfield, assembling cake boxes when she was just 14 years old. She met Carmino there in the 1970s and later went on to work in every aspect of the bakery business. She continued her baking, also working at Atkins Farm, serving as Head Sales Manager for 10 of the 22 years at the store. She’s been happily working at Armata’s for two years and now that she’s here, she wouldn’t have it any other way.
“We’ve done a lot of stuff together, building bakeries together throughout the years,” says Carrie. “When it comes to made-from-scratch baking, there’s nothing he can’t do or create. I help him on the creative side, offering ideas and decorating confections. I have the marketing aspect of the bakery and enjoy bridging customers to what we do. Carmino tends to get stuck at the bench more.”
