Among her many other socially-responsible activities, Connie Milstein owns Connie’s Bakery & General Store in downtown Mt. Kisco, New York. What makes this business venture so unique is that 100% of Connie’s net profits are donated to charitable causes.
In addition to the financial contributions that the store makes, it also offers a myriad of other benefits for local residence. Certainly, it provides employment for people in the neighborhood. In addition, Connie’s employees take part in a unique one-year, full-time baking apprenticeship program. They are trained for the entire year by Simeon Manber, the Executive Pastry Chef and graduate of the Culinary Institute of America.
At the end of their one-year apprenticeship, Connie’s Bakery & General Store helps them to move into permanent positions in the food service industry. They then get ready to recruit and train another batch of apprentices!
