Ampersand Bakehouse


 Why Ampersand?

Ampersand (or that fancy & sign) is all about bringing things together. For us, that means you & your dog. We understand the important relationship between a dog lover and their pup. They are part of the family and included in everything we do. We wanted them to join in with our snacking as well. 


Stephanie Kaptein, Founder

Before starting Ampersand Bakehouse, Stephanie worked as a foresight strategist at a consulting agency. She had the opportunity to redefine the future of food with companies such as Campbell's, Tyson and McCain's, but was left craving the physical interaction with food itself. After experimenting with cakes, donuts and cookies, Stephanie shifted her focus to dog-friendly snack mixes that she could share with her french bulldog Archie.
