Cincy Chic: Tell us more about GiGi’s Kitchen!
Ashley Baggett, Owner of GiGi’s Kitchen: GiGi’s Kitchen is a local bakery specializing in delectable butter yeast and cinnamon sugar rolls.
Cincy Chic: What’s the inspiration behind the bakery?
Baggett: As the owner of GiGi’s Kitchen my inspiration came from my grandmother GiGi, (Eva Ogletree). My GiGi taught me the love of baking, and the importance of giving. She willingly opened her heart and her kitchen to serve people who were in need of a good meal. That lesson of giving fuels my inspiration to continue her legacy.
Cincy Chic: Who’s behind GiGi’s Kitchen?
Baggett: Our family had a dream to share our GiGi’s rolls with as many people as possible. In 2009, we began selling our handmade rolls to local businesses in the Greater Cincinnati area. GiGi’s Kitchen went from a dream to a reality through the hard work and partnership of Ashley Baggett, GiGi’s grand-daughter, and John Ogletree, GiGi’s son.
