We strive to fulfill all special requests and even provide complimentary local delivery. Our business is absolutely customer focused . With a background in customer service, running a customer-centric business has been an easy transition. My twin daughters, Madison and Skylar, are my co-owners at BIK. Together, we are learning how to balance work/ school and life. We are learning, as a team, the best practices to navigate a business . Launched in October 2020 we have had an incredible year. We feel much joy when we are able to help our customers with dietary restrictions. We share in our customers awesome success when they  tell us how great they feel, how much weight they have lost and how well controlled their blood sugars are. Keeping Spirits high and blood sugars low… we are Bakin’ It Keto!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Madison is a co-owner of BIK. Diagnosed in 2017 with Type 1 Diabetes , we were originally told by her health team that Madi could eat what ever she wanted, just count carbs and cover with insulin. No worries about complications as that was way off in the future…. Huh?….Heck no! After 3 months of rollercoaster blood sugars, frustrations and sleepless nights we knew we had to find a better solution —a new management style. After much research we discovered that Type 1 and Type 2 diabetics were following a low-carb lifestyle to manage their blood sugars. As a family, we decided to go all in!  We are healthier, happier and so grateful to the experts and advocates who recognized this out of the box protocol for Type 1 Diabetes management. Madison is entitled to normalized blood sugars. Following a ketogenic way of eating has given back our hope and belief of an incredibly bright future free of complications and misery.  Madison’s biggest supporter is Skylar, her twin sister and business partner at BIK. Skylar is the key to our success in becoming keto adapted. She always has Madison’s back. Sky’s support makes Madison comfortable, never isolated or alone in peer settings. Together they are truly a dynamic duo!
