When husband and wife Jay and Danielle Lunt decided to re-locate to Arizona from Las Vegas to be closer to family it meant selling their successful 10 year old bakery. After 11 years in Arizona the couple decided they “kneaded” to get back to their baking roots and opened Rise Up Bakery www.riseupbread.com in December.
The cozy, neighborhood bakery is located at Gilbert Tuscany Village and features the couples specialty, bread along with cookies, muffins, scones and more. Their bread is made from scratch and use all natural ingredients and is prepared with out no added oils, eggs and preservatives.
“We missed being in the bakery everyday and seeing the faces of our customers enjoying what we baked,” said Jay. “We pride ourselves on offering the best classic treats, and hope that we can offer something new to the amazing Gilbert community. Our goal is to create something both beautiful and delicious using simple ingredients.”
Rise Up is opened Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. and is located at 861 N. Higley Rd.(at Guadalupe) in Gilbert. 480-264-3026.
