About Our Owners

Mara Nicholas is from the beautiful Hudson Valley in New York. George Nicholas is from Jackson, Mississippi. They both met while attending Johnson and Wales University in Charleston, South Carolina. Mara was getting her degree in Baking and Pastry, and George was getting his in Culinary Arts. After graduating in '92, they moved to Asheville, NC, where Mara was recruited by The Grove Park Inn, and George worked at the Radisson Hotel downtown. During that time, they got married at the Grove Park Inn. After about three years, they moved to Washington D.C. There Mara worked as the Assistant Pastry Chef at The Grande Hyatt, and George was the Banquet Chef at The Marriott Metro Center

Then they both worked at Lansdowne Conference Resort in Leesburg, VA, with Mara as the Assistant Pastry Chef and George as the Assistant Garde Manger Chef. In 2001 they decided they would move back "home" to Asheville, where Mara became the Pastry Chef at The Bistro on Biltmore Estate and George the Executive Sous Chef at The Stable Cafe on Biltmore Estate. After a couple of years at Biltmore, Mara went to work as the Pastry Chef at Kenmure Country Club, and George went to Connestee Falls in Brevard as the Executive Chef. They had a baby boy in 2005 named Jacob, and Mara decided to work for Aramark at the Asheville School. In 2009 she started The Baker's Box in her spare time. George went on to be the Executive Chef at The Esmeralda Inn. After many years producing wedding cakes and being a farmers market vendor out of their home, they decided to open the little storefront on Kanuga. Four years later, here we are in a larger, more spacious storefront (lots more room for Legos, too!). And so here we are and the story goes on...
