Baked Goods from Home for the Community
January 27, 2023
Megan’s Bake Shop was first opened on December 14, 2022 at 103 W Old RD, Fair Grove, MO.
Megan’s Bake Shop is a “home-based bakery” that offers cakes, cupcakes, and cookie cakes. Megan Mecey, the owner of the bake shop and baker of the goods, also offers varieties of cookies and bars, but these goods are for order only. In addition to making home-baked goods, Megan specifically points out her specialty custom icing designs on cakes and cupcakes for birthdays or any other number of celebrations, a catalog of her work available on her Facebook page which uses the same name as her business.
“I live here in Fair Grove and the community is great to each other. I’ve always wanted to open up a shop just wasn’t sure where,” Megan explained, “I did some advertising but I also have worked my business out of my house for the last 2 years, so I have gained a lot of customers that way, but belief in word of mouth and that has given me a lot of business.”
In the past, Megan has posted advertisements for savings on holidays such as Valentine’s Day, which featured romance-themed goods, Mother’s Day, and even Easter. Megan has also run deals for “10% off a purchase of 5 or more items” when she needed to clean the shop, opting not to just throw the goods away.
“I’ve brought some recipes from my grandmas, because that’s how I fell in love with baking, my grandmas teaching me. I’ve always dreamed of owning my own shop, and with hard work and dedication it became true,” Megan shared. Currently, she is the only employee at her bakery.
The bakery features a fixed menu, with Megan trying to add occasional different goods or changes to what’s inside the case. In the past this has included things like Carrot Cake.
Although a very new addition to the Fair Grove community, many customers left very positive feedback on her Facebook page, highly recommending the shop to others. She is currently at a 5-star rating. Megan responded to this by saying, “I say for just opening I have been blessed and very lucky with all the community support and business they are giving me.”
The bakery’s hours of operation are 6am-2pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays, 6am-4pm Friday, and closed on Sundays and Mondays. These hours may vary around the holidays, so if you want updates, Megan posts all in-store deals and any schedule changes to her Facebook page, “Megan’s Bake Shop”.
