LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. -- A bakery in downtown Lawrenceville has gained a cult following in the six months it's been open.
"The cupcakes are just fantastic. They're divine," one customer said.
But the little bakery is also getting noticed for what it's doing that is unlike any other similar business -- and a hint can be found in the name. Most of the employees at Special Kneads & Treats have special needs.
Owners Tempa and Mike Kohler opened the bakery for their son Bradley, who had aged out of the system and couldn't find anyone else to give him a chance to work.
Special Kneads is a non-profit. Tempa and Mike said their employees are not charity cases, but are a critical part of why the bakery is in the black only half a year after opening.
