• Family Owned Bakery
    142 replies, posted
It is that time of year again. I have recycled the thread from last year, so there is no question about the history. My family owns Granny C's Bakery in Huber Heights, Ohio. A local website is doing a competition for Dayton's Best Bakery. I would appreciate anyone who would please vote for us. Unlike the bakeries in these super markets that put out factory made prepacked items or factory made frozen things that they warm up and put out, we make it from scratch. We are a full service bakery that makes everything from breads, buns, cakes, and doughnuts to all kinds of sweat treats like fudge, pies, cheese cakes, and cannolis. We even do specialty items upon request like gluten free cakes. Please come vote for us and if you are in the area, stop in and pick something up, you will not be disappointed.

Please vote for one of us. Thanks.

I won't vote just for the fact that you joined just for the votes.
That cake looks tasty.
Is promoting or advertising allowed?
Didn't something like this end badly last time because they found out facepunch was voting?
[QUOTE=Hackintosh;36381911]Didn't something like this end badly last time because they found out facepunch was voting?[/QUOTE] Who cares. If they're as good as they claim to be, they shouldn't have a hard time gathering votes without us.
I'll vote. I love cake too much not to abide.
[QUOTE=Hackintosh;36381911]Didn't something like this end badly last time because they found out facepunch was voting?[/QUOTE] Pretty sure that was a real facepuncher though, and he won without any problems.
tina the baker...very informative name
Even if you did only join for our votes, you made us a cake and everything. I'll vote for you.
I live in Huber Heights too oddly enough and I think I've had a cake from your bakery. You guys did a good job.
I love family owned businesses
Hey tina, long time no see. I'm making cup cakes, I made a cake too a long time ago. I don't wait a year to post stuff to face punch. Hell, I love the community because they support each other. What about you? Have you supported this community? [url]http://facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=1191641&p=36390381#post36390381[/url]

Ah, Granny C, my favorite facepuncher!
Facepunch cake at least deserves a vote.
[QUOTE=Color;36381908]Is promoting or advertising allowed?[/QUOTE] They do not say it is prohibited. The only requirement they list is that there is only one vote per IP.

[QUOTE=blacksam;36383528] What doesn't sell, goes to the House of Bread. [url]http://www.houseofbread.org/[/url] [/QUOTE] That is AWESOME!!! We donate to the VFW and several local churches. It is ridiculous the way some of these area business try to pass off day old stuff as fresh product.
blacksam is a gold member and everything, and he's been here for years. Why are we just randomly voting for someone who joined in 2011 and has 5 posts? :v: Don't get me wrong, the cake is lovely, but this is someone that's been a far more active part of the community.

How about you don't turn merit contest into popularity contests?
I want a piece of cake that says Valve on it please.
Wait a second, are you only advertising here because you know that Boosalis did the same thing last year? If not, then I guess we can look forward to a bakeoff to see who deserves the vote.
Great Cake! :) Voted for you. Looks like your in the lead x3
I'm sorry, I love the cake, I think it's great, but I'd much rather vote for blacksam since he's been here much longer than you have, he didn't join just for votes, and I know who he is. Good luck to the both of you.

I voted for the community member, not the advertising gimmick OP.
