Our Story A little bit about Rocket

“Since opening, Rocket has become a bustling but cozy community hub, from the French-influenced bakery offerings to the vintage building’s upstairs level, an active music and event space that has hosted such acts as The Once and the Weakerthans.”

Welcome to Rocket Bakery & Fresh Food! We’d like you to meet everyone who works here behind the scenes at Rocket! We’re a friendly, fun-loving bunch. Say hi the next time you’re in!

 

Did we say fun-lovin’?

It took a group effort of family and friends to launch Rocket Bakery on March 31, 2011! Now a thriving business, Rocket’s owners Dave Hopley, Kelly Mansell and Mark McGann are looking forward to the intergalactic adventures the future holds for Rocket!

Bakery + Kitchen Staff

We are super proud of our gang behind the scenes!  They make everything from scratch and are responsible for the Rocket Food that fans have come to love!  Can’t get enough fish cakes?  They scooped ’em!  Need to start your morning with our cinnamon buns?  They rolled ’em!  Crave our sour dough breads?  They baked ’em!  They’re wicked!
