Chef's Express started in 2008 as a subset of the Arc, Oneida-Lewis Chapter's Venture Day Habilitation Program, for people with developmental disabilities to learn baking and culinary skills. With much Support, what started as experience for some, has turned into full fledge bakery open to the public in downtown Utica.
Under the guidance of an experienced Head Baker, people of various abilities and disabilities come together to create flavors that will satisfy and delight. Welcome to Chef's Express, where each bite makes a difference!
We work with local suppliers to source the freshest and most authentic ingredients, and use old-fashioned techniques to ensure the highest quality. Our goal is to make your tastebuds happy!
Our bakers start work early each day to ensure that every batch is as fresh as possible before it gets to you. The warm smell of baking often escapes onto the street before we've even opened. We're dedicated to kickstarting your morning with something sweet!
