Episode 10: Revolutionizing the Bakery Business, with Johnathon Bush

By: AF Editors

“If you have your customers telling you they want something and can’t find it, that’s where you’ll see your success.”

For the Season Two finale of Brewing Business, we spoke with baker and entrepreneur Johnathon Bush! Johnathon is the owner and founder of Not Just Cookies Wholesale Bakery, an online bakery using the power of technology, ghost delivery, and mobile apps to bring fresh cookies coast to coast in the US and Canada, with physical locations in Chicago and New York City. Not Just Cookies makes amazing desserts the right way, offering traditional desserts and allergen-free desserts to their customers, just the same as when Johnathon first started baking in his mother’s kitchen when he was 13.

When Johnathon isn’t creating delicious desserts for the people of Chicago and beyond, you can find him working on the Illinois Small Business Equity Council, encouraging and fostering youth entrepreneurship and free enterprise, and last but not least, leading the Chicago chapter here at AF!

Enjoy our conversation about the struggles of opening a business amidst burdensome regulations, the importance of listening to your customers, and creating the perfect recipe for success. Don’t forget to rate and subscribe!
