When her toddler son was diagnosed with multiple food allergies, Roanna Canete experienced the significant difficulties of finding healthy, safe food for allergen diners. Combined with a serendipitous visit to a 100% gluten free bakery in Paris, she embarked on an ambitious plan to transform San Diego into a safe place for allergen diners and to ultimately reshape the food industry.
Featured in Netflix’s Sugar Rush, Roanna’s Gluten Free Baking Company has seen rabid demand in San Diego and has doubled sales each year for the last 3 years.
Check out Roanna’s bagels, donuts, muffins and more at the company’s online store, or visit their first retail location at 4594 30th Street in North Park, San Diego.
The financing was utilized to purchase an existing bakery and to retain and hire employees.
