Melinda's Biscotti

It was over fifteen years ago when Melinda made her first biscotti for her family. She really didn’t know where this journey would lead her when she brought some snacks to work. Everyone thought it was so good that she should bring it to coffee shops in Victoria. Initially she saw it as a way to make enough money to take her girls to Disneyland, and with an oven, a mixer, and lots of determination her plan was underway.

It took a lot to get started but soon the biscotti was available in five local shops near Sidney where she lived. After a year of steady orders Alun joined the business and they decided to make a go of it. Melinda stayed at her day job at the hospital, then while working at home they renovated their garage into a commercial bakery and for three years they kept going. By then deliveries were going out to 85 coffee shops as far as Nanaimo, and people were noticing it in Toronto. The little garage bakery was becoming too small and it was time to make a change. Melinda took a leave from her job, and the pair rented a commercial space in Sidney to build a larger bakery. They then added a coffee shop and went to work. Business was ramping up, more coffee shops and stores were carrying Melinda's Biscotti, and regular customers as far away as Toronto came online. Rumour has it that even the president of Italy has enjoyed Melinda's Biscotti, and we know the snowbirds have! Eventually that space became too small again so three years later Melinda and Alun, with the help of many wonderful customers and friends, picked up the business and moved down the street to their current location with a bigger coffee shop and space to supply over 300 customers in four provinces.

If you ask Melinda and Alun what the best part of their business is, they will always tell you the same thing; it's the people they have met along the way, the wonderful customers, and the suppliers they have come to know and work with.
