Santa Cruz, CA
Located in Santa Cruz, Companion was created in 2006 with the help of a supportive community and out of the love of hearty sourdough. In the early years Erin spent long days in the kitchen hand-mixing all of the dough, baking, packing and working the farmers markets. In 2010 Erin found a home for Companion and opened the Bakeshop doors on the Westside of Santa Cruz. For us, Companion Bakeshop is a love story. It is the story of a business that has so much heart and soul that it seems an anchor to our community.
