Katy Bean

Business Owner & 
Baker Extraordinaire

Katy grew up with a love for cooking, baking and gathering around the table with loved ones. Food was always at the center of her fondest memories.

 

As an adult, Katy started Bean & Pie, a bakery that focuses on sourcing local ingredients, supporting the local community and creating treats for people to enjoy together.

 

After adopting a Whole Foods Plant Based lifestyle, Katy has channeled that same love of cooking and baking into creating nourishing meals for her family and friends to enjoy and create new memories around. It's her passion to help others understand the benefits of a plant-based lifestyle and provide inspiration for people just starting.
