Today Ellen and Don Bell have announced that they will be adding a production site for their company, Baked by Bells, into Downtown Tiffin at 14 Sycamore St. The company plans to continue to sell at the Tiffin-Seneca Farmers Market and other local markets with a newly expanded product line.
Ellen comes from a long line of craftswomen and bakers. She grew up in Tiffin with a love for baking that was instilled in her by her mother and her grandmother, who taught home economics and the art of baking and cooking in the 1930s. Today, Ellen shares that passion with her children, Teagan and Jasmin.
“It is a dream come true to turn my love of baking into a business and to be able to share that with the people I have known in Tiffin for over 40 years,” she said.
Baked By Bells offers macarons, lollipops, short breads, royal icing sugar cookies, buckeye candies, caramels, brownies, muffins, pies, cheesecake, and seasonal hot cocoa bombs. With the addition of freeze-drying equipment, they expanded from a strictly home-based business and now are able to add candy options to their menu. The freeze-drying process provides a unique texture and experience to traditional candy. Baked By Bells products can be found at the Tiffin-Seneca Farmers Market, as well as three surrounding community markets, and they accept custom orders.
Mayor Aaron Montz said “Congratulations to Ellen and Don Bell on the expansion of Baked by Bells. I’m excited to welcome them into the downtown community.”
Baked by Bells products are available at www.bakedbybells.com.
About Downtown Tiffin
The revitalization of downtown Tiffin began in 2011, when a group of community members came together to for “Tiffin Tomorrow”, with the goal of promoting and encouraging economic development in downtown Tiffin, and creating plans, programs and actions to ensure long-term vitality and prosperity. In 2014, the city of Tiffin contracted with SIEDC to act as the downtown organization and “Tiffin Tomorrow” came under the SIEDC umbrella as the “Downtown Development Committee,” which serves as the governing board of the downtown organization. In 2015, Tiffin joined Heritage Ohio’s Ohio Main Street Program. For more information, click here.
