"I always wanted to bake pound cakes because we don't have anything like that in Logan," she said. "There is nothing as wonderful as a fresh pound cake. It's the best pound cake you will ever eat."
Rackley was quickly impressed by [Karin] Allen and what the incubator had to offer.
"She gave me a tour and really stayed with me when trying to bake in high altitude," Rackley said of Allen. "She'll do whatever she can do to make your business a success. It was the perfect stepping stone between my home and a full-scale commercial kitchen."
The kitchen, she said, "was everything I was using, just more of them."
Rackley credits the incubator as what allowed her to start up the Stonehouse Bakery commercially.
"It gave me time to work out a business plan, a marketing plan, join the Chamber of Commerce; it gave me time. If you go straight into a commercial kitchen with a $200,000 overhead, you don't have time to do it right - to figure out where you want to fit in with businesses in Logan."
