I did not expect to deliver this news, but BrickOvenBaker is closing after 13 years.

BrickOvenBaker began as a family business. Over the past few years, partners have departed, and pressures have come to bear on me, making me aware that getting back into my original career is the right path for me.

We were looking forward to transferring ownership, but that didn't come together in the end.

There is still a possibility that somebody else may come forward, interested in re-opening the business, so contact me if you are that person. If running a business, sales, marketing, and eCommerce in a fun niche sound exciting to you, let's talk.

I'm grateful to have served so many customers in many places. Many of you have become special friends to me. I've enjoyed the opportunity to help deliver hard-to-find products to people in parts of the world that I never imagined I would be serving. There were many fun times, and I'm grateful to have had the chance to work with some terrific people over these years.

Thank you for your well-wishes and nice notes while the site has been down; I appreciated them very much.

Thank you with all of my heart. I'll never forget the many wonderful, kind customers that I've served.
