The brother and sister business team are the third generation of Kennedys to run the bakery, which was founded in 1925 by their grandfather. The bakery still creates many of their grandfather's signature recipes from scratch. According to Patty, the Kennedys plan to use their prize money toward necessary operating expenses for the bakery.
"General Mills is a strong supporter of the baking community, and we are thrilled to award Kennedy Bakery with the sweepstakes' $25,000 grand prize," said Tommy Hillman, marketing manager, General Mills Bakeries & Foodservice. "Through the Free for All sweepstakes, we've been able to help operators make a positive impact on their businesses."
