Influencer Interview: Kara’s Bread

It was a hobby at first, starting with following other bakers on Instagram to learn more about bread making. She was working full time alongside baking bread, but the “hobby” took off in a way that surprised her.

Once the pandemic happened, the company moved to Nashville, leaving Mondragon without a job like so many others.
