Why did you start Red Plate?
Becca & Chell Williams created the company in 2013 because Becca was diagnosed in 2008 with gluten intolerance and a severe dairy allergy resulting in anaphylactic reactions. She had to bake for herself to enjoy high-quality baked goods. When their nephew developed severe nut allergies several years later, they saw an opportunity to provide excellent products that families & friends with multiple food issues could indulge in together.
Where is Red Plate located?

Is there a way to visit the Red Plate bakery?
Currently, the bakery is a commercial facility only and not open to the public. Our long-term dream is to open a retail location, but we’re getting the wholesale business on solid footing first. We love to connect with customers, though, so please send us messages, call or meet us in person at our tasting events! (Check the Red Plate Foods Facebook page for event listings.)
