Wrote about Fresh Taste Bakery for Fck Prison


Antwoin Gutierrez (age 33) started selling drugs at 16 in Peekskill, NY. He went to prison three times, two for drugs and one for a robbery.

When he got out in 2011, he joined the Doe Fund, a non-profit organization for ex-convicts, and spent a lot of time with the head of food-services. When they started doing baking, he realized that it wasn’t much different from cooking crack. He saw that he had a legitimate and transferable skill. He says, “something just clicked.”

From there, he spent a few years working in different hotels and bakeries, all while posting his baking creations on IG. He launched Fresh Taste Bakery in 2016 and sells about 500 baked goods a day. He’s located in NYC and can be found on IG @freshtastebakery.
