Our Story

Chocolate Chip Sandwich Cookie with Chocolate Ganache filling - the cookie that started it all!
Chocolate Chip Sandwich Cookie with Chocolate Ganache filling - the cookie that started it all!

After getting downsized from her role as Project Manager for an interior design firm, Melissa realized she had been given an opportunity to try her hand at making a living from her passion for baking. Three Hearts Bake Shop was born and she hasn't looked back. What started out as artisan hand-made cookie sandwiches for local customers has blossomed into a nationwide delivery business offering more than 200 items - each still made by hand and with the same attention to quality and detail as the original cookie sandwiches.

With rising demand came the inevitable growth in areas of dessert catering, wedding dessert tables and custom orders for all kinds of different parties. It has been an incredible journey and everyone involved with Three Hearts Bake Shop is excited to see what the next year brings.

In each of our accounts, it's the same story - product flies off the shelf as quickly as we get it there. People really like it! Our goal is to find the best way to get Three Hearts to more people - and what better way than a food truck?

The Three Hearts Food Truck


Three Hearts goes mobile - Taking it to the people with a retrofitted Sprinter van sporting our logo - a dessert event at every stop!

We have been working hard and saving to make this dream come true. A low mileage sprinter van is exactly what we need. The beauty is, because our products are packaged, we can outfit the van for a fraction of typical food truck costs. Our goal amount will allow us to complete the purchase of the sprinter van, give it a professional branded wrap, retrofit the interior to suit our needs and satisfy any additional requirements. The diesel powered sprinter van model is awesome, because it is reliable, practical, looks fantastic and leaves a way smaller carbon footprint than other traditional options.

Living in California gives us the opportunity to hit the open road year round. There is no shortage of special events in the area at any time of year where we can introduce more and more people to Three Hearts Bake Shop.

We decided at the beginning that we would participate in charitable events at regular intervals, in addition to the regular events we attend and that is exactly what we have done. We plan on keeping this pledge alive with a Three Hearts Food Truck. There are many special needs programs in our area that would welcome a visit. What better way to make someone smile, than a free trip to the bakery!?

Thank you so much for visiting, watching our video and reading our story.
