The Midway Bakery creates cookies, pies, scones and more from scratch with real butter and natural ingredients using traditional recipes. Our flours come from Weisenberger Mill down the road; most of the corn and wheat is raised right here in Kentucky. Our chocolate comes from Ruth Hunt Candies in Mount Sterling. Our pecans are from the Kentucky Nut Corp. in Hickman, Ky.

Justin Traugott, General Manager
Justin Traugott has been a part of the Ouita Michel restaurant family in Midway for a long time.
The Woodford County high school graduate first started working for Ouita in 2005, washing dishes at Holly Hill Inn. His time at Holly Hill Inn sparked an interest in cooking.
“I was always watching what the kitchen was doing. I asked the sous chef if I could learn how."
Justin honed his culinary skills during his time at Holly Hill Inn and in 2012 he moved to The Midway Bakery.
“It’s just an excellent place to work,” he says of the bakery. “I love the people I work with.”
Amanda Dunn, Retail Manager
Amanda Dunn grew up in Louisville and has called Frankfort home for more than a decade. But it was time spent in New Orleans that introduced her to the food service industry and lots of amazing food!
“I bartended, served, and worked in kitchens off and on while raising my daughter until going back to school.”
Amanda pursued a nursing degree at Midway College in 2010 but says she couldn’t get out of the kitchen.
“That’s where I love to be. It’s the heart,” she says. “And that’s the way I feel about the bakery.”
She was hired at The Midway Bakery in 2017 after working as kitchen manager at Bourbon on Main in Frankfort.
“I knew it was the right fit for me,” she says of the Midway Bakery. “I love the way we can serve not only the community, but also the restaurants in our work family. I really look forward to building those relationships and seeing how we can grow and work together.”
