baking it happen
Well, the one on the left is Morgan, and the one on the right is Nigel. These two are the bakers & brains behind the business. Nigel is a local man from up the road in Clara & Morgan is from a little further afield – Cleveland, Ohio. The two met in New York City and after migrating to Las Vegas for a brief stint, they began dreaming about opening a bakery like no other.
The pair decided to move to Ireland in the summer of 2019. Nigel & Morgan continued toying with the idea of setting up shop, but it was when the pandemic hit in March of 2019 that they began putting their plans & dream’s into action. After finding themselves displaced and their work in the hospitality sector on hold, this was it! Now or never. So, they found the perfect spot in the middle of Athlone and opened their first set of doors on the 8th of October 2020.
Et voilà! Stodge Face was born. Today, Nigel & Morgan have three shops (& counting) and employ over 30 members of staff. They are proud and appreciative of what Stodge Face is and what it is to become.
But what’s the real driving force behind Stodge Face & its success? Morgan’s cravings for American-style doughnuts.
