In 2020, Lara de la Rosa started the plant-based Lazy Cow Bakery out of her basement and opened her Fremont brick and mortar in December 2021. Lara’s mission is to bring joy through pastries and cakes while emphasizing worker’s rights — in fact, workers have partial ownership of the bakery and make decisions about their wages and work hours. The result? A business model based on community and compassion as well as delicious desserts. Even non-vegan customers swear by Lara’s beautiful cakes.

Bonus: Lazy Cow Bakery’s profits are funneled back into the community through their mutual-aid organization, Casa Del Xolo.
