Bailey’s Bakery, Café and Sports Bar in downtown Hoyt serves comfort food up right. Cindie Bailey, owner/operator, always loved baking goodies for her large family and providing treats for school events. She had always loved baking and when her children were in high school she realized she had a gift. For five years Bailey dreamed of making her passion for cooking into a business. Driving as a union teamster for Pay Less out of Topeka, she had a lot of time to think. When the warehouse shut down operations she knew it was time. “I’ve always had a passion for cooking and everyone raves about it, especially my pies and cinnamon rolls," says Bailey. “The community was in need and my job was eliminated so it was the perfect time to act.” Teresa McAnerney, Northeast Kansas Enterprise facilitator describes Bailey in one word “Determined”.

Enterprise Facilitation Board Member Profile interested in Real Estate and have found that it ties in nicely with Insurance sales. After-all anyone who purchases a house needs insurance. I also co-own and operate a family owned small business and have recently developed it into a limited liability corporation and purchased our first manufacturing facility. The consulting business came along by accident. Many people were asking me for advice about business issues due to my background as a Community and Economic Development Director. All of a sudden someone offered to pay for my advice, and a new business venture was born.

Christy Isaacs, Jill of all Trades Christy is an Insurance Agent for Shelter Insurance Company, a Realtor with United Country Real Estate, CoOwner of Country Memories Soap, LLC, and President of Isaacs Consulting & Business Services. Why Isaacs supports Enterprise Facilitation: I believe everybody has an idea for a business that they would like to own someday. Some of these businesses develop from hobbies, some from a need, some from a family member or friend, etc. But very few people understand how to start a business and the vitally important role that planning plays in business creation and maintenance. The idea is the fun part, the planning isn't always. Enterprise facilitation through its Facilitator, Teresa McAnerney, and the network of board members helps take that great idea and make it a reality.

Isaacs has a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management from William Woods University and a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Benedictine College.

Background: After ten years as an Economic Development Professional, I was afforded the opportunity to go out and try my hand at a new career path. I had always been

“I am totally absorbed by my husband and four year old little boy. His job seems to be to teach me just how little control I actually have. We live in Atchison in a home that overlooks the Missouri River, which reminds me of my roots near Bogard, Missouri,” stated Isaacs.
