Celiac Family Opens Gluten Free Bakery | Triumph Dining

We’re always happy to hear about the opening of a new gluten-free bakery, but we’re even more excited to share when there’s a personal story behind it.

Lisa and Tim Jermyn are a couple living in Lockport, NY. Seven years ago they found out that all three of their children had celiac disease. When they weren’t impressed with the taste or cost of gluten-free options in their area, they began experimenting with gluten-free baking themselves. When Lisa discovered she was pretty good at this gluten-free baking malarkey, she decided to quit her job as a teacher and open a 100% gluten-free bakery!

A Better Way opened in December, 2012. Jermyn says that the store’s sweet products are priced similarly to those in a traditional bakery whilst the breads and pizza crusts are a little more expensive.

As well as at the store, A Better Way products are also available in Niagara County Produce’s Lockport location; at the Bakehouse Market in Father Sam’s in Cheektowaga; and at Wilson’s Pizza Shop in Newfane, which uses their gluten-free crust. They also plan to open a café at some point.

“When I first started, I didn’t think we’d have so many retail customers,” she said. She thought she’d be selling wholesale, but she laughed, “I couldn’t keep the people out.”

A Better Way location and hours:

6429 Dysinger Rd, Lockport, NY 14094

Tuesday-Friday 10am-6pm

Saturday 10am-3pm
