Exploring Life & Business with Caitlyn Cottrill of Cottrillionaire Baking Co.

Today we’d like to introduce you to Caitlyn Cottrill.

Hi Caitlyn, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
Founded in July 2020, created Cottrillionaire Baking Co. after a lifelong battle against lactose intolerance & significant digestive issues.

This company was founded on the basis of easing the burden for people who struggle to eat things outside of what they make for themselves. I have had lactose intolerance since birth and decided last November that enough was enough and went fully dairy-free. I struggled to find desserts I could eat, and when I did- they were either A) not good or B) so expensive I’d go broke with how much of a sweet tooth I have.

Cottrillionaire Baking Co. allows those with allergies and specific dietary needs (chosen or not) to have the ability & ease if eating out again. We can’t help it that it happens to taste good for everyone.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It’s been interesting for sure starting a business during a pandemic. It started as a hobby when none of my students showed up for online class. Then it turned into something I was pretty good at. The struggle for us right now is getting our name out there & funding. The goal is to open a storefront soon!

The long-term goal is to combine all my degrees to create an inclusive, allergy-friendly bakery that hires adults and teens with disabilities & utilizing Applied Behavior Analysis strategies to provide paid internships and on the job work experiences.

As you know, we’re big fans of Cottrillionaire Baking Co. . For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about the brand?
We specialize in providing food options to people that have allergies or have specific dietary needs that can’t be met at a “regular” bakery or restaurant.

What sets us apart is not only is everything made from scratch, but the entire menu is vegan. We also strive to provide a clean & safe environment in which your treats are made. All ingredients are checked daily for expiration dates and quality control. Gloves are worn while preparing and packaging the food.

We offer locals a variety of choices- cakes, cookies, cake pops, cupcakes, cupcakes on the go! & more! Nationwide shipping includes cupcakes on the go! which are mason jars stuffed with layers of cupcakes, frostings, and toppings. They work great because you can eat some & save the rest for later!

Do you have recommendations for books, apps, blogs, etc?
Unrelated entirely, but I love listening to Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard. ☺️
