Oklahoma family business sees community support after Facebook post

After a Facebook post about tough times, an Oklahoma family business is seeing an incredible show of support from the community. Just Baked, a bakery and deli on Mustang Road next to Interstate 40, posted on Facebook Friday morning telling people that hard times may force them to close. They begged customers to save them. “We’ve had a really tough month. Since the beginning of the summer, since school has been out, it’s been really tough,” said Kathleen Swaffer, co-owner of Just Baked. Within hours, after just a few shares, their community took off. There was a line out the door and new customers who had never heard of the place. “I saw their post on Facebook and we’re driving through town so I thought we could help out our local business,” said Natalie Hensley, a customer. The entire store is run by a small family. “My mom and I own this restaurant together, our husbands work here,” Swaffer said. With the large slices of cake, customers said they were getting the best bang for their buck. The store’s co-owner said he was grateful for the response, but there was one more thing they needed to keep their store open. “Just more business. Steady business all week,” Swaffer said.
