Gracie Hauser of Gracie Girl Bakery has established her own bakery location in Thorp, which offers national shipping through her website and has even been featured on The Today Show, but Eau Claire residents are now able to find her baked goods a little closer to home. Promoting “gluten-free and guilt-free” products, Gracie Girl treats can now be found at Sue’s Deluxe Bake Shop, 1319 Birch St, Eau Claire. Gracie Girl baked goods came to be as a part of Hauser’s dedication to living a healthy lifestyle. From keto and paleo diet-friendly items to products for those with gluten or dairy allergies, Gracie Girl aims to provide a “naturally sweet treat” for people of all lifestyles. Whether it’s muffins, brownies, or breads, there’s something for everyone in the Gracie Girl lineup. “Our mission is to bake goods that are good and good for you, benefiting both your health and happiness,” Hauser said. “Eating well doesn’t have to be complicated; it should actually be simple.” Enter Sue’s Deluxe Bake Shop. Recently under new management, the collaboration between Sue’s and Gracie Girl satisfies a need for both bakeries. For Sue’s, it’s fulfilling the desire for treats that require production in a specialized facility. For Gracie Girl, it’s growth for the business. Together, Gracie Girl and Sue’s hope to offer customers a variety of choices to meet their lifestyle needs in the Chippewa Valley. Gracie Girl products are available at Sue’s Deluxe Bake Shop fresh or frozen, and can also be ordered online for pick-up the next day.
