What Makes Lexington Great?
Backroads Bakery is as warm as the yellow paint building that houses their mouthwatering cheesecakes, cupcakes, and other sweet treats.
“Lexington has one of the tightest and most supportive communities I have ever experienced. I love being a part of it.”
Co-owners (and sisters) Ruth and Katie Ralph decided to open a physical location after running their dessert shop online for about a year and a half. The pair opened their doors in March and feel right at home in the North Limestone neighborhood. Ruth notes, “Lexington has one of the tightest and most supportive communities I have ever experienced. I love being a part of it.”
This love stems from living in Lexington for 26 years and still being blown away by the sense of family and support that Lexington has shown them. Ruth long dreamed of owning a dessert shop and took the leap of faith to turn her love of making cheesecakes into a career. The Ralphs have since become small business advocates explaining that, “Buying local keeps more of our revenue in our own communities.”
When they aren’t hiking, camping, kayaking, traveling or enjoyng the outdoors, the Ralph sisters are engaged in community building. They understand that their business plays a viable part in the community, one cheesecake at a time.
