Three Best Bakery
Three Best Bakery is a boutique bakery in the heart of Benton, Arkansas. We make delicious small batch baked goods with quality real ingredients, and even source our eggs from the farm down the road. Our goal is to invoke the feelings of love and delight in all of our customers, whether they are purchasing cookies for themselves or receiving our cookies as a gift. We bake everything fresh, and ship nationwide.
Hey there! I'm Suzanne Godbold, the owner and creative director here at Three Best Bakery. Three Best Bakery began back in 2016 - my two best friends and I were all busy with our full time jobs and everything that comes with being moms. We wanted a reason to intentionally get together, fellowship and let our kids play, so we decided to learn how to make decorated sugar cookies. We started to get orders from friends and family, and it gradually grew into a business with a little bit of money coming in.
After working full time as a Respiratory Therapist, I decided to come home to spend some time with my kids while they were still little. I found the transition more difficult that I had anticipated, and as a self-proclaimed workaholic I really leaned in to growing and building Three Best Bakery from my home.
In 2019, we decided to find a physical storefront, I became the sole owner and opened up the bakery in December of that year. Little did I know, three months later a global pandemic would hit and I would need to adapt and change quickly.
I am incredibly grateful to say that through the pandemic, my business was able to not only survive but also thrive. After losing two of my major income streams - walk-in retail traffic, and decorated sugar cookie classes, I really began to push my online ecommerce portion of my business and started shipping cookies all over the nation. I feel lucky to be able to serve not only my local community but also people around the USA.
