About the Owners:
Robert Craig III, a 2017 graduate of the University of Cincinnati, is the owner, along with his parents, Robert and Allison Craig. They started Craigâs Divine Desserts in 2014 as a home-based bakery. Their first dessert, loved by many, was the sweet potato pie. In 2016, they were able to change the bakery name to The Sweet Fix Bakery and move into the first family location in Cleveland Heights, Ohio. This is where the signature âsweet fix cakeâ became a sought after bestseller.
While Robert was at the University of Cincinnati, he envisioned expanding the family business to the Cincinnati area. He located a perfect spot on Short Vine and he and his parents opened up The Sweet Place Bakery, in the late summer of 2018.
Robert and the Cincinnati team strive to provide high-quality products and customer service. The Sweet Place Bakery would love to partner with one or more local small restaurants to provide weekly desserts for customers. They have excellent products at fair prices and hope to see you soon.
