Baking with Purpose

DOWNTOwn Rapid City, SD


Located on Mt. Rushmore Road in the heart of downtown Rapid City, BakeWorks is a bakery with a selection of delicious pastries, fresh breads, coffee, sandwiches, and more.

We believe in baking with purpose, one pastry at a time. BakeWorks is part of the Black Hills Works family, a community of people with disabilities where everyone participates to achieve a life of purpose and potential. BakeWorks serves up the opportunity to learn food preparation and customer service skills in a real-life work setting.

From baking pastries and decorating cupcakes to preparing sandwiches and coffee, every aspect is an opportunity for our employees to grow while also providing our customers with delicious products and the best smiles in Rapid City. BakeWorks is more than a job for the people we support, it’s a career made from scratch.
