Meet Crust by Mack
Amanda Mack created Crust by Mack as a pop-up bakery concept in 2018. Even then, her pastries flew off the shelf at local cafes and bakeries across Baltimore. In its first year as a pop up, Crust raised over six thousand dollars for local organizations and charities. As the concept grew, Crust collaborated with small businesses quickly becoming a staple at many social events.
This small pop-up bakery found a big home at Whitehall Market in Hampden. Husband and wife, Jarrod and Amanda Mack, now run Crust with many of their family members including the Matriarch of Amanda’s family, Grandma - Yvonne Roy! Amanda’s Mom, Aunt, Sister, Cousins and Brother-in-Law also work at the bakery part time, making this little bakeshop a true family business. Since opening amidst the COVID-19 pandemic in the Summer of 2020, Crust has raised funds for over a half dozen minority owned brands in Baltimore and beyond. Crust actively supports the Maryland Food Bank to assist food insecure families.
Crust by Mack started a long term partnership with CHUCG- Black Yield to help raise funds for what will become Cherry Hill’s first Black-owned, community-led grocery store.
