Fox In The Snow

While living in New York City, Lauren Culley left a career book publishing to pursue her passion of being a baker. With no professional culinary training, she pushed her way into the culinary scene by working as a pastry assistant and eventual pastry manager for Blue Bottle Coffee. While there, she met her husband and eventual partner, Jeff Excell, and the two began to plan their own bakery in Culley's hometown of Columbus, Ohio. In 2014, they opened Fox in the Snow to much popularity and acclaim, quickly solidifying their shop as a Columbus favorite. In 2018, they opened their second location with plans on the horizon for a third.
