What Society Bakery Believes In

What makes Society Bakery special?

Society Bakery opened 2003 in Dallas, Texas. The born and raised Texan founder loved to bake, loved to sell, and wanted to change the world around her. Society Bakery is a true Texas original. We believe in being old fashioned, yet innovative. We believe in the neighborhood. We believe a bakery should bake and decorate in-house AND with love. We believe if you follow your passion, it will show in your work. We are Society Bakery because we love the community and we love to bake, not because this is a business model that makes sense. There is nothing manufactured, mediocre, or generic about the bakery or what it stands for.

Society Bakery believes in consistently top-notch quality cakes, cookies, and old fashioned treats such as brownies, crostatas, cupcakes, lemon squares, muffins, petit fours, pies, sugar cookies, and whoopie pies. We use the finest ingredients (Callebaut, Guittard, Hershey’s, Local Honey, Local Jam, Organic Milk, Philadelphia Cream Cheese, and Real Butter).

Society Bakery donates throughout the year to over 100 different charities, schools and non-profit organizations. We do not take a tax write off for these donations. Society Bakery believes that a business can be profitable and charitable at the same time. We are not “high society”; we give back to society. By purchasing delicious goods in Society Bakery’s warm, welcoming atmosphere, you are contributing to a philanthropic model that improves our surrounding neighborhood and society at large.

What Society In Society Bakery Really Means (*Article Written by Lakewood Bubblelife)

Lakewood Bakery Sweetens Up Society

Walk into Society Bakery and it’s a little bit like stepping into a dessert-lover’s dream.

Scrumptious looking cupcakes sit perfectly aligned inside of glass display cases, just beckoning you to indulge in their decadence.   The tantalizing smells of freshly baked red-velvet whoopie pies and delicately frosted sugar cookies waft through the air and tease your taste buds.  Yes, this charming bakery is definitely a piece of paradise right here in Dallas.

And that’s really what Society Bakery owner Roshi Muns is trying to achieve; a paradise of sorts in her Lakewood neighborhood and throughout the DFW metroplex.

She’s working to accomplish that goal by lending an active, helping hand to her business’s namesake: society. The bakery’s motto of “Be Good to Your Sweet Tooth and Be Good to Society” is backed up by donations to over 100 charities, schools and organizations in the last year alone.

“Society Bakery believes in giving back to the community.  When local charities and schools ask us for help, we answer ‘yes’ almost 100 percent of the time,” Muns said.

There have been so many “yeses” in the forms of luscious whoopie pies and mouth-watering cupcakes that she hasn’t even assigned a retail value to all of last year’s donations.

“We donate every day. Thousands of dollars a month… One of our decorators said it felt like every third order she was doing was a donation,” she said.

Muns’ latest cause is the Interfaith Housing Coalition Drive, taking place at the Greenville location. For every two items donated from the school supply list, Society Bakery will give you a free cupcake of your choosing. (Up to 3 cupcakes per donation).  The event will run through August 17th and the supplies will go to help East Dallas children.

Helping those in need, like the children who will benefit from the school supply donations, should be a large focus of any local business, according to Muns.

“It makes me sick to think of how much money is wasted by people and especially businesses,” she said. “Those same dollars-or even time wasted-could make a very big difference in the life of a child-who without help might fall through the cracks and become a detriment to society, when they could have gone a different direction with guidance or resources and become an asset to society. We hope we can inspire other businesses and people in the community to give back.”

And she wants people and businesses to know that helping others can really be a piece of cake.

“It is really very easy. You do not need to be wealthy to be philanthropic-and by all means if you are wealthy, then you should be philanthropic,” she said.
