A little BIt About Us
Like most great community projects, Sweet Side of the Moon Bakery and Café is truly a family tradition. It’s the brainchild and passion project of Terry and Malcolm MacLeod, a father and son team that knew deep down it was time for their hometown of Glace Bay and the surrounding communities to have something fresh and different.
Father and son joined forces to open the bakery in 2017, but the family tradition of serving the community runs far deeper than just a few years.
We called it The Sweet Side of the Moon to pay homage to Pink Floyd’s iconic album, The Dark Side of the Moon. Great memories of life and adventure with family and friends immediately come to mind, and that album is more than just music. For so many, it’s a soundtrack that will last for all time.
We’re not just building a business in Glace Bay – we’re from here. This is our family’s hometown, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. We saw the community needed business owners to trust the area could grow again, and attract people back that had to move away just to find work.
It’s about providing real community support, including training people just entering the workplace and offering support to young entrepreneurs. It takes all of us working together to build not just a better Sweet Side of the Moon, but a brighter future for everyone in Glace Bay and our surrounding communities.
That’s our focus: community first, leading the way for small business owners to understand just how unique our town is for so many people.
