Tim Foley knows the value of people.
The owner of Bit of Swiss knows the artisan bakery he and his wife have operated the past two decades would not be the popular attraction it is today without the loyalty and support of his family, staff and customers.
This is why, when customers enter Bit of Swiss Bakery in Stevensville, they shake the owner’s hand. Even though the southwest Michigan staple has expanded to new locations all over Michiana, Foley still finds it necessary to greet the people who have frequented the business for years.
And, despite his successes, Foley said he is always learning and practicing ways to make his baking and business better.
“You have to listen to the customers and find out what they liked and what recommendations they have,” Foley said.
