Started as a side project and creative outlet for owner Sarah Joy Hays, CounterspaceBR has grown from her kitchen to the MidCity Makers Market to White Star Market to a standalone location on Perkins Road near Acadian Thruway. Hays has insisted throughout on maintaining a commitment to producing the most delicious cakes, cookies, and breakfast items.
“I’m extremely grateful for the way neighbors, friends, strangers, and regulars came together through our Kickstarter last month to help fund the renovation project and afford us the ability to furnish the room as well,” Hays said, regarding the newly finished construction. She added, “That sort of capital was just the boost we needed to grow to serve our community better.”
Through each evolution of her business, Sarah Joy Hays has been committed to the idea that CounterspaceBR is not limited to being a food-based business, but can be a pathway to building community within Baton Rouge. The bakery and event space located at 3753 Perkins Road will function as the fullest expression of this idea to date. The room will be available for birthday parties, baby showers, cooking classes, mother-daughter teas, pop-ups, and special dinners of all kinds. CounterspaceBR and Hays look forward to years of delivering Baton Rouge’s favorite cookies, cakes
