In 1984, Kevin Maltz, at the age 26, wandered into the Fresh Sourdough Express and found himself in alignment with the core values and atmosphere of the warm and growing establishment. He read a sign on the side of the cash register: “HEAD BAKER NEEDED *INQUIRE WITHIN.” He saw this as a “sign,” and he applied. Not only did he get the job, but soon after, married the owner! Kevin immediately embraced the responsibilities and everything that went with joint ownership of this visionary growing concept. For over a quarter of a century, Kevin has mastered every aspect of the food service business. He was the head baker for several years, took on the role of lead chef, and worked his way into running the business. He continues to manage the bustling cafe in season; everything from soup to nuts when it comes to running a business with 25 employees.
Kevin and Donna also own and operate A Memorable Experience B&B in Homer as well as Always In Season Farmstead Vacation Rental Retreat in Hawaii and the couple find joy in help budding entrepreneurs obtain their dreams.
Kevin takes care of business! All the details that go into running and juggling several businesses’s at once. When he is not running the numbers, he is our working on the farmstead; harvesting fruit and trimming trees or walking with Donna and their dogs in Nature.
