The Story

Divvies Bakery is the magical land of “YES!” for many with dietary restrictions to peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, or dairy, and everyone who simply embraces the plant based or vegan lifestyle.

It started as a labor of love. Mark and Lori Sandler’s youngest son, Benjamin, was born with severe food allergies to just about every food. His first birthday ‘cake’ was Lori’s stroke of sheer genius: a candle on top of a glistening tower of shaved ice. Benjamin was so enthralled with this frozen ‘treat’ that he didn’t even give the decadent chocolate cake that everyone else was eating a passing glance. But Lori knew that the appeal of her shaved ice cake would meet the same fate as Frosty and melt away as Benjamin got older.

By the time Benjamin was in school and his friends started to notice that he wasn’t eating what everyone else was, Lori became a mom on a mission to “turn the (designated lunch) tables” on food allergies. At the time, the allergen-free ‘treats’ on the market were less than tasty with unappetizing packaging.  This prompted Lori to start thinking outside the “bakery box” to create recipes for the most scrumptious sweets that Benjamin and his friends had ever tasted. And she did it all without nuts, eggs, or dairy.

With Lori’s cookies in hand, Benjamin quickly became the go-to guy to bring desserts for class parties, supply the best after school snacks in the neighborhood, and stock the dugout at his team’s baseball games. He was the kid with the goods, and he happily divvied up his treats to his friends. Lori made plenty – that was the whole point; these sweet treats were made to share. Lori’s mouth-watering, highly coveted snacks accomplished the Sandler Family’s mission to create delicious snacks packed with flavor from high-quality vegan and nut-free ingredients that Benjamin could share with his family and friends.

Mark and Lori didn’t stop there. They wanted to make sure that EVERY child with food allergies to nuts, eggs and dairy could walk into their classroom with something safe for all to eat. That vision is what led them to start Divvies.

Whether you have food allergies, or are just craving something sweet, Divvies safely opens up a whole new world of flavor, fun and freedom. Anytime Divvies is the star attraction on the menu, everyone can relax and enjoy a worry-free celebration. 

Divvies – it’s a one-for-me-and one-for-you equation with sweet treats that let EVERYONE share the magic, and say “YES” to our scrumptious, safe snacks.

Bon Appétit!
