Hearth founder Matt Quinlisk started his journey within the Colorado baking world by working as the pastry chef at Moxie Bread Co. in Louisville, where he worked with James Beard Award Outstanding Baker semifinalist Andy Clark.
During his time at Moxie, Matt developed a deep appreciation for sourcing and milling local Rocky Mountain grains, a practice he now brings to Hearth.
After his time at Moxie, Matt spread the goodness of Hearth by selling pastries, bread, and bagels wholesale to the city's best coffee shops and carb-loving customers at local farmers' markets, growing a dedicated fan base along the way.
