About the owner:
Meghan Ryan has been interested in baking and pastry for as long as anyone can remember. In high school, she spent many afternoons baking items for family and friends while dreaming of one day opening her own place. Meghan is a trained savory chef who moved to Napa, California where she tried her hand at chocolate for the first time … she instantly fell in love. After a few years away, Meghan found herself back in her hometown of Chicago and working at Veruca. Meghan was the lead chocolatier and general manager for three years, creating and conceptualizing many of the pieces in the line today. Meghan became the owner in 2018, fulfilling her dream of one day owning her own place. Today you can find her in the kitchen helping with production or creating new products, which is her favorite part of the job.
