Jackie Huebbe has been passionate about baking for as long as she can remember. After being discouraged by friends and family to start a career in baking and pastry immediately after high school, she went to school for marketing and graphic design. After graduating, she spent her days in a cubicle and her evenings in her home kitchen working out her cubicle-shaped frustrations. By 2010, she began working nights and weekends in area bakeries and cafes to gain commercial kitchen experience.
In 2012, Jackie had the unique opportunity to rent commercial kitchen space by the hour, and SugarBot Sweet Shop was born. By 2014, she had graduated culinary school and moved into a brick-and-mortar storefront space full time. In 2015, SugarBot Sweet Shop expanded again, this time into a permanently purchased storefront in Saint Charles, Missouri. In 2018, Jackie expanded the business one more time by acquiring an old-fashioned soda fountain and ice cream parlor roughly a mile from the SugarBot location. She now operates both storefronts and manages a team of 10 (and growing) employees while hoarding all the sugar cookie orders for herself.
