The Oh My Goodness Wexford story

Oh My Goodness Wexford is a Wexford based business founded by myself, Allie O'Leary, during the pandemic.

I started baking properly in 2015 after I had my first child. I did lots of research into feeding babies/children and realised how much sugar is in so many products. I hate all the hidden sugars, especially when artificial sweeteners are added instead, which in my opinion are just as unhealthy. So I started looking into baking myself. I found so many recipes online, lots of which I could adjust to make them the way I wanted and I realised that actually snacks with no refined sugar in could taste just as good as sugary treats. And that's when I found my love of baking.

I continued baking for my second-born and then when they both started school, the idea for my own baking business was formed. I knew there would be a lot of people out there who would love for either themselves or their families to be eating the kind of snacks I was baking but just wouldn't have the time or the interest to bake themselves. So I completed a Start Your Own Business course, and an EHAI (Environmental Health Association of Ireland) Primary Course in Food Safety, and then, in November 2020, Oh My Goodness Wexford was born. I originally started by keeping my orders to local people only but as my business grew, I decided to grow with it. So in September 2021 I decided to expand. I contacted a courier company and set up an account with them and I now offer delivery all over Ireland. And who knows, maybe one day I'll expand again to Europe, watch this space.
