Barb Talevich, the bakery’s owner and president, said the ranking is a thrill for her and her staff. “What a great honor this is for us, especially since we will be celebrating our 20th anniversary in two weeks,” she said. “I have lived in Akron all my life and am so proud to be a part of this wonderful community. I feel truly blessed and honored to be working with such a great team! Our staff works so hard and I am so happy for them to receive this recognition outside of the Akron community.” The website said it selected 200 of the nation’s 6,700 bakeries and then narrowed the list further for the final ranking. The West Side Bakery also was ranked on the website’s list of the top 50 wedding-cake bakeries earlier this year. (JANUARY 2015)
