Joan's GF Great Bakes seems to be charging forward on gluten-free bagel power! Makers of outstanding bagels and English muffins as well as other ready-to-bake goods including pizza, Joan's recently made inroads into Big Apple health food stores (Health Nuts at 1208 2nd Avenue in Manhattan and 211-35 26th Avenue in Queens as well as Fit Food at 23 Nelson Avenue in Staten Island), made its packaging more convenient, and opened up a new kitchen in Bellmore, New York, where it will host a Grand Opening Celebration starting at 11am on Sunday, June 29, 2008. Members of The New York City Celiac Disease Meetup Group (NYCCDMG) plan to attend.

Another gluten-free pizza maker, Connecticut's Still Riding Pizza, recently got good coverage from News12 Connecticut.

Want to launch a gluten-free business of your own? The New York Times recently got a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the decision-making behind the launch of "Wicked Good Company, which makes a line of all-natural (no corn syrup and gluten free) gourmet condiments, sauces and dips."

MEANWHILE On the West Coast, Danna Korn and her soon-to-be hubby Bryan Van Noy have launched SonicBoom, a firm that consults with corporations to improve employee health. It just got a write-up from the San Diego Business Journal Online.

Thanks to Michael Thorn for the SonicBoom lead.
