Hive Bakery was founded in 2018 in Flower Mound, Texas. CEO and founder Haley Popp has had tremendous success despite being an outspoken liberal in a mostly conservative town.
Hive Bakery offers the usual bread, donuts, and cookies, but specializes in custom-made cakes.
After the Supreme Court decision that allowed states to make their own abortion laws, Popp began making cakes with the “My Body My Choice” slogan on them.
Trump supporters and Christian fundamentalists didn’t take to this lightly, threatening both Popp and the business itself.
Popp, whose vibrant red hair is instantly recognizable, has appeared on Food Network’s Halloween Wars and become, as her staff puts it, “Flower Mound famous.”
After receiving threats on Facebook, Popp began posting the names and the comments. Supporters have given her already thriving business a boost and nearly every day the bakery sells out before closing time.
Hive Bakery maintains a corporate office in Flower Mound, Texas.
