Carrie Chesto (owner of Sugar Bee’s Bakery) has had a passion for the kitchen and baking from a young age. Her mother still tells the story of how after Sesame Street she would watch Julia Child’s The French Chef. After high school Carrie went on to pursue an Associate’s Degree from The Scottsdale Culinary Institute. Upon graduation from culinary school, she worked in various restaurants and hotels in Arizona and Colorado before moving to Las Vegas.

In 2008 she became the executive pastry chef at Tom Colicchio’s Craftsteak in MGM Grand. In 2012 the opportunity presented itself to acquire a small local bakery that is now known as Sugar Bee’s Bakery!!! We currently have a small team of highly talented individuals making up a total of 81 years of total hospitality experience which have all graduated from culinary schools all around the nation.
