Torrington’s newest baker is one of the many entrepreneurs to use some of that economic development money to start a family business. Ezdan Fluckiger started the Bread Doctor as a home business after taking an entrepreneur course three years ago at Eastern Wyoming College. Goshen County EDC assisted with tuition. About 18 months ago, business was booming. Fluckiger decided he needed a commercial kitchen. He found a downtown building for the right price, but it needed attention. The awning was sagging, the windows were old. Fluckiger applied for a grant through Goshen EDC that helped him buy specialty baking equipment, repair the awning, replace the windows and hang a shiny, new sign. In addition to his wife and daughter, Fluckiger hired three part-time workers. Revenues have been higher than he expected. “The truth is, it’s been a tremendous success,” Fluckiger said. “We have people coming from Scottsbluff every day we are open to eat lunch in our store.”
