New Bakery in Town: Moe’s Breads

Melissa McCurrey and her husband, David McCurrey, are co-owners of Moe’s Breads, 20 W. Wall St.

Melissa McCurrey, Fort Scott, worked at 5-Corners Mini Mart before opening her new business, Moe’s Breads.

A random request from a customer started a new career for her.

“I was eating zucchini bread, from my Grandma Baguss’ recipe, at 5-Corners and a random customer asked if I could make a loaf of it,” McCurrey said. “It got bigger from there. I started baking two years ago. A year ago we were selling muffins at 5-Corners. On Dec. 18th I opened at the new storefront at 20 W. Wall Street.”

“Darcy Smith (5-Corners owner) encouraged me to start,” McCurrey said.
