New this year in the contest is the opportunity for a local business to answer the correct question and receive a free catered lunch for up to 12 people in their office, or enjoy a free lunch party at the bakery.
The contest was first held in 2012 with the winner getting free lunch for all of 2013.
“The idea was born from a way to give back to the local community and also as a good way for us to get valuable feedback on ways to improve our services to our customers,” Avon Bakery owner Dan Trush said. “With such an overwhelming response from local patrons the contest has been turned into an annual event. We are really excited to be continuing this again in 2014!”
