Local pastry chef Kaya Tate is taking her successful business, Hopscotch Bakery, to the next level. She’s rehab’ing a building at 802 W John St., in Champaign, IL to house her new bakery and cafe. We’re impressed by Kaya’s business results and thrilled that she chose First Leaf Capital to provide financing for this expansion.
