Since our humble beginings at the Rural St. shop in 2011, Sugarjones Bakery has taken great pride in offering beautiful and delectable sweet treats. We continue to be a trendsetter and innovator in the world of specialty desserts. We’re dedicated to our dream of always providing our customers an exciting and memorable experience.

Sugarjones » About Us


Sugarjones opened Rockford’s first dessert bakery in 2011 in a tiny location on Rural Street in Rockford, IL. Kathryn Pomerene, our founder, was an avid hobby baker and cook who took a chance on a dream. Together with her husband (who did most of the build out) and mom (the frosting maven), she worked tireless hours to make sure the quality was always top notch.

One month after opening, a glowing review in the coveted Christmas edition of our local paper catapulted this small bakery to the must-have treats in town.

Practically overnight, Sugarjones has become the go-to place for delicious cupcakes, custom cakes & cookies and a wide variety of extraordinary desserts. 10 years later, our Rural Street location is behind us but fondly remembered. When people see that familiar brown box and logo, they know they’re in for a real treat.

We enjoy looking to the future and maintaining the most amazing quality and freshness of all our wonderful products.

We are constantly innovating and ahead of the food trends. Though cupcakes are still the hot item in our case, we have many customers who stop in specifically for our tiramisu, beautiful French macarons or giant sandwich cookies.

Sugarjones believes it is important to use local vendors for our supplies when we can as well as giving back to the community who supports us.

Stop in and see why we truly do make the world a better place, one cupcake at a time.


Here at Sugarjones Inc., we feel that supporting our community is as vital as freshly baked cupcakes.
