MANASQUAN, NJ – 502 Bakery in Manasquan is working hard to provide for the township’s sweet tooth during the COVID-19 stay-at-home order. They are open Wednesday through Saturday from 9 am to 5 pm and Sundays from 9 am to 4 pm. The Bakery is part of Wingman Planning’s #SupportTheShore effort to promote small businesses in need of a little nudge during this time. The bakery this month made a generous donation of baked goods to Hackensack Meridian Health’s front line medical workers. 502 bakery is a scratch bakery featuring pies, scones, cookies, cakes, cupcakes as well as vegan and gluten-free selections and they are famous for award-winning Key Lime Pie.
Support the Shore was started by Wingman Planning CEO Tom Mirabella whose company is a full-service marketing firm located in Manasquan to offer free video services to help local businesses get the word out about their status to the public. In return for the video, Wingman Planning asks that those businesses make a small donation to local fire, police, EMS or frontline emergency workers.
“The pandemic hit, and our full-service marketing agency moved from working as a team of 12 in Manasquan to working from home,” Mirabella said. “I didn’t want to furlough or let anyone go, even though our clients have been impacted which in turn impacts us. I was watching companies all around us struggle and turn to layoffs and realized that we could help these businesses spread the word about what services they were offering to their customers.”
