Ma Baker’s (Old Grams) at the Airport
Dawson Creek Regional Airport
80 Vic Turner Airport Road
Dawson Creek, British Columbia V1G 0G1
It all started back in Vancouver Island where my mom and I ran a restaurant called McSwiggins in the Comox Valley. Our mission was to provide a breakfast and lunch restaurant with large home-cooked portions at a good price. We were very successful in this endeavour and ran for many years until my mom passed away. At this point, the restaurant was sold and I took a decade away from the restaurant business to do some much-needed soul searching. In the end, I realized that having a restaurant was what I always wanted to do and what my mom had trained me for. After moving to Dawson Creek, I had an opportunity to purchase the airport restaurant. As you all know this restaurant was called “Old Grams”, we decided not to change the name for the time being as this would provide some continuity for “Old Grams” existing patrons. Over the next year, it is my plan to slowly transition to the name of “Ma Bakers”. As you can guess this name is to honour my mom whose last name was Baker as well as the most amazing baker and person I have ever known.
