Josephine was founded by Jean Charles, who is from France. The concept was born out of three issues: his wife’s gluten intolerance, his long-time wish to open a retail bakery here in the US, and his daughter’s name, Josephine. Jean Charles’s previous experience working as a store manager in a bakery led him to question why it was so difficult to find tasty fresh treats to-go for those with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity.
