As a business owner for over 25 years, Annette Goodrum knew how to survive and succeed as
an entrepreneur. She now had a new goal of creating her own successful bakery. Always at home
in the kitchen, Annette decided to follow her dream of becoming a pastry chef. In 2013 she was
accepted into the Patisserie program at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, France. Upon her arrival in
Paris, her passion began to take shape. She completed the basic, intermediate and superior
courses to receive her letter of completion. But she knew she needed to learn more. Annette went
on to study at the French Pastry School in Chicago, Illinois while still running her business. She
made a crucial decision in the realization of her dream and sold her business. Annette went all in
on creating a bakery unlike anything the Brazosport area has ever seen. With a little more school
(Texas Coffee School-Barista 2016 and French Pastry School, Chicago, Illinois Boulangerie
Diploma 2016) and some critical planning, Annette was ready to take the next step.
And so Paris-Texas Bakery was born. Construction began in early 2016 and the bakery opened for business October 2017.
