Agostina Alvarez and Valentina Udabe both left Argentina for love.

Their friendship turned into a partnership with the creation of Tina’s Bakery, an Argentine bakery that was founded on the Argentine tradition of sharing food with family and friends.

Valentina and Agostina, owners and founders of The Tina’s Bakery located in Tanger Outlets, didn’t move to Park City thinking they would become owners of a small business.
Valentina is from Misiones, Argentina and runs the savory side of the business. She officially moved to Park City in 2013 with her husband and started to make empanadas as a hobby. The recipe was taught to her by her mom and grandma.
Agostina, the sweets and desserts master, came to Utah from Buenos Aires, Argentina, five and a half years ago. She moved to Utah for family and left a career as a lawyer. “It was super difficult. The beginning was really tough, but then I just fell in love with the mountains.”
