Bet’a Bread Bakery & Deli was the small business spotlighted at the June 27 Lackawanna County Commissioners Meeting. This locally owned business has been in operation since 2010 in Clarks Summit. Owner Michael Bonczar is a self-taught, scratch baker, studying various dough recipes and handling techniques. Bet’a, which has a total of four employees, offers 18 different kinds of bread and is open Tuesday through Saturday. Bonczar sells his breads at local farmers markets from June through November, which generates half the revenue for the business. From left, are Commissioner Jerry Notarianni, Commissioner Laureen A. Cummings, Bonczar, and Commissioner Patrick M. O’Malley. photo
