Gingerbitz opened in May 2014. The Zuckerts—Karen originally from Nyack, NY, Andrew from Old Greenwich—met in Chicago, where he had been working and she studying fine arts at the Art Institute of Chicago (bookbinding, print-making, painting). The name ‘Gingerbitz’ is drawn—in part (Karen is known for her gingerbread cookies)—from Andrew’s father. Karen fondly recalls Donald Zuckert: “He gave me a nickname, ‘Bits,’ and when Andy and I were married he changed the S to Z for ‘Zuckert,’ and so when I needed a name, it was ‘Gingerbitz.’ It’s a term of endearment.” Her father-in-law passed away in October 2013. “He for years had been pushing me to move this out of my home and open up a place,” Karen recalled.
