Warren Brown walked away from a secure job as a federal litigator four years ago to pursue a less stressful career as a baker. Today, he owns Cake Love Bakery and Love Cafe in Washington, D.C., and will soon be the owner of two more bakeries in Maryland.

Brown, just one of Inc.com's 26 Most Fascinating Entrepreneurs, is setting his sights on expanding his three-year old bakery, Cake Love. The lawyer turned baker is about to expand his D.C.-based business into Rockville and Silver Spring, with the help of SBA guaranteed financing.

According to Brown, this is just the beginning -- he'd like to see a "string of Cake Love bakeries in major U.S. cities."
