A new era for local Mishawaka bakery
ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. -- West End Bakery closed its doors back in June and was later bought by two business owners who wanted to keep the tradition alive.
“They didn’t want to see the tradition lost, and they kind of grew up in this area so they’ve been coming here since they been little and they just thought it’d be great to continue on with the tradition,” Dave Price, the General Manager of West End Bakery said.
The bakery, a community staple for many years is now under new ownership and has reopened.
The bakery will be offering much of the same baked goods as before, like donuts, cakes, cookies, and other pastries.
Price said the recipes for the baked goods haven’t changed and they’ve been working with the previous owners to get it just right for the community.
“Greg and Les that did all the baking, Greg the owner is going to be here to help us. The girls that have worked here for years that did the cakes and everything, they’ve come back and they’re staying with us to help us. They’re going to be working here, it should be the same, maybe just add a few things,” Price said.
The pastries that everyone has grown to love will be the same, but customers can look forward to some new services. For starters, the bakery will now accept credit cards and will offer to serve coffee.
West End Bakery will be open on Wednesday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sundays from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m.
