New Oakmont Bakery Opens Tomorrow! See Inside Today
The long-awaited new 19K+ square foot bakery opens Tuesday 2/5 with a ribbon cutting. See crews put on the finishing touches.
For months, fans of Oakmont Bakery have been eagerly awaiting the opening of the new 19,500 square foot facility that the owners hope will take the bakery from one of the best bakeries in town, to a destination attraction. Guess what?
The wait is over: the grand opening is Tuesday, February 5!
Bakery owner Marc Serrao shared some photographs with Sparkt of workers putting on the finishing touches in time for tomorrow's ribbon cutting at the new bakery, which is located at the base of the Hulton Bridge at Hulton Road and "Sweet Street," named just for them.
As Marc told us when Marty took a tour of the construction site earlier this month, the bakery is designed with the customer and the employees in mind. Outside, the al fresco cafe is ready for customers when the weather warms up.
Inside, as promised, the customer area is massive, highlighted by floor to ceiling windows. In the shot below, in the foreground is one end of a long row of display cases that will be full of fan favorites starting tomorrow. In the background you can a huge great-room and cafe, furnished with tables and chairs where customers will be able to sit and enjoy coffee and a pastry. Look closely in the far background and you can see the 16 foot fireplace with four 60-inch video monitors above. "We're gonna show how wedding cakes are made, how cookie production goes at Christmas time," explained Marc.
Equipment is being moved today into the work side of the bakery, where the baking space is double the size of the old bakery. "The customers are going to love the new space but the people who benefit the very most are the employees those of us who work behind the scenes," predicts Marc.
