It has been a whirlwind around here the past month! In a nutshell, this is what is happening with us! We are EXPANDING! We will be welcoming “Our Town Cafe” to our bakery, after the first of the year! Our Town Cafe will be a fabulous coffee shop and cafe! We could not be more excited to welcome them to Pleasant View and to the village!

I’ve been asked multiple times when we would do coffee like a coffee shop, but that just isn’t something I could take on while making cakes. We know that this will be a great addition to our little bakery!

To go into more detail and in an effort to be completely transparent with you, our amazing customers, here is our story. My husband and I have been going down the long road of infertility and intense fertility treatments for over a year now. This is something that is taking up quite a bit of our time and energy and we need more of both of these to continue down this path! So, in an effort to help us pursue our desire to expand our family, we decided to re-structure our business plan; to allow us to achieve both of our dreams, keeping our bakery and having a child. We are making this possible with expanding with a coffee shop in our retail space! That doesn’t sound like we will have more time or energy with an expansion, right? Well, we will have both with the plan we have put into motion. With adding Our Town Cafe to the mix, our friend, Anthony, will have his coffee shop in the front of our shop, freeing us up from the retail end of the bakery. We will continue making birthday cakes and doing weddings, and we will do baking for him in the kitchen in the back of the shop. You will still be able to get most of our baked goods when you come in for a cup of coffee or dessert after lunch, and cakes and pies ready to go! While, you may not be able to catch us in the shop all the time, you will be able to reach us by phone, email, or Facebook to place orders! We aren’t going anywhere!! We are just freeing us up from the retail demands to be able to focus on our family.

The plan is to be business as usual until Christmas! We will then be closed for a couple short months to get everything redesigned and setup for Our Town Cafe, and re-open March 1, 2015. We are so very thankful to our customers who are so loyal! We love being part of your lives and celebrating milestones with you! You have made us successful and for that we are so grateful! Now, who is excited for a great cup of coffee? Let’s get excited! Our Town Cafe will be a great addition to our bakery and community! Great things are coming, and we are so thrilled to be a part of it! If you have any questions, feel free to email us! melinda@brownsugarcakeroom.com
