After outgrowing its current location at 1436 Wealthy St., the Cakabakery announced plans to close its Eastown site and expand into an even larger 2,500-square-foot space at 919 E. Fulton Street.
“We really love the Uptown business districts and neighborhoods, so we wanted to make sure we could put down roots in this area,” says Jason Kakabaker, who co-owns the space alongside Peter Jacob. “This building is an investment in Cakabakery’s growth, and it will allow us to expand our offerings and serve more customers.”
The 2,500-square-foot building will allow The Cakabakery to increase production and expand operations, specializing in a variety of desserts, specialty cakes, custom cupcakes, cake pops, cookies, cheesecake and caramel corn.
When it opens at its new Fulton Street location on Nov. 23, the revamped bakery will have walk-in cooling units and freezers, as well as a larger kitchen that will offer more room for dessert tastings.
“We feel really fortunate to have the opportunity to find a permanent location in this neighborhood, and we are grateful for Colliers West Michigan’s help in finding this building,” says Jacob. “With this larger space, we’ll now be able to open earlier on Saturdays and serve up new desserts such as cinnamon rolls, more last-minute cakes and decorated cookies daily.”
This is the final week that the bakery will operate at its Eastown locale. Until the new site opens, Cakabakery will set up a pop-up shop at the Bluedoor Antiques
shop at 946 E. Fulton Street.
