It is time, whether we're ready or not, to open a bakery in Omaha. Along with my brother Seth and our father, we have been working hard to get our new location up and running. We still have a lot of work yet to do but we are making good progress. Fortunately for us it was a bakery before so there are some things that we can work with. Where is it you ask? 92nd and Pacific in Countryside Village surrounded by like tenants and a nice neighborhood. We are "the neighborhood bakery" after all and this is why we felt that this location would fit us perfectly. We will bake and serve the same great breads, pastries and cakes that we have at our two Lincoln locations and will have sandwiches, soups and salads to go.
It has been difficult for us to find time to work because on top of our normal baking we attend 4 farmers' markets We used to get one day off and now that day has become building/moving/painting day. I hope that all of our hard work will pay off and everyone that visits Le Quartier Omaha will be happy with what we've done, especially our bakery goodies!
When will it open? Hmmm, good question. I am hoping to be open sometime in the first half of September, 2010. Exact date will be coming.
I'd also like to thank:
Henry and Elenor Pauls (Aunt and Uncle)
Amy Dishman (designer, wife of one of my bakers)
Sarah Curley Quiring (my brother's wife)
