The Bakery Life: Breaking Ground on Flour & Co Berkeley

8 Jul

Lookie here…now doesn’t this look like a little old permit for which we’ve been waiting months!?!?permit

I (and probably you too) was starting to wonder if these coming soon signs would ever come down.

Coming soon...

Coming soon…

Wonder no more.  The ground has been broken!  But first…some pictures of the kitchen empty (after lots of sorting, moving, and trashing).  Phew!

And the retail area with lots of stuff (but not for long!)…

Check out this progress!  Impressive for only a couple weeks.  Eeek!  This is moving quickly!  Exciting and terrifying!  So much to do.

What’s next??  Well, with an early fall opening date, we’re diving into the project with details like ordering lights and tile to planning the logistics of baking in this kitchen.  Opposite ends of the spectrum, really.  Stay tuned for more on the play by play.

I’ll leave you with the cutest picture of them all.  Andy, helping us with the floor plans.

We can’t wait to meet you all in the fall!  Oh – and we really can’t wait to share all of our baked goodies…warm and gooey out of the oven!
