Grand Central Bakery continues to grow in the Northwest, with locations in Seattle and Portland. On Wednesday, October 17, the bakery-café chain announced its latest opening in the Wedgwood neighborhood of Seattle.
Grand Central Wedgwood offers a full line of artisan breads, hand-made pastries, fresh made-to-order sandwiches, soups, salads, and coffee and espresso drinks featuring Victrola Coffee. Customers can also purchase frozen pot pies and pizza dough from the bakery’s U-bake freezer for quick meals at home. The bakery’s U-bake line includes frozen fruit pies, buttery pie crusts and puff pastry, and cookies for home baking.
“We are so excited to have another place to connect with customers who may have been getting our bread for years at markets, but don’t yet know our wonderful pastries, coffee, and sandwiches,” says Grand Central retail director Lara Trepanier. “Wedgwood is a vibrant community of families, parks, schools, and other small businesses – we already feel so welcomed and we’re happy to be part of it.
A fifth Seattle location will open next spring in Wallingford, another bustling residential neighborhood in Seattle. This is part of the bakery’s expansion mode, which comes on the eve of its 30th year in business.
“We always believed in business as a force for good and that growth is what fuels our mission,” says Grand Central Bakery CEO Claire Randall. “As we grow, we can serve more customers high-quality, sustainable and local ingredients and increase the capacity of the regional food system, while offering fair wages and investing in communities.”
