Companion said the new facility will house the company’s baking operations, a new cafe, a baking school and private event space. The 60-seat, 2,500-square-foot cafe will serve breakfast and lunch daily, while the baking school will have classes designed for both the novice and serious home baker, the company said.
“We are excited about this next chapter for Companion,” said Josh Allen, founder and owner of Companion. “The new facility will not only be a terrific place for our staff to work but also one that provides us the means to truly respect our craft. If we can build a place our companions are proud and excited to come to work at, imagine how much better our breads and our company can be? Bread responds to the temperament of the baker — and happy bakers do make better bread.”
