New bakery aims to satisfy public's cravings

A new bakery is set to open in Bretzville in early August.

Constant Cravings LLC, located at 5636 State Road 162, plans to open Aug. 5, owner Tricia Petry said, pending the completion of work on the building. Petry and her husband, Kevin, of Kyana will run the business together with a few part-time employees.

The couple has been working to prepare the space in Bretzville, formerly El Mortero Mexican Restaurant, for three months.

The business originated about a year ago when Tricia Petry began selling cakes, cupcakes and special-order items she baked and decorated in her home. When Petry put information about the business on Facebook, word of the bakery spread “like wildfire,” she said.

Petry then decided to expand to a new location.

The business plans to be open from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Petry hopes the business will attract a breakfast crowd as passersby commute to work. The bakery will serve breakfast sandwiches, biscuits and gravy and baked goods like doughnuts, danishes and cinnamon rolls. The business will continue to offer decorated cakes, cupcakes and other special-order items.

Petry said she plans to expand the business to include café service in six months to a year. She also hopes to add a light lunch menu of soup and sandwiches.

Though Petry has experience working in several restaurant establishments, this is her first time owning a business.

“I’ve baked my whole life and it’s always been an interest to me, so we decided to try it,” Petry said.
