JASPER — A Celestine bakery will open a branch of its business in Jasper.
Southern Sweets Bakery LLC plans to open a storefront at 206 W. 8th St. in mid to late August.
Owner Terri Suddarth said the new, 500-square-foot location will be a retail store only. The baked goods will be made at the bakery in Celestine and transported to Jasper each morning.
The store in Jasper will offer many of the bakery’s most popular goods, but will not have all items sold at the Celestine bakery. Suddarth, who runs the business with her husband, Michael, said the store will sell a variety of breads, danishes and muffins and, on Thursday through Saturday, will sell doughnuts. Customers will be able to place and pick up orders at the Jasper location.
Southern Sweets has five employees but Suddarth is looking to hire two more bakers to help supply the new store.
Suddarth has more than three years of experience in the bakery business. Before moving to southern Indiana, she and Michael owned a bakery in New Palestine east of Indianapolis. The couple moved south in 2010 and opened the first location of Southern Sweets in Wickliffe. Suddarth said the bakery quickly outgrew the space near Patoka Lake and the business moved to its current home in Celestine in May 2011.
If things go well with the Jasper location, Suddarth said the business may expand to a larger space in Jasper.
“We’re starting out with baby steps at this point,” Suddarth said.
The Jasper location of Southern Sweets plans to be open from 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Southern Sweets can be reached at 389-2200.
