The bakery will serve many types of donuts, bagels and cookies, and also several types of breads, muffins and muffins, said Sprague, who hails from upstate New York and has lived in Cadiz since 2004.
“My brother was in the service and he retired here, and he told me how great it was,” said Sprague. “And it is, it’s very nice.”
The bakery will also serve cupcakes, brownies, fudges, and wedding and other occasion cakes, and they will also serve other breakfast foods and beverages, said Sprague, who added that it won’t just be a “donut shop.”
Sprague, a registered nurse for 20 years, said a lot of people have told her that she needs to open a bakery because she has been doing cakes for people for quite a while. She thinks that now is a good time to do exactly that.
“And there’s nothing here in the city of Cadiz that has a drive-through,” Sprague said. “The closest is McDonald’s at I-24.”
The driveway and some of the landscaping have yet to be completed, and the furnace, wiring and gas will also have to be completed, said Sprague, who noted that she tried to “keep everything local.” She also said she has five inspections left before she can open.
Currently the two owners are Sprague and her sister Jo Ann Reed, and the bakery employs her other sister Ruth Gardner and her husband Michael Sprague.
“It’s pretty much going to be a family operation,” said Sprague. “And hopefully, we’ll get bigger and be able to employ some people in Trigg County.”
