Greenville’s newest bakery is expected to be up and running toward the middle of next month.
The website for the Collin Street Bakery in Greenville indicates that the business is scheduled to open in “mid-February.”
The company recently conducted a job fair to find local employees and training is reported to be under way at the Collin Street Bakery headquarters in Corsicana.
Crews were busy during the weekend working on the exterior landscaping for the property and also doing some painting on the interior of the business.
A change in zoning for the project, from commercial district to planned development for the 1.465-acre tract on the north side of Interstate 30 and the east side of U.S. Highway 69/Moulton Street, was approved in March of last year by the Greenville City Council.
The bakery/confectionary will be housed in a 4,200 square foot building, with access from both U.S. Highway 69 and the Interstate 30 service road.
