AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - As companies continue to make Amarillo their home, some are taking a sweeter approach, with bakery businesses growing in the area.
The city's newest bakery, Nothing Bundt Cakes, just celebrated one month in Amarillo, hitting the ground running.
"This past Monday was our one month birthday," said Julie Doty, owner of Nothing Bundt Cakes in Amarillo. "It's been crazy busy. I mean, our guests are amazing. We're very blessed."
Doty says she was inspired to open a franchise location after visiting a location in Southlake, outside of Dallas.
"Ten years ago when I walked into the one in Southlake, I thought, 'this is too cute. The cakes are amazing and this is too cute,'" said Doty. "So, immediately, I went home and checked it out."
The company, which began in Las Vegas 20 years ago, has grown nationwide and throughout Texas. With the Panhandle region up for grabs, Doty grasped the opportunity.
"I've always looked into the Nothing Bundt Cakes franchise at least for the last five years and Amarillo was the last territory in Texas available," said Doty.
Nothing Bundt Cakes is not the only growing bakery in Amarillo.
Another new bakery coming to the area is Blue Crane Bakery.
According to building permits issued, it's moving into the vacant spot near SW 6th and Mississippi soon, marking another business along the historic Route 66 District. There is no word yet on an opening date.
Scratch Made Bakery, currently located near SW 6th and Tyler, is making a move to a bigger location.
Business owners say that as the company grows, they need more space, taking an opportunity to move into the Levine Building on Polk Street, currently undergoing renovations.
They expect to move to the new location in three to six months.
As for Doty, she's enjoying the experience that comes with bundt cakes.
"It's just, the business is just so fun," said Doty.
At this time, she does not have plans for a second location in Amarillo.
