Take-and-bake dough biz to close
After about two years since it first arose on the Rochester scene, a take-and-bake frozen dough business will soon close its doors.
Ads and announcements this week say that U-Bake is closing with a possible final day of around June 15. Here's some from one of those messages:
We will continue to offer BIG SAVINGS to you through approximately mid June, 2012. Please redeem any U-Bake, Rochester gift cards promptly. Stock up and enjoy those savings! It has been our pleasure to serve you, and, as always, thank you for your business!
U-Bake, which is owned by Dianna Baker is located in a 2,000-square-foot spot in the Crossroads Plaza anchored by Walgreens . That's the center where Maid-Rite recently closed and Jimmy John's gearing up to open.
The concept of U-Bake is all about conveneince. It has about 20 freezers full of frozen, bake-at-home products, including about 59 kinds of cookies, about 30 types of breads, 18 pies, 15 pizza crusts, croissants and cinnamon rolls.
It also carried specialty meats and cheeses from around Minnesota.
I'll check to see if I can find out any more on this.
