“It’s been getting better and better but we need more seating and a bigger kitchen,” Colin said. “Weekends are just crazy. I think we do need it to have more seating to be able to accommodate more people and groups of people.”
It also helps that Tout de Sweet will be able to expand without having to relocate. The bakery approached its landlord when Gaylord relocated to River Road last October. The expansion will take up a portion of the former Gaylord space.
“We asked because we saw it as an opportunity to expand next door. We don’t have to relocate and we’re pretty much doubling our space,” Colin said.
Tout de Sweet will be opening its online shop at the same time as the expanded bakery. The expansion will also allow for a bigger kitchen and bigger display case. The macarons, mini mousse cakes and seasonal items will remain and a few newer items will likely be added to the menu.
