OAKMONT, Pa. -
The owners of Oakmont Bakery have a plan in the works to move into a space that’s double its current facility.
“At our current location, we have limited parking,” owner Marc Serrao told Channel 11’s news partners at TribLIVE
. “Production bakers and decorators have limited workspace. We aren't able to add equipment. Customers have a difficult time navigating through the retail area at busy times.”
reported that the proposed solution is to move the popular bakery's store and production from the heart of Oakmont’s business district to properties that the Serrao family owns at Hulton Road, across Third Street from Riverview High School. A lot needs to be done, though, before that can happen.
Serrao told TribLIVE
that he’s working to find homes for his tenants at the properties he wants to consolidate with 308 and 316 Hulton Road for the bakery expansion.
The new facility would be twice the size of the current bakery located on Allegheny Avenue and would have approximately 100 parking spaces.
“We are still in the preliminary planning stages,” Serrao told TribLIVE
. “My hope would be to start building next year.”
