It takes a village…!

Movin Up TownMany of you, I’m sure, are familiar with the African proverb “It takes a village to raise a child“.  I think we can safely say that it also takes a “village” to ready, move and reorganize a business in 5 days.

We are so excited to begin our new adventure as Baked Dessert Cafe and Gallery in our newly renovated, beautifully bright, historic location at 4 C Bay Street.  Still in the heart of Berlin, just across the street from Berlin’s Town Hall and a hop, skip and a jump from the historic Atlantic Hotel, we are thrilled to continue to serve this wonderful community and its many visitors.

Our plan to close one location on a Saturday and reopen at the new location just 5 days later, at times, seemed overly optimistic, particularly considering the fact that our new home had to undergo significant renovations.  All of our permitting, electric, plumbing, interior, signage and promotional information had to be reworked, our equipment and furnishings moved, reconfigured and reorganized.  The list could go on and on.

We couldn’t have succeeded without the help and support of our “tribe” of family and friends and  we are grateful to this “village” of commerce and contractors who made our opening possible.  Words are just not enough, but “Thank You”!  As far as the contractors are concerned, we highly recommend each one and appreciate their professionalism, timeliness and particularly their fair pricing and flexibility.
