After purchasing Celebrations Bakery two years ago, owners Amber and Joe Owens are ready to expand their business. In a few weeks Celebrations will open a second location in the Spokane Valley to better serve their current and future customers.
The new store, located on the corner of 4th and Sullivan, is where Joe and Amber originally wanted to open a bakery three years ago. When leasing the space didn't work out they decided to purchase Celebrations in the Garland District.
“I had been baking out of my home for a long time,” said Amber. “By word of mouth alone I was busy.”
“We put it all on the line,” said Joe. The risk of purchasing Celebrations paid off, and the business has continued to grow and expand since they took over in 2011. Celebrations used to serve only cupcakes, but now offers cake pops, cookies and custom order cakes for all occasions.
