“The city is slowly rebuilding itself as you see with the downtown area and new businesses coming in,” Stream said. “I’m excited to be a part of the growth.”
Once open, the store will offer specialty cakes, cookies, fudge and caramel apples, among other items. She said said the business will offer a variety of fresh cupcakes in several flavors that she expects to be a big draw for customers.
“It’s definitely going to be more of the decorated cakes you see on TV,” Stream said of the bakery’s specialty.
Stream will largely be running the business on her own, although she will likely have some help from family members. Initially, the store will likely be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., although it could remain open a couple hours later each day depending on the demand from customers.
The business will likely be open six days a week, and closed on Sundays, but Stream said she has not yet made a final decision on what days the bakery will be open.
While she had initially considered a building on Mitchell Boulevard, she said the East Main Street location seemed to be a better fit, and has enough traffic nearby to help draw in new customers.
“The building is actually in really great shape,” she said.
A former medical assistant, Jazzy Cakes & More will be Stream’s first business.
