It’s not the best time to open a new business, but a new local bakery called Mi Casita is thriving in their opening days despite the COVID-19 pandemic.
Located on Hargrove Road, Mi Casita opened 11 days ago in the middle of the national shut down, but they’ve found plenty of success from new customers eager for sweet treats.
The bakery makes breads, cookies, cakes and other pastries locals may be unfamiliar with — until they take a bite and are blown away by the deliciousness.
Owner Ismael Arroyo said he’s sleeping just three or four hours a night because he’s baking almost 16 hours a day so the bakery’s shelves stay stocked.
The long hours bother him, he said, because he’s doing what he loves.
“Cause really I love what I do like I’ve been telling people every time that I bake I feel the same way as the first time take the first bread out of the oven so this is what I love and so what I tell all the people you have to find what you love so you can be happy,” Arroyo said.
Arroyo isn’t the only one baking, though. His wife and four children are helping out and working at the store too.
It is a family business that they encourage people to try if they want a different bakery experience than they have ever had.
