Looks like another big name is coming to the greater Los Angeles area, with the arrival later this year of none other than TLC’s own Cake Boss.
Local sleuth Toddrickallen landed first contact regarding the West Coast expansion of Buddy Valastro’s growing bakery empire, noticing some paperwork up at a former retail space along touristy Third Street Promenade. A call to the corporate location of Carlo’s Bake Shop — the actual name of the company from Cake Boss — didn’t reveal any details, but if you look at the chain’s Facebook page they recently added a location page for Third Street Promenade. So, there you go.
The move to that stretch of Santa Monica is a smart one for a company as brand-aware as Valastro’s is. The neighborhood is also increasingly becoming a fast casual haven, with the likes of Ippudo Ramen coming in soon as well. No word on an official opening, so stay tuned.
