Centerville's Royal Bake Shop To Reopen 

Taken from a direct quote off the Royal Bake Shop Facebook Page;


"Keith and I have taken some time over the holidays to think about the direction we need to go with the Bakery. We greatly appreciate the patience of our customers during this time and thank you for the many kind words while we were closed.

We have had opportunities to sell, but the possibility of the purchasers taking the Bakery out of Centerville wasn't something that we wanted to see. The Royal Bake Shop has been in Centerville for over 70 years, and Keith and I feel that it should stay in Centerville.

So, we've decided to open back up. There will be some changes that will give us a little more time off, and simplify the operations. We will be open Tuesday through Friday 6am-3pm, and Saturdays 6am-Noon. We will continue to offer the variety of rolls and donuts like before, along with coffee cakes, pullaparts, cinnamon rolls, etc. There will be regular sized Zebra Donuts as well as the Giant Zebra Donuts (plain or decorated). We also will continue to make the English Muffin Toasting Bread. We will no longer be making buns or any other breads besides English Muffin Bread. We will continue to sell coffee and cold drinks, but we no longer have coffee shop seating.

We are very excited to be adding a selection of antiques provided by Rob and Michele Bendt that will be available for purchase! Rob and Michele also have an antique store in Beresford (Redezign), and we feel their antiques will be a wonderful addition to our store. This will also compliment other specialty stores in Centerville such as Walz to Walz Antiques and Collectibles, Luden's Treats and Treasures, and hopefully more Main Street shops in the future. We can all work together to bring a fun shopping experience to both locals and "out of towners"!

Our re-opening day will be Tuesday, February 7th at 6am. Keith, Sue and I look forward to seeing you soon!"
