Grand Central Bakery’s Friday Opening Will Benefit Two Local Charities
When Grand Central Bakery holds its grand opening of its new Burien location this Friday, Aug. 20th, it will donate a portion of the opening day’s proceeds to two local charities – the Highline Area Food Bank and the Highline Schools Foundation for Excellence.
Doors are scheduled to open Friday at 7am, with closing time set for 6pm.
The bakery is located at 626 SW 152nd Street.
This will be the company’s third location in the Seattle area.
According to a press release:
“Grand Central chose Burien because it is a burgeoning neighborhood that’s home to some great family businesses such as Eat Local, Hans’ German Sausage & Deli, Carniceria Zacatecas, Tin Room, Osteria da Primo, and Angelo’s.
The bakery-café will offer the same menu items that have become so popular at its other locations including handmade pastries and desserts, daily soups, hot and cold sandwiches. Whether it’s a fresh fruit Danish or a tuna melt made with St. Jude’s locally canned tuna, there’s something for everyone.
The owners of Grand Central include siblings Piper and Ben Davis, who have helped grow the brand for their mother, Gwen Bassetti. The company, founded in 1989, has come to stand not only for quality breads and pastries but also for seasonally inspired café cuisine and a commitment to stewardship. Grand Central supports local producers such as Shepherd’s Grain, Beecher’s Cheese, Skagit Sun Berries, Full Circle Farms, and Fall City Farms.”
