BreadHive’s 2nd location to open in spring

Emily Stewart, a worker-owner of BreadHive, an artisan bakery at 123 Baynes St., stands in front of the bakery’s second location at 402 Connecticut St., set to open spring 2016. The Connecticut Street location will host the bakery’s first sit-down café, serving sandwiches, pretzels and dips, soups, salads and light pastries. BreadHive will keep the Baynes Street location for the wholesale baking of its breads, bagels, pretzels and granola. The bakery has flourished into a booming business in its nearly two years of existence. Its success can be largely attributed to its community support. The bakery got its start in 2014 by selling 65 shares at $1,000 a piece to 40 individuals, which has led to the owner’s confidence to expand its venture, Stewart said. At least 50 individuals have inquired about the second location and offered their support. By Troy Licastro and Anthony Reyes
