According to Bussmann’s Bakery owner Nancy Sanford, the 52-year-old business at 1906 Frankfort Avenue will close on September 28.

It is with deep sadness that I am announcing the bakery will be closing as of September 28,” wrote Sanford. “I have truly enjoyed the 22 years of making baked goods and decorating cakes for all my wonderful customers. Thank you for all the years of support and love.”

The bakery’s original owner was a native of Austria, and when Sanford purchased the business around 1997, the German recipes stayed. In 2018 a short-lived second location opened in the East End off Goose Creek Road, but ceased operations in April this year.
