BizBeat: B.K Bakery taking a day of rest

March 17th, 2013 in News

You might have to stick with church doughnuts on Sundays - B.K. Bakery is making it a day of rest.

The Jefferson City pastry shop recently expanded, but has now decided to close on Sundays, owner Brandon Kelley said.

B.K. Bakery's signature item is its made-from-scratch cinnamon rolls. Last year, the business was nominated for "Small Business of the Year."

"We originally never had intentions of being open on Sunday, but decided to try it out of necessity," Kelley said in an e-mailed response to the News Tribune. He said the cost of being open exceeds sales on that day.

"My wife (Ida) and I were working seven days a week to keep our labor costs down, but it took a toll on us both," he said.

The business is still open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
