Joy Road Catering will break ground this January on their new year-round bakeshop, catering kitchen and four guest suites in Penticton’s downtown core.
Joy Road is well known for its event catering, Alfresco Dining Series and farmers’ market stand.
In fact, Joy Road began at the Penticton Farmers’ Market selling baked goods, preserves and treats 14 years ago.
Fast forward to today, and the success of this local business brought the need for more production space and equipment, said Joy Road co-owner Brett Turner.
Combine this with Chef Brett and Olivia Fobert’s vision for a complete local hospitality experience, and the retail bakeshop and guest suites were born, said Turner.
The new project, expected to complete in fall 2021 is being designed by local architect MAD Studio.
Located at 227 Winnipeg St., the bakeshop is being built beside many local favorites such as Pizzeria Tratto, The Black Antler, Wayne & Freda, Bad Tattoo Brewing and Neighborhood Brewing.
“There will be a variety of breads and pastries, as well as some breakfast and lunch items to eat in or take away. There will be two large overhead doors at street level with indoor and patio seating,” said Turner.
“This will be the Bakeshop and it will be accessible to the public. The courtyard will be located on the second floor and will be for the exclusive use of the guest suite guests. Having said that, we will be hosting our Al Fresco dinners in the courtyard from time to time.”
