Park Side Eatery owners planning bakery shop chain
Next on Michael and Heidi Hoyt's agenda is acquisition of a liquor license for Park Side, which they plan to expand with patio seating, as well as creation of a string of bakeries.
The bakeries will be called Glazed Backerei, a name already part of the Park Side operation using German family recipes for their donuts, cupcakes, cookies and pies.
"We're trying to bring food to Saratoga that maybe has been lost," Michael Hoyt told the Business Review in discussing their expansion plans. "We want to take this love of peasant food and give it a name and reintroduce it back in the area."
They are looking for a location in the Wilton area as a starting point, with plans to open eight baked goods stores between Albany and Lake George. It has not yet been decided if they will be a mix of seasonal and pop-up stores along with permanent sites.
The Hoyts already produce baked goods for their catering and Park Side operations in one of two kitchens they have at 42 Phila Street in Saratoga Springs.
The Park Side Eatery is located at 40 Phila Street. Adirondack Barbecue and Black Diamond Caterers handle various levels of catering off-premises, such as weddings, barbecues, picnics and conference.
