Bakery looking at building sites in Menomonee Falls, other locations

Feb. 6, 2013

A Waukesha-based wholesale bakery that dropped plans to build a new facility in Milwaukee is considering locations in Menomonee Falls and other communities.

Cybros Inc., which does business as Angelic Bakehouse, wants to make a decision soon in order to break ground on the project by April, said James Marino, co-owner.

"It is not a done deal yet," Marino said Wednesday. "There are a few municipalities we're talking to, and Menomonee Falls is one."

The Menomonee Falls Plan Commission at its Tuesday night meeting approved the proposal for a wholesale bakery in Westbrook Business Park, said Matt Carran, the village's community development director.

The 22,047-square-foot building would be built on 3.5 acres about two blocks south of Main St., about halfway between Old Orchard Road and N. 124th St. The bakery has 29 employees, with plans to grow to 100 employees within three years, according to information filed with the commission.

Marino declined to say what other communities are being considered.

Bill Mitchell, Waukesha County Economic Development Corp. executive director, said he provided information to the company about prospective sites in Menomonee Falls, Brookfield and New Berlin.

Dan Ertl, Brookfield community development director, said he's not aware of any sites in that city that are being considered. Greg Kessler, New Berlin community development director, said he hasn't had any discussions with the company.

Steve Crandell, Waukesha community development director, said he's spoken with Marino about prospective sites within that city.

Angelic Bakehouse has outgrown its 7,000-square-foot facility at 417 Barney St., Waukesha.

The company in August announced preliminary plans to buy 1.89 acres in Milwaukee's Menomonee Valley Industrial Center, and build an 18,000-square-foot facility there.

Marino and his wife, Jenny, the other co-owner, decided in October not to pursue that development after construction cost estimates were higher than expected.

"We have a very tight budget. A $30,000 surprise here, a $30,000 surprise there and you get a project that's no longer feasible," James Marino said. The decision to drop the valley site wasn't related to any issues with doing business in Milwaukee, he said.

Angelic Bakehouse products use grains that are sprouted and ground to produce doughs that have no trans fats or added preservatives and use only natural sweeteners such as honey and molasses. The breads and other baked goods are high in protein and fiber and low in calories, carbohydrates, fat, sugar and sodium.
