A new business, Chuy’s Bakery, featuring Mexican baked goods is now open in the location previously occupied by Jimmy’s Pizza at 33 Main St. in Kasson. Adalberto Guzman recently received Revolving Loan Fund gap financing from the Dodge County Economic Development Authority. Earlier this year, Guzman’s proposal was presented to the Dodge County Board of Commissioners who subsequently approved the loan application. The loan will be repaid over a 10-year period and generate about $4,000 in interest towards the Revolving Loan Fund for future loan projects.

Guzman said he and his partner, Domingo Morales, will run the business. Morales previously operated a Mexican Bakery in Iowa. Chuy’s Bakery will sell to regional Hispanic eateries as well as to individual customers who can shop in the store. All COVID precautions are in place.

The bakery is open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday. On Fridays, the bakery is open from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. The phone number is (507) 634-4120. Walk-in customers are welcome.

Guzman talked about some of the products the bakery sells. They offer individually sized torpedo-shaped white breads which are excellent for sandwiches or just plain with a hot drink, he said.

They also have sweet empanada pies including caramel, pumpkin, and pineapple.

They offer conchas, which are sweet, soft breads that resemble seashells and pan sino, which is a sweet bread with cinnamon made into different shapes.

Some of their products resemble croissants, he explained. The differences in the products are often because of the different ingredients that are used in the baking.

Guzman and his partner and their families are glad the bakery is up and running and look forward to many years of good baking in Kasson.
