Adrienne and Co. Opens New Location in New Albany, Indiana



New Albany, IN (June 24, 2016) – Adrienne and Co. New Albany, a bakery and cafe, celebrated the official opening of their newest expansion at their 133 E. Market Street location in New Albany, Wednesday, June 22nd with a ribbon cutting hosted by One Southern Indiana (1si). The event was attended by Indiana State Senator Ron Grooms; Indiana State Representative Ed Clere; City of New Albany Representative David Duggins; 1si Executive Vice President Matt Hall, 1si staff and Ambassadors and the public.

On March 15th, 2016, Adrienne and Co. opened their third location in New Albany, IN, Adrienne and Co. has two other locations in Jeffersonville and Floyds Knobs. Adrienne and Co. is hoping to bring the tastiest cakes, pastries and desserts, a casual dining experience (breakfast and Lunch), and special occasion catering and private chef services, using whole, fresh ingredients to the local area.
 
As a close knit family, Adrienne’s is able to bring their individual talents to create a fun and happy work environment for their employees, while at the same time providing great service and top quality food to the community. The 2200 square foot facility will be fully capable of serving all the needs of employees and their customers.

Although Adrienne’s has been a part of the local community for over a decade, their origin is from a place quite bit farther east. General Manager Liz Martino said, “As New York transplants, we have found ourselves in Southern Indiana for nearly 23 years. We love the overwhelming support we receive from our customers and community.” Starting the company at its first location in Jeffersonville in 2001 Adrienne and Co. have been growing rapidly Martino said, “Without our growing base of loyal customers, we would be nothing. We are so grateful to have the opportunity to serve each and every one of them every day.”

Adrienne and Co. has a total workforce of 50 employees, half of which work full-time and the other half work part-time. They are open from Tuesday-Thursday 7am to 2pm, and on Saturday and Sunday from 8am to 2pm. Adrienne and Co. hopes to see an expansion for their hours in the near future.

ABOUT ADRIENNE AND CO:
Adrienne and Co. started in 1973 in Niagara Falls New York, when Myra, our mom, made cakes for the hard working people of Western New York. For 30 years, Myra honed her baking and decorating skills to become one of the premier cake makers in the area.

After years of training, Adrienne, Myra's daughter, established Adrienne and Co. in 2001 in downtown Jeffersonville, Indiana. Adrienne, with her talented baking and decorating techniques, went on to win multiple blue ribbons from the Kentucky State Fair and has received many awards and accolades from the Kentuckiana community. Even Muhammad Ali was thrilled with an Adrienne and Co. cake for his birthday celebration in Downtown Louisville.

In 2006, with the entire family on board and a remodeled 5000 square foot facility, Adrienne and Co. Bakery Café supplies the area with the highest quality cake and bakery products and services at affordable prices. In 2014, we expanded to Floyds Knobs, where Myra and Shane began to make donuts to die for, attracting customers from all over the area and country, enticed by fresh off the line donuts and pastries. This year, younger sister Liz Martino, classically trained chef and caterer came aboard to push our capabilities to the limits once more; and, in New Albany, she is taking our amazing product offerings to the next level.
