After almost five years in Beavercreek, RachelBakes & Co is moving to the Cross Pointe Shopping Center in Centerville for more space.

Bakery owner Rachel Owens said the current location, at 2231 N. Fairfield Road, was already too small in 2015 when they moved in.

“We were already busting at the seams, running into each other and we’ve only grown exponentially since,” Owens said.

She added she wasn’t necessarily looking to leave Beavercreek, but the Centerville location became the best option. Owens hopes to open their new location between August and September.

RachelBakes & Co will be in the building where Fortis College was previously located. Owens says the bakery will take up about one-fifth of the building.
