New bakery opens on Seventh Street

| October 15, 2019

COSHOCTON – The new Daily Bread Bakery offers fresh baked donuts, pastries, and breads.

The bakery opened at 702 S. Seventh St. on Sept. 16 and staff has spent the past month getting a feel for what the community wants.

“We wanted to see what sells and what doesn’t and train our staff so they could feel confident and offer good service while they learned,” said Brandon Long, lead baker. “With there already being other bakeries and coffee shops in Coshocton we didn’t want to step on anybody’s toes.  We want to find our niche.”

Long has been a professional baker since 2009. He is mostly self taught but did do some training under a woman who studied under the Le Cordon Bleu in France.

“I enjoy doing things the hard way to make a quality product,” he said. “When you work hard and make things from scratch I feel it makes a difference in the end.”

Their lunch specials are one way they plan to standout in the community.

“We make our own breads and build our sandwiches on them,” Long said.

The lunch specials were just recently added and include the following: Italian, Fresco Burger Melt, Chicken Salad, BLT, Hot Ham and Cheese, and Inside Out Grilled Cheese. Sandwiches are $5 or $6 with a side of either potato salad or broccoli salad.

Long was approached at the beginning of the year to help get the business up and running. Partners in the business are Jason and Courtney Watson and Terry and Danyelle Darr.

“A lot of businesses have come and gone from Coshocton especially in this particular place,” Long said. “My hope is to be able to train others in this craft so they have a wealth of knowledge and the skills to serve the community with real food.”

The Daily Bread Bakery’s freshest items are available from 6:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and from 6:30 a.m. to noon on Saturday. Lunch is currently only served Tuesday through Friday.

“We are still trying to figure out the best hours,” Long said.
