Dough Mama Cancels Dublin Expansion Plans
Clintonville-based cafe Dough Mama was announced back in November as one of the first vendors in the lineup at the new Bridge Park North Market in Dublin. Those plans have been cancelled, as the owners announced via social media on Saturday.
“Unfortunately, due to the financial blow of being closed for multiple months, our stall in the North Market at Bridge Park is no longer feasible,” stated the post on Facebook. “We were willing to do whatever it took to make it work, but in the end, it would have taken everything we had left, and that was something we just couldn’t risk.”
North Market Executive Director Rick Harrison Wolfe stated that they respected the difficult decision to focus on their sole location and remain fans of Dough Mama. They anticipate replacing them with a different concept at the new North Market expansion.
“We have several other local small businesses in the bakery category that have shown interest,” stated Wolfe. “We are working through the proposal process with them currently.”
The original Dough Mama location at 3335 North High Street resumed takeout and delivery service on June 11th, and also took part in the recent Bakers Against Racism sale. The owners also mentioned that some positive news is on the horizon to make up for the bad news about the Bridge Park expansion plans.
“We do have some exciting news we will be announcing in the near future,” they teased. “Stay tuned.”
The North Market at Bridge Park is anticipating a Summer 2020 grand opening.
