Food Network plans to give stale bakeries some sweet face-lifts in the series Save My Bakery, premiering March 19.
Sugar artist Kerry Vincent (pictured), who previously made her debut on the network as a judge on Food Network Challenge, will star in the show, traveling around the U.S. to help businesses boost sales with new recipes and store renovations. In an episode shot in Ardmore, Pennsylvania, for example, Vincent comes to the aid of struggling bakery Viking Pastries by bringing in a licensed contractor to remodel the storefront, and renewing the menu herself.
“For generations, bakeries were the backbone of communities across America. Save My Bakery takes on the challenge of rescuing these businesses and the families behind them,” said Bob Tuschman, GM and SVP of Food Network, in a statement. “Kerry Vincent’s deep expertise combined with her take-charge manner is just what these families need to get back on their feet.”
Save My Bakery is produced by Nancy Glass Productions.
