The Huntsville and Madison County business community continues to grow, and recent announcements of new business openings are indicators of that growth.
This past week we welcomed three new businesses to the Huntsville area, while unfortunately seeing two businesses close. Here’s more:
1. The Bakingtist (reopening)
The Bakingtist hosted a grand reopening to officially launch their new menu on Friday, August 11. The bakery is on a mission to share the science behind baking and recently added brand new sandwiches to its line up of breads and pastries.
The Bakingtist, which opened last December, has added a variety of new sandwiches (named after scientists!) and drinks to its menu of artisan breads, pastries and other made-from-scratch baked goods.
2. Edgar’s Bakery – Town Madison
Birmingham-based Edgar’s Bakery opened its third Huntsville-area location recently. With locations already thriving in South Huntsville and the Village of Providence, the bakery opened its latest location in Town Madison.
3. Blue Oak BBQ
According to Louisiana-based Blue Oak BBQ’s website, a new Huntsville location for the chain is opening in “late 2023.” The new location in the MidCity district will be a welcomed addition, especially for those who want to grab a bite to eat before a concert at the Orion.
The restaurant is known for their ribs, pulled pork, brisket and smoked chicken wings.
Closings: Offbeat Coffee Studio, Rocket Rooster’s Coffee N’ Go
Over its five years in business, Offbeat Coffee Studio crafted some of the most creative coffees Huntsville’s ever gotten to experience. From their beautiful Galaxy Latte to recent creations like the Charred Grapefruit Espresso Soda, their ever-changing menu kept us coming back for more.
Rocket Rooster’s was the drive-thru location for Rooster’s Crow Coffee Roastery in Huntsville, which will keep their original coffee shop open on Whitesburg Drive.
