Ramon’s Bakery, of Utica, has announced the company has acquired Star Bakery, which recently announced it was closing its doors at its 103 Main St. location in Whitesboro after more than 50 years of business.
Ramon’s Bakery has plans to keep the Whitesboro site as well as continue business at its Utica bakery on Culver Avenue in Utica. The company will also operate a production facility at 1212 Catherine St. in Utica.
Star Bakery was previously owned by the Marshall Family, which has seen three generations of bakers. Ramon’s Bakery originally opened in 2018 as a food truck. With the success of the food truck, owner Ramon Zayas decided to settle down at the East Utica location in 2019. As a second generation baker himself, Zayas said he is very excited to continue to bring the greater Mohawk Valley additional sweet treats. “The acquisition of Star Bakery will be a great addition to Ramon’s Bakery, with many of the well loved items remaining on the menu, as well as keeping the current staff at all three locations,” Zayas said.
