A South Side bakery will be opening a new location at Polaris this summer.
J’s Sweet Treats will add a second brick-and-mortar location in the first week of July at Polaris Fashion Place. The bakery will be taking over the former Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory location on the upper level next to the new FieldhouseUSA mall anchor.
The bakery has been featured on national shows like “Bake it Like Buddy with Buddy Valastro” and “The Drew Barrymore Show” and it has become a household name here in Columbus for wedding and custom cakes. Founder Juana Williams runs the business with the help of her entire family, including her husband Vance and her children Takia, Ma’Khala, and De’Vante.
The new location will have all the delicious goodies fans of J’s Sweet Treats have come to know and love, as well as some new items including truffles, extreme dipped apples, and more. The new space will also feature a boutique shop with cards, candles, and other gift items.
“Sometimes it feels surreal what we’ve built from a part-time side hustle in my kitchen,” shares Juana, founder of J’s Sweet Treats. “We opened our first brick-and-mortar on Parsons last March, just over a week before the state-mandated COVID shutdowns. Though foot traffic has been light considering, it has genuinely been a record-breaking year for us for custom cake orders. We are looking forward to this expansion — eager and ready for the opportunity to introduce the brand to additional Central Ohio communities.”
J’s Sweet Treats is located at 1540 Parsons Avenue and is open Wednesday through Friday from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm and Saturday from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm weekly. The new location will be located at 1500 Polaris Parkway, open daily in alignment with the Polaris Fashion Place hours of operation.
