Angelina Bakery opens Times Square flagship location
Angelina Bakery is marking its official expansion in New York City with the opening of a new flagship store in the heart of Manhattan and theatre district in Times Square. Known for its Asian-inspired Italian baked goods, such as the iconic bombolone, Angelina Bakery’s biggest location yet offers even more unique menu items and treats.
The new location is a 4,000 square foot structure built across two floors. The décor boasts Angelina Bakery’s Tiffany blue with added white and gold details and features a big open kitchen, visible to the street so onlookers on Broadway can peer in.
“Since I was a little boy, I always dreamed of owning a food establishment in Times Square,” says Antonio “Tony” Park, owner of Angelina Bakery. “Back then it was McDonalds. I used to race my skateboard up and down Broadway and then sit on the corner of 45th and Broadway and think about how many burgers I was going to sell one day. To now own a bakery in the center of the city, I can say my dreams have come true.”
To celebrate the opening, Angelina Bakery is giving all customers a free bombolone upon purchase during the opening weekend.
In addition, Angelina Bakery has partnered with The Actors Fund to create a special Broadway Bombolone featuring their renowned motto, “I Heart the Arts” in colorful sugar. Available exclusively at the Times Square location starting November 30, all sales of this special bombolone are donated to the organization that supports working professionals of the theatre and entertainment community.
“What a ‘sweet treat’ to be included in the opening of Angelina Bakery in Times Square,” says Joseph Benincasa, president and chief executive officer of The Actors Fund. “As Broadway theaters re-open their doors, The Actors Fund is here to support professionals in the performing arts community as they get back to work. And, we can’t wait for audiences to once again enjoy the magic of live theater—along with a Broadway Bombolone, of course!”
