Look out Halloween and zombie lovers with a sweet tooth, you’re about to get both cravings satisfied all year long.
With the television series “The Walking Dead” doing so well, it seems like America is on a kick when it comes to the living dead. Vanessa Guillen, owner of Zombee Bakery saw this as a perfect opportunity to open a bake shop with a unique theme.
“We love zombies, cupcakes and donuts,” Guillen said. “And we know college students love the zombie theme as well.”
Working in a bakery for seven years and baking for as long as she can remember, Guillen says that she always knew she wanted to open a bakery, but not a traditional one. Zombee Bakery will have more of a coffee shop feel with sofas and lounge chairs.
“I wanted a place where people could sit down, relax, have a pastry and hang out,” Guillen said.
Having had the concept for years, finding a location was very tough. When one opened up in Fullerton right by Fullerton College and Downtown Fullerton, it was the perfect place for a shop geared towards a younger crowd.
The shop will offer not only donuts, but cupcakes, coffee cake, cronuts (a cross between a donut and croissant) and more.
“We’re excited to bring original pastries to the city,” Guillen said.
Some of these original pastries will be treats like a zombie donut with brains and raspberry filling and a signature Monster donut that will have a Monster Energy drink infused glaze on top.
Donuts and energy drinks? What more could a college student ask for?
Zombee Bakery plans on opening by the end of the year, so keep a close watch on this infected store front and around the area for promotions and giveaways.
Located at 802 E Chapman Ave in Fullerton.
