Titus Bakery Opens Third Location
Terry Rake, owner of Titus Bakery and Deli in Lebanon, is thrilled to have opened a third Titus location at Reynolds Farm Equipment in Atlanta, Indiana, known as Titus Bakery & Deli at Reynolds.
“I couldn’t be happier about this,” Rake says of the new location. “I was contacted by some great people at Reynolds earlier in the year to open a restaurant at their facility. Their previous restaurant, Combine Cafe, closed last March, and they were looking for another place to come in. We started there in August, and we have been really busy.”
Rake says many Reynolds staff members and customers were already buying doughnuts and sandwiches from Titus at their Lebanon and Westfield locations.
“It’s been really nice to have customers from Atlanta who live near Reynolds tell us they are happy to have a Titus so close to their homes,” Rake says. “There really aren’t a lot of restaurant options in the immediate area, and people looking for some outstanding doughnuts and deli sandwiches have really supported us. We have always worked hard to make our customers happy, and it’s been that way for a long time.”
Rake’s grandfather opened the company’s original location,Titus Pastries, in Lebanon back in the 1950s.
“He has a lot of loyal customers who kept coming back,” Rake says. “I bought the business in 2012, and started the deli part of the business in 2014.”
Rake says Titus customers at the Reynolds location can get the same delicious doughnuts and deli sandwiches served at the other locations.
“We also added some new breakfast sandwiches for the new Reynolds location that have been very popular,” Rake says. “We have one called The Hogger, which has ham, bacon, salami and cheese. Our Udderly Delicious sandwich has egg, cheese, and ham or bacon, on a yeast doughnut as the bread.”
Rake says the new eatery has been a great fit for the area.
“The people at Reynolds have been so kind and supportive,” Rake says. “They eat here a lot. We can seat 48 to 60 people inside our cafe, and we have picnic tables for outside eating.”
Kyle Nagy, marketing manager at Reynolds Farm Equipment, says the new restaurant has worked out well so far.
“The addition of Titus to Reynolds has really been great,” Nagy says. “Our employees love their doughnuts and sandwiches, and it has brought new customers into our building who have never been in our store before. Likewise, our normal customers come in now and grab parts, and a doughnut on their way out.”
Nagy has his own personal Titus favorites among their selection of treats.
“The apple fritter from Titus is hands-down my favorite doughnut,” Nagy says. “It is as big as my head, and is a meal by itself. I also love their box-lunch sandwich meals. It is a lot of food that is made fresh for you.”
