CHARLOTTE, N.C. (FOX 46 CHARLOTTE) – The smell of fresh-baked bread has made a return to Central Avenue in Plaza Midwood. Amelie’s French Bakery has taken over a space that was also previously used as a bakery, carrying on a tradition in a neighborhood that is seeing rapid growth and change.

Amelie’s is now in the wholesale bread service. So far it has been a soft launch, providing bread to catering companies and other businesses with large bread orders. The hope is to eventually open up a brick-and-mortar shop along Central Avenue for all customers to enjoy fresh-baked bread.

“Bread has always been kind of therapeutic to me,” said lead bread maker, Joseph Feliz.

You can’t rush the bread baking process as it takes plenty of time not only for baking but for rising to that perfect shape.
