Bevill State Community College is excited to welcome Kelly Rigsby, owner of 5 Loaves Bakery & Café, along with her patrons to the Jasper Campus in the Frances Israel Cafeteria in the Wade Math & Science Building (805 14th Street E, Jasper, AL 35501). 5 Loaves Bakery & Café is scheduled to open for business at this location on Monday, February 5, 2024. Any changes to these plans will be shared with the public on social media. Lavish Coffee Bar will continue to operate in this location in conjunction with the café.
5 Loaves Bakery & Café’s operating hours will be Monday through Friday from 7am to 3pm (subject to change). The breakfast menu will focus on easy-to-eat, on-the-go items such as breakfast sandwiches, pastries, overnight oats, and breakfast charcuterie. The introductory lunch menu will feature freshly made soup, salad, and sandwich items. Additionally, the café will be serving a daily special. Plans are to expand the menu following the first two weeks of operation.
"I am thrilled about the prospect of this new venture. The chance to bring fresh and enticing menu options directly to the busy students and employees on campus, who may not have the luxury of time for lunch excursions, is truly exciting. Additionally, expanding our services to a new location allows us to continue serving the broader community. Collaborating with the talented team at Lavish Coffee Bar is another exciting aspect, and I am confident that our unique offerings will be complementary. Thank you, President Hagood and the Bevill State staff, for this exciting opportunity," commented Kelly Rigsby, owner of 5 Loaves Bakery & Café.
Dr. Joel Hagood, President of Bevill State Community College, stated, “5 Loaves Bakery & Café is a respected establishment within our community. The prospect of offering food from 5 Loaves, coupled with Lavish Coffee Bar, promises to enhance the overall experience for our students, faculty, and staff. Beyond our academic environment, we eagerly anticipate extending a warm welcome to the broader community, inviting all patrons of these exceptional businesses to become part of the Bevill State community. As YOUR community college, we extend an open invitation to everyone.”
