Make no mistake, the Bakery mishap happening today has very little to do with a bunch of young entreupeneurs playing patty cake together and more to do with some peeps in trouble with the Copper Lounge collapse;
Funding for The Bakery dried up after the collapse of the former Copper Lounge at the corner of W. 10th Street and Phillips Avenue in December, Hazard said. The collapse killed a construction worker.
Hultgren Construction was in charge of that building’s renovation. Aaron Hultgren, the company’s owner, was also involved in The Bakery, and had planned to buy out departed Bakery co-owner Brian Rand’s share of the business prior to the building collapse, Hazard said.
The building’s collapse will likely lead to a lot of legal fallout.
â€œThere’s a lot that’s going to be at play in this case,â€ Bob Trzynka, a lawyer with the Cutler Law Firm, told the Argus Leader in December. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s investigation into the collapse is still an open case.
Trust me, I know I am not the only one hearing the rumors going around town over the past couple of weeks about the intensity of the Feds investigation.Â We’ll keep our eyes and ears open.
Below is the video of one of the Bakery founders explanation. I would also like to thank all my readers for making me about 50 cents a day clicking on the bait. LOL.
