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.

“There’s a lot that’s going to be at play in this case,” 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. 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.

    21:09 minutes of justifying and rationalizing from a snake oil salesman.

  2. Its what we’ve known all along. The Bakery needs additional funding to stay afloat and the funder is now toxic.

    The Bakery’s yeast is dead. Version 2 will look more like a cubicle farm and less like the Google campus.

    sort of weird to put info on live video when he disses the building so hard. If building no good already, who did the renovating on it? there aint no bread in the bakery.

  4. “Oh! What a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive.”

    The grand jury, will it be a state one or a federal one. Is it merely about criminal negligence or more about political corruption?

    Who are the investors?

    Fresh Produce, Meso, The Bakery……

    This seems to be a concept that doesn’t work. How many of these so-called entrepreneurs actually are able to support themselves long-term?

    Fresh Produce is an ad agency, still in business and the Bakery took all of Meso’s tenants and put them out of business.

    This crew at Fluxxr / The Bakery have been grifters of the highest order.

    I especially like the part in the Facebook Live video during which Brown says, [paraphrasing] “I’m the guy who had to talk to my kids who had tears in their eyes and tell them that they aren’t going to inherit this place, or whatever they might have thought.”

    Sir, you and your squad were LEASING a building, market value of which was well beyond the means of the original start up business [Fluxxr], let alone the egaletarian community project which was The Bakery. That Rand and Brown were able to work from this building for 2 years represents a superb grifting job.

    Good to have sizzle, but you need steak and potatoes [working capital, revenue] to get the business to the next month. These guys are all sizzle. No steak. [Or as they might say in ranch country: All Hat and No Cattle].
