Ivy Tech to start bakery on campus

Kimberly Dupps Truesdell | For The Journal Gazette

Students at Ivy Tech Community College Fort Wayne are preparing to open their own bakery on the North Anthony Boulevard campus.

The Bakery at Kelty's Kafé will operate Tuesdays this fall as part of the Hospitality Administration program's bakery merchandising class. Students will make and sell baked goods and will each serve as bakery manager for one week, being responsible for marketing, purchase requisitions, inventory control and financial analysis.

The bakery will offer cinnamon rolls, cookies, muffins, bread, yogurt cups, fresh fruit cups, coffee from Old Crown Coffee Roasters and more. 

There will be an espresso machine to make items, including espresso and lattes.

It will be open from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Sept. 10, 17 and 24 and Oct. 1 and 8.

The bakery is open to the public in the Ivy Tech Community College Fort Wayne Anthony Commons on the Coliseum Campus, 3800 N. Anthony Blvd. Enter Door 50, which faces away from Coliseum Boulevard.

New Dairy Queen

A new Dairy Queen restaurant has opened on the north side of Fort Wayne.

The 2,390 square-foot DQ Grill & Chill restaurant at 5115 E. Dupont Road can seat 40 inside with additional seating on a patio. There is also a drive-thru window.

The menu features a range of items, including the DQ system's value meals and the new $6 Dollar Meal Deal. Diners have a choice of a one-third-pound double burger with cheese or the three-piece chicken strip lunch with the $6 Buck Lunch. Both are served with fries, a beverage and choice of a sundae. For $1 more, the small sundae can be changed to a small Blizzard.

The restaurant also serves the new DQ Bakes! menu, which includes hot desserts and artisan-style sandwiches. Treats include the Triple Chocolate Brownie and the Fudge Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie. Artisan-style sandwiches – Chicken Bacon Ranch and the Turkey BLT – are served hot and made with ciabatta breads. There are also soft pretzel sticks with zesty queso.

Hours will be 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 10:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
