Bread Winners Cafe & Bakery has been sold to investor Josh Bock but the Hughes Family will still be intact with their legacy according to a Dallas Morning News article. They say,
“Bread Winners Cafe & Bakery, a New Orleans-style breakfast and brunch spot that opened on Dallas’ McKinney Avenue in 1994, has been sold to Dallas real estate investor Josh Bock.
Founders Jim and Cindy Hughes, who bought the Bread Winners name for $1 in the ‘90s, plan to retire. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The Hughes family will maintain ownership of Deep Ellum restaurant Harlowe MXM and Uptown brunch spot Henry’s Majestic.
Two of the Hugheses’ kids will remain with the business. Andrew Popp, Cindy Hughes’ son, is the chief operating officer. He’s worked at his family’s restaurants since 1999 — first as a dishwasher, then host, manager and caterer. Spencer Popp remains at the company as IT manager.”
As for Jim and Cindy’s other ventures, it will be business as usual save for Henry’s Majestic which will be relocated according to a People Newspapers article. They say,
“It’s business as usual at Harlowe, with a continued focus on creative ideas for food and cocktails. We are looking for a new location for Henry’s Majestic, as our landlord has sold the building, and our time there is limited. October 30 is our last day in that location. We hope that our customers will come by and dine one last time in the amazing space over the next few weeks! Our plan is to reopen Henry’s Majestic in a new location, so the hunt is on for a space! Stay tuned…”
Bread Winners started out as a breakfast and coffee joint in 1994. It then became a brunch spot which the Hugheses believe to be the origins of brunch in Dallas.
