La Casita Bakeshop in Richardson is expanding their business by opening several coffee shops, starting with “La Casita Coffee” in January 2023, which they bought and rebranded from The Modern Well according to a Dallas Morning News article. They say,
“The owners of lauded bakery La Casita Bakeshop in Richardson are expanding their business and venturing into coffee shops.
Maricsa Trejo and her husband and business partner, Alex Henderson, bought The Modern Well coffee shop in Rowlett and will reopen it as La Casita Coffee in January 2023. It’s the first of several coffee shops they plan to open next year, Trejo says.
“It was perfect timing,” Trejo says. “We wanted to branch out of Richardson, and when this opportunity came it was like, ‘Omg, yes.’””
Maricsa Trejo infuses her Mexican heritage and her experience of traveling and working in kitchens into her unique menu, offering twists on traditional dishes according to a Texas Highways article which report,
“Trejo’s adventurous spirit infuses everything she does. Before opening La Casita in 2019, Trejo traveled all over, from New York to Portland to Thailand, working in kitchens and expanding her culinary chops. A Dallas native and first-generation American, Trejo grew up as one of six daughters to Mexican parents. Always a voracious eater—she admits to a childhood penchant for stealing from her sisters’ plates—Trejo didn’t initially dream of working with food. “I was ashamed for a long time because especially in elementary and middle school, you want to be like the others,” she says. “The other kids would bring their Lunchables or cool snacks. Mine was all Mexican food.”
La Casita Coffee will open on Jan. 14, 2023 with a soft opening and fully open on Jan. 21, 2023, with renovations taking place Jan. 1 to Jan. 3, the coffee shop will be located at 3837 Main St, Rowlett, and will be open 7 days a week from 7 am to 3 pm.
