“I started working at Carlo’s Bakery when I was 11 years old and I will tell you, on my first day, the last thought I had was that I’d be introducing a 12th location in Orlando, Florida someday!” says Buddy Valastro. “You know, my famiglia and I love Orlando; there’s so much to do here with all the attractions and the locals are always so welcoming. I’m so excited to give the city the opportunity to have access to our treats and cakes at The Florida Mall, Central Florida’s largest shopping center.”

Bringing Carlo’s Bakery entire selection of famed confections and signature family-friendly atmosphere, this will be the brand’s first location in the southern United States. Modeled after the flagship Hoboken, N.J. bakery, the state-of-the-art facility will span over 2,300 square feet.
