Titus Bakery celebrates 40 years of business with activities this month

Titus Bakery is celebrating 40 years of business with activities at its two central Indiana locations all month long:

  • 820 W. South St. in Lebanon, IN 46025
  • 17471 Wheeler Rd., Suite 110 (Monon Market Place) in Westfield, IN 46074

For 40 years Titus Bakery has operated from its location in Lebanon, Ind. originally serving a variety of pastries. In 2012, founder Bill Titus decided to retire and enlisted the help of his daughter, Terry Rake, to find a buyer.

However, Terry saw this as an opportunity to grow the business and keep it in the family. In addition to expanding hours and visibility, Terry began an extending offering on the cakes, pies, cookies, as well as other baked items and added a deli. She then changed the name from Titus Pastries to Titus Bakery.

In honor of this mega milestone, the Bakery will be hosting the following events:

  • Thursday, Jan. 9 at the Lebanon, Ind. location from 9 – 11 a.m.

Founder Bill Titus (owner from 1980 – 2012) will be present to greet and reminisce with customers about the last 40 years in the doughnut business.

  • Sunday, Jan. 12 at the Westfield, Ind. location from 9 a.m. – Noon
  • Saturday, Jan. 18 at Cork and Barrel from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Titus Bakery has partnered with Cork and Barrel to host a Wine and Donuts tasting event. Five wines from around-the-world will be paired with donuts. Each person will receive a one-ounce sample pour of wine. Featured donuts will include Maple Bacon, Peanut Butter Fluff, Pershing, Nut Stick and Black Forest.
