Decatur’s La Calavera Bakery—known for its mostly-organic whole grain bread, sourdoughs, and Mexican treats—is expanding to Kirkwood.
Co-owner Eric Arillo last week filed plans with the City of Atlanta to convert a daycare center, at 1696 Memorial Drive, into a new outpost of the bakery.
The 1,000-square-foot space would include a “small addition” to the rear of the building for a retail component.
Construction at the space would cost an estimated $120,000, according to the permit application.
Arillo and his wife Dale Ralston opened their Decatur bakery, at 747 E College Avenue C, in 2014 after launching a Kickstarter campaign.
It’s unclear if the planned location is in addition to the Decatur store or a relocation.
When reached by phone Tuesday, Arillo would not immediately comment on the project.
