Hartford, CT – State Senator Tony Guglielmo (R-Vernon) welcomed a new business to the town of Vernon with the Mayor and Economic Development Coordinator on Thursday. The bakery’s name is La Brioche French Bakery and it sits on West Main Street right across from Town Hall.

“I love what I do and I am so happy to have all of this support,” said Colette Berube, owner of La Brioche Bakery.

“I think it is wonderful to have a new business on West Main Street in Vernon. There is a lot of foot traffic here between the town hall and the courthouse. I think Colette will do very well,” said Sen. Guglielmo. “Her pastries are fantastic too so that should help a lot.”

Colette Berube came to the United States back in 1953 when she left her hometown of Metz, France. She has been baking for decades and sells homemade French breads and pastries. The bakery moved to Vernon when the space became available. Berube is the baker and family members help out.

Vernon’s Mayor Daniel Champagne and Economic Development Coordinator, Shaun Gately were also on hand for a ceremonial ribbon cutting. The bakery is now… Ouvert Aux Affaires! (open for business)
