Goozlepipe & Guttyworks

Sweet Revolution Bakery

Sweet Revolution Bakery is going in at 1243 King Street.

Katie Riehm says the name of her new Riverside area business, Sweet Revolution Baking Co., is a spin on her plan to take the craft to the next step of producing sweet treats with all-natural, allergy-free ingredients.

That means doughnuts, cupcakes, cookie sandwiches, muffins and breakfast items free of egg, dairy, soy and peanut ingredients. Many of the products also will be gluten-free.

Riehm calls her venture, which she will open at 1243 King St., “an alternative bakery.”

“It’s a whole new era of baked goods,” said Riehm, a 27-year-old Jacksonville native.

CoRK North

A third warehouse, north of Rosselle Street, is being converted into additional studio, gallery and entertainment space in the popular CoRK Arts District.

Pulp Juice Bar

Pulp is still in the process of moving forward with opening their second urban Jacksonville location at the Shops of Avondale.
