Sweet Frostings opens new shop

Business partners Judy Rozier and Sally Winfrey will open their second Sweet Frostings bake shop on Wednesday at the Wandermere Shopping Center at 12501 N. Division St.

Their first bake shop opened in downtown Spokane in November 201 1.

The expansion reflects strong customer response for their products, said Rozier. The company produces roughly 18 cupcake styles daily.

The new store, with 1,700 square feet, will be open six days a week. It includes a party room for social events.

Cody George, of Kiemle & Hagood, arranged the lease.

Cocktail bar in Peyton Building

Matt Goodwin will open a new cocktail bar in the Peyton Building later this fall, calling the business the Volstead Act.

The cocktail bar will move into the former Fraiche Contemporary French location, at 12 N. Post St. Goodwin said he hopes to open in September.

Goodwin has been co-owner of several area businesses, including the Boiler Room in the new Cedar Crossing development.

Goodwin said the business name refers to the law that created Prohibition in 1919. “The business will be a pre-Prohibition, classic cocktail lounge,” Goodwin said. He said cocktails produced in speakeasies and illegal bars after Prohibition relied on flavorings, sugar and syrups to mask the taste of bootleg whiskey and gin.

“Classic” pre-1919 cocktails are an emerging social trend, he said.

He’ll lease 750 square feet for the main seating area. Erik Nelson, Cody George and Alison Bantz, all with Kiemle & Hagood, arranged the lease.
