Bouzies Bakery shifts focus

Bouzies Bakery on Spokane’s South Hill is ending its wholesale accounts Friday to focus on in-restaurant retail.

“We want people to come to Luna,” said new owner Aaron DeLis, who plans to install a bigger bread rack in the restaurant’s entry way.

The bakeshop, tucked into a former residence behind Luna at 57th Avenue and Perry Street, will continue to bake for the restaurant as well as Rusty Moose, also owned by DeLis. He and his parents, Frank and Julie DeLis, and fiancée Hannah Heber, bought Luna and Bouzies in January from Marcia and William Bond, who opened the restaurant in 1992.

Huckleberry’s had been the bakery’s largest wholesale account, said DeLis, who also plans to stop selling baked goods at local farmers markets in August. Bouzies had been selling bakery items at Thursday Market in the South Perry District and the Liberty Lake and Spokane farmers markets.

Eventually, its name will change, too. “We want it to be Luna bread,” DeLis said.
