The owners of Field & Main restaurant in Marshall are buying Red Truck Bakery, the owner of the renowned bakery said in a social media post Friday.
“The Red Truck Bakery’s future will soon be in the good hands of Neal and Star Wavra, owners of Field & Main restaurant in Marshall, who will be overseeing operations of the two bakery locations within the next few months, in addition to running their restaurant,” wrote Red Truck Bakery owner Brian Noyes.
“I’ve also sold the red truck itself (I bought it from designer Tommy Hilfiger in 2004) to the new company. I truly couldn’t have found a better fit for the bakery.”
Noyes said talks with the Wavras, who own Fable Hospitality, started in January. He said they have the resources to grow the bakery that is across the street from their restaurant. Noyes, a writer with a third book on the way, will remain an investor and will assist with marketing the bakery.
The bakery’s main location with a café and market is at 8368 W. Main St. in Marshall. Its original local is at 22 Waterloo St. in Warrenton. Red Truck Bakery credits The New York Times with helping it gain national attention, and it has been recognized as “One of America’s best small-town bakeries” by Travel + Leisure.
