Potomac Sweets is Coming to Kensington
UPDATE: Potomac Sweets will open on Wednesday, November 11th
Potomac Sweets, a bakery with a presence at various local farmer’s market in the area, is opening a storefront in Kensington.
It will be taking the place of the recently closed JennyCakes Bakery on Armory Ave in Kensington.
Potomac Sweets was created by Chef Gerard Partoens, who was trained in Belgium and perfected his skills in Antwerp’s best pastry shops. He spent 25 years working as an Executive Pastry Chef in top hotels, from the Ritz Carlton and Grand Hyatt in Hawaii, to the Broadmoor Colorado Springs and Caesar’s Palace Las Vegas. He then honed his management skills working for Whole Foods Market and running the bakery program for over 50 locations. Chef Partoens then moved back to the Washington-metro area and created Potomac Sweets.
The bakery will serve pies, cookies and a wide selection of Viennoserie pastries We don’t have word on an opening date just yet, but we don’t expect it to take as long as most transitions.
