Today is the first day of business for Campbell’s Sweets Factory's new Lakewood shop at the corner of Warren Road and Detroit Avenue (14730 Detroit Ave., 440-799-8778, campbellssweets.com). It is that company's third location, along with the original at the West Side Market, and the newer sweets shop down the road on W. 25th Street.
Apart from the design, the operation is identical to what shoppers experience on W. 25th Street. "Our cupcakes, chocolates, and popcorn will all be produced right at our location in Lakewood," owner Jeff Campbell tells Scene.
Campbell says that Lakewood has been on the company's radar for over a year. "We identified Lakewood because of its density and foot traffic," he explains. "Plus, Lakewood, like Ohio City, is becoming a very foodie city."
Next up for the growing company, says Campbell, is University Circle.
