While owner Siv Lopez is operating out of the Corner Food Mart in Garland, she said the new bakery will be Bella Flan’s flagship location.
“We will have a full menu with our savory items [in Richardson],” Lopez said, noting the menu will include Cuban sandwiches, potato balls and meat pies. “It's a Cuban bakery with an Asian fusion.”
Lopez said she started offering desserts under the Bella Flan name in 2020, specializing in Cuban flan, chocoflan and tres leches.
“I’ve been making flans for 20 years,” she said. “My mother-in-law, she's Cuban, [and] it's her recipe. It’s just a lot of fun and I like to share it.”
The Garland location will become a Bella Flan Express once the new location opens in the Arapaho Village Shopping Center, Lopez said. 214-566-3656 (Garland location). www.bellaflan.com
