Locals Christy and Brian Herbstreit were named the 2018 Bakery Operator of the Year by Nothing Bundt Cakes Enterprises at the brand’s annual conference and awards banquet July 21 in Orlando, Florida.

The Bakery Operator of the Year is awarded annually by the Nothing Bundt Cakes support team to recognize one outstanding operator within the Nothing Bundt Cakes system of more than 250 bakeries in the U.S. and Canada, a news release said.

"The Herbstreits were recognized for consistently going above and beyond in implementing the brand’s operating standards in both of their Austin bakeries," the release said.

The duo opened their first bakery in Westlake in November 2012 and the second location in South Austin in September 2014. They will open their third bakery next summer in the Round Rock/Pflugerville area.

The Nothing Bundt Cakes in Westlake is located at 2785 Bee Caves Road, Ste. 333, Austin. 512-329-8333. www.nothingbundtcakes.com
