Village Baking Co. Concept
Boulangeries are small, neighborhood bakeries found all over France. Our Dallas boulangeries reflect the same holistic principles as their French counterparts: patience, care, and a commitment to quality. We bake in small batches to create authentic treats that you simply can’t find elsewhere in DFW.
It’s effort and attention-to-detail that set us apart. We love to create products from scratch. Whether it’s housemade Ricotta cheese, hand-squeezed orange juice, or our original vanilla yogurt recipe, we’re always finding ways to do it ourselves.
We hope that by slowing down and taking our time with the baking process, we can encourage you to do the same. Life can be hectic, but when it comes to great food, you simply can’t compromise. We won’t either.
Village Baking Co. History
Our owner, Clint Cooper, plans to grow the boulangerie concept in additional DFW neighborhoods. Clint graduated with a business degree from Texas Tech in 1999 and immediately went to work for Dell Computers. After returning to the family farm and ranch in the Texas Panhandle, he realized his true passion while working at a little bakery in Amarillo.
Training in San Francisco and France helped Clint hone his baking skills. His French roots, paired with an inspired, energetic personality, fueled the start of Village Baking Co. in 2004. Clint and his wife Kim began selling bread to restaurants and at local farmers markets. As the business grew, the Coopers moved into a new space on University Blvd.
There, the family would begin selling tasty treats to the enthusiastic surrounding neighborhood. Originally open at one location for two days a week, Village Baking Co. now has two locations across DFW. We hope to continue growing and reaching out to more of the metroplex with our meticulously crafted French baked goods.
