Note: This story was last updated April 28 at 3:30pm to include the exact address of the new Batch House and renderings of the space.
Months after the Batch House flooded in a freak November storm, owner Cristina Rojas-Agurcia (aka the Batchmaker) has secured a new location on Berryhill Road on the edge of Seversville and Enderly Park in west Charlotte.
What to expect: The new Batch House will have all the treats we’ve missed, including the signature oatmeal creme pies and Tres Leches draft lattes. Expect some new desserts Rojas-Agurcia has cooked up at home, too, like her take on Dunk-A-Roos and some new creme pie combinations. “I thought of one today that’s going to be a monster,” Rojas-Agurcia said.
- The 1,435-square-foot space is currently under construction. Rojas-Agurcia is aiming for a late summer opening.
- It will be connected to other commercial space through “The Mixing Yard,” an outdoor plaza with communal seating and a food truck zone.
- The Batch House bakery will be a part of the Station West development.
Location: The exact address is 901 Berryhill Road.
I know I’m not the only one with an insatiable oatmeal creme pie craving. So in the meantime, look out for monthly batch boxes and pop-ups this summer at the new shop. (Check the Batchmaker Instagram for details.)
- The next one will be a Mother’s Day pop-up event at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 8 outside the new space.
Quick background: Batch House had been open only about a year on Bryant Street when Irwin Creek came over its banks in a record day of flooding in November, not long after its one-year anniversary. The shop’s been closed since.
Rojas-Agurcia says the process has been exhausting but the Charlotte community has kept her going. “That was worth this awful year. That was worth fighting for.”
