PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - The new location of the Oakmont Bakery opened its doors for the first time on Tuesday morning. 

The 19,000 square foot building with state of the art equipment sits less than a mile away from the original location.  

"We have a full restaurant kitchen now, which we didn't have before,” said Marc Serrao, owner of the Oakmont Bakery, during an interview with KDKA Radio on Tuesday.

Not only was their limited space causing issues, but it was becoming harder for employees to communicate with each other at the previous location.

"It was very hard, elbow to elbow for the last few years. Getting through this Christmas was really hard for everyone, but everyone pulled together," Serrao explains. 

The new environment also provides a lot more space for customers to eat and interact; there will be 93 seats inside and 80 outside.

Check out KDKA Radio and Sparkt's Marty Griffin give a tour of the new facility in the video above.
