Red Ribbon Bakeshop Inc., the international bakery brand, will celebrate the opening of its first location in San Antonio, Texas, on Saturday, May 27. The new Red Ribbon bakery will be located at 8403 Highway 151 within the Shops at Westpointe, serving the city’s West Side area. The highly visible spot also offers convenient access to Highway 151 and Loop 410, two of the city’s major thoroughfares. The unit marks its third location in the state of Texas and its 40th store in the U.S

While the bakeshop is best known for its cakes — considered a special celebration “must have” for many fans — Red Ribbon also features a line-up of both sweet and savory pastries that are perfect for everyday snacking occasions. These include its signature Mango Supreme Cake with three layers of moist white chiffon cake filled with cream and a golden, mango-filled glaze; Ube Overload Cake, a Filipino confection known for its striking shade of purple, derived from purple yam and Rocky Road Cake, with three layers of rich chocolate pound cake filled with cashew nuts, marshmallows and chocolate cream. The menu also features a chicken empanada, Black Forest cake and more.

“For many of our fans, no holiday, family gathering, or other special occasion is complete without a special treat from Red Ribbon,” said Agnes Briones, business unit head, Red Ribbon Bakeshop, Inc. “From our iconic Mango Supreme Cake to our Butter Mamon pastries – and many other delicious goodies in between – we can’t wait to introduce our unique bakery offerings to San Antonians who want to treat themselves and their families to something delightfully different that they won’t find anywhere else.”

Red Ribbon’s new home in San Antonio joins the brand’s two existing bakeshops in the Lone Star State, both of which are in the city of Houston (13421 Westheimer Road and 8001 South Main Street). In the coming months, Red Ribbon will be making its premiere in more U.S. locales, including Wheaton, Maryland, which will be its first location in that state, and Brooklyn, New York, which will join its existing location in the neighboring borough of Queens.
