Former math teacher opens bakery in Louisville

Owner Yaritza Estrada said she is ready to start her new journey after teaching math for nearly two decades.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A bakery specializing in Puerto Rican cuisine celebrated its grand opening Friday at Old Walnut Plaza in the Russell neighborhood.

Bori Sweets Bakery and Delicatessen now sits with several other businesses at the development on W. Muhammad Ali Blvd., offering pastries, sandwiches and drinks.

Born in Puerto Rico, owner Yaritza Estrada said she is ready to start her new journey after teaching math for nearly two decades.

"I had to do something," Estrada said. "If I know how to bake, I have to do something for the Puerto Rican community and to let everyone know how good Puerto Rican food is."

The business is part of the Minority Business Incubator expansion led by Louisville Central Community Centers. Bori Sweets will be open Tuesday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
