MCL Bakery has been in business since the 1950s, and the Upper Arlington location has been operating since 1969.

General manager Candace Ward is excited about the new location at 1365 Kingsdale Center that opened in December. Candace describes MCL as a casual, comfortable, family-friendly atmosphere.

All food is of "homemade quality," she said, with products prepared fresh from scratch daily.

Every day - with more than 10 entrees, 10 vegetables, 25 salad selections not to mention an array of desserts - MCL has something for everyone's tastebuds at a reasonable price.

MCL is a family owned business and currently has about 75 employees. The brand new restaurant now includes a private banquet space for groups as small as 25 and as large as 75.
The new parking lot will be open soon on the Northwest Boulevard side and will feature curbside service.

Candace said she feels the most important benefit of being an Upper Arlington Chamber member is the opportunity to network with other UA businesses and have a connection with the community. MCL has been a chamber member for 30-plus years since opening in the UA area.
