LEBANON, Pa. (WHTM) — A family-run cafe and bakery named “Mill 72” will soon open a new location in Lebanon County.
Mill 72, established in 2018, officially opened its first location in Manheim in February 2019, according to Mill 72 co-owner Brian Miller.
The cafe and bakery’s name, “Mill 72,” is representative of two things, according to their website:
- “Mill” comes from the family’s surname, Miller, and also represents the family’s history of owning and working in a family corn mill.
- “72”, represents the location of their bakery and cafe along Manheim Road. 72.
Mill 72 offers many food and beverage options to its customers – offering over 20 different specialty coffee/tea beverages, freshly baked pastries, all day breakfast and lunch, salads, sandwiches, soups, etc., according to their website.
The cafe and bakery also have two other locations based in Manheim – one location offers a full food and drink menu, while their smaller location near Pleasant View Communities only offers drinks and pastries.
The Mill 72 sites in Mannheim are located at:
- 45 N. Main St. Manheim (full menu available)
- 544 N Penryn Rd. Manheim (Just drinks and pastries)
According to Miller, the family decided on their new location in Lebanon County for a multitude of reasons – starting with being closer to one of their daughters who recently moved to Lebanon. Mill 72 also needed more kitchen space due to growing demand for their products – so they chose a 5,000 square foot space to move into.
With the opening of their third location, Mill 72 expects to create 12 to 15 jobs, mostly part-time. According to Miller, Lebanon Mill 72 has several available positions they are hiring for, such as: bakers, line cooks, and baristas.
The new Mill 72 location is expected to open in the spring of 2023, according to Miller. The new Mill 72 will be located at 1784 Quentin Rd. in Lebanon, just off Rt.72 – adding to developments already growing in this part of Lebanon. Currently, the family believe the new Mill 72 will share similar hours with their Manheim locations, which are:
- Tuesday to Friday // 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- Saturday // 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“One of the things we really want others to know is that this is more than just a business for us,” Miller said. “It’s a place where the community comes together and has fun.”
