Campbell’s Bakery, one of the most well-known bakeries across Mississippi, has been purchased by Jackson business partners and husband-and-wife duo Mary Sanders Ferriss Cavicchi and Damien Cavicchi.
The bakery, which was first opened in 1962 by Louis and Jessie Campbell, has served petit fours, tea cakes, custom cakes, and other treats to Mississippians for over 60 years.
Now, the Campbells are hoping to continue to serve the community their beloved sweets by transitioning ownership to the Cavicchi family.
“It’s an honor to be a part of the longstanding history of Campbell’s Bakery,” Mary Sanders said. “As those who love Jackson and its people, this responsibility is more than just a job. It’s a legacy.”
Mary Sanders is the owner of Ferriss & Company, a Jackson-based interior design, and branding development firm. Ferriss & Company’s work can be found at local restaurants including Tuk Tuk Boom, Sal and Mookie’s, and Aplos, among others.
Damien is an accomplished chef who serves as the Director of Culinary Operations and Executive Chef at the Country Club of Jackson. Campbell’s Bakery is the next step in Cavicchi’s extensive culinary career that includes working as the Executive Chef at the historic Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina, as well as owning Asheville restaurants Clingman Café and Sugo.
“I’ve always enjoyed the way that communities are brought together over food,” Damien said. “Campbell’s is proof of that. We are honored to play a role in Jackson to continue this tradition.”
Although Campbell’s Bakery plans to implement expanded hours in the future, the bakery will continue to be open for its normal business hours of 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday.
Over the next few months, the bakery will also begin introducing a variety of new products to its menu. The Cavicchis plan on temporarily closing for renovations of the restaurant’s interior in January 2023.
