Designed by Trapolin-Peer Architects and CDI Solutions, the highly anticipated Dough Nguyener’s Bakery opened in Spring 2023 in Gretna, Louisiana. The business’ moniker cleverly incorporates founder Betty Archote’s family name, Nguyen, pronounced as “win.” This playful twist emphasizes the concept of being a “dough winner” and the winning taste of traditional Vietnamese flavors with modern flair. Archote, renowned for her success with four other restaurants, collaborates with her family to bring together an exciting fusion of flavors and culinary experiences.
On the first floor, Dough Nguyener’s operates as a retail bakery and restaurant with a drive-thru for on-the-go-snacks and drinks. AOS worked with the interior design team at CDI Solutions to furnish the café, which strikes a harmonious blend of contemporary and rustic elements. The inviting atmosphere is made up of casual booths, bar-height seating, and an enticing outdoor dining area. In the back of house, they also have a production bakery for baguettes, doughnuts and—during Carnival season—king cakes that ship nationwide. A second floor office also provides a dedicated space for daily business operations.
