The Next Chapter Is About To Begin For Wainscott’s Beloved Breadzilla

authorStaff Writer on Jan 10, 2022

This week, the Highway Group announced its upcoming acquisition of the widely celebrated Wainscott bakery, Breadzilla. Located at 84 Wainscott NW Road, the spring 2022 relaunch will become the new home base for the group’s Autostrada Catering, which provides an array of bespoke offerings, from a mobile wood-fired pizza oven to large-scale wedding events. Through this next stage for both Autostrada Catering and Breadzilla, Highway Group strives to preserve the bakery’s prominent offerings and essential staff members.

Longtime fans of the Wainscott fixture, the Highway Group team is also behind Highway Restaurant & Bar in East Hampton and Main Street Tavern in Amagansett.

“We are grateful for the encouraging support we received from Breadzilla owners, Brad Thompson and Nancy Hollister, and are working with them to maintain the core attractions of the business and their team as we take on the next chapter for both concepts,” said Peter Pizarro, the Highway Group’s director of operations. “The Highway Group wishes the best for Breadzilla owners as they retire from the day-to-day baking business and we look forward to their next venture when they share their favorite recipes in a soon to be published cookbook.”

With the guidance of Breadzilla’s original owners, Highway Group will operate both the bakery and catering from the original space. Harnessing a successful track record with world-class restaurants, including Eleven Madison Park, Shuko, Pasquale Jones, and more, Highway is eager to expand Autostrada while continuing a grab-and-go service with renowned Breadzilla classics provided by familiar faces.

The team will maintain the bakery’s well-established draw to locals and visitors alike, serving an array of fresh sandwiches, salads, breads, and desserts. For various at-home special events, Highway’s Autostrada will continue to offer custom wood-fired experiences by a private chef.
