Corpus Christi’s Butter Krust Bakery To Become Butter Krust Storage
The old Butter Crust Bakery building at 2002 Ayers St. in Corpus Christi is being converted into a climate-controlled storage. Built in 1938, the building has been vacant for the past 20 years. Ronald Fremin and Chris Genard of Louisiana purchased the property in August and have already started work on the renovation.
While the interior will be dramatically different — ovens replaced with both residential and commercial storage units — the outside will retain the integrity of its original design. The new owners want to honor the building’s history. They named their new business Butter Krust Storage LLC.
The renovation, which costs about $950,000, is expected to be complete in March. Fremin and Genard have developed other commercial properties in nearby Robstown and Refugio.
