With origins in Ocean City, Maryland, franchise owner looking to “replicate childhood and summertime memories” for consumers in Baltimore metropolitan area
Fractured Prune Doughnuts, the iconic Ocean City-based bakery shop recognized for its made-to-order doughnut specialties featuring glazed toppings, plans to open its newest store location within Metro Centre at Owings Mills, a Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) encircling the Owings Mills Metro Station in northwest Baltimore County, tomorrow. Franchise owners Meghann and Shawn Salafia, which own the franchise expansion rights for Carroll County, Howard County, Southern Pennsylvania and parts of Baltimore County, intend to open one or two locations per year in a measured roll-out.
Last week, in Owings Mills they cut the ribbon to celebrate the completion of a new road that connects Metro Centre at Owings Mills to Owings Mills Mall, the Owings Mills Town Center and the larger northwest Baltimore County community. Sure, it’s just one road, but this simple connection will bridge all of our favorite Owings Mills destinations, while doing away with so much congestion that can be frustrating to deal with when you’re out for a fun day of shopping, or on your way to a movie. Of course, it also makes the new residential side of Metro Centre all the more appealing too– not that it really needed it. The folks in charge of development have been working long and hard on what they call, “creating a sense of place” in Owings Mills. And that is exactly what they’ve done.

Who says the suburbs have to be boring?
Before Saks Fifth Avenue closed in 1996 (yes, newcomers, we once had a Saks!), Owings Mills was filled with high-end shopping, movie theaters and restaurants that attracted a crowd.
Owings Mills is about to have a comeback.
