If you're a fan of doughnuts and all things baked goods, I'm sure you've heard of By The Dozen Bakery.

Located and headquartered in Machesney Park, By The Dozen Bakery, announced they will be opening a new second location in Harvard inside the former Swiss Maid Bakery at 104 East Brainard Street according to a press release.

The opening is coming soon too. By The Dozen will officially open in Harvard on Tuesday, December 1.

Rating 4.5 out 5 on TripAdvisor, reviews are very positive. One customer raved about By The Dozen's sweet rolls, while another said you can't just eat one of their outstanding donuts. TripAdvisor also has By The Dozen Bakery listed as the #1 bakery in Machesney Park.

On Yelp, customers highlighted the wedding cakes also saying By The Dozen is "probably the best bakery in the Rockford area."

All that positivity and now the sad truth. I've never had a donut, pastry, cake, or sweet roll from By The Dozen Bakery. It's not because I haven't wanted to either. If I knew, I would have made baked goods from By The Dozen in my belly a top priority.

Needless to say, if I'm creating a 2021 New Year's resolution right now, it's to try a sweet roll from By The Dozen Bakery.
