Baked To Perfection is a great bakery & Alex Benevidez, the owner has 20+ years of experience. It is across the street from Pizza Hut in Delphos.

Butler's could have stayed and continued a thriving business if they had maintained
product quality and store hours. Whatever their family circumstances is, that's their business, but people should not claim they folded due to being "run out" and for lack of customers.
People would have shopped there as always if the quality and hours had stayed the same!

Mike's been in the bakery working since he was a kid, maybe he just got the bug to do something different, lots of people change careers, some more than once. Maybe he has plans for the storefront already, either way it's his store and his life, right?

The difference is, wind mills can't sustain themselves without them. Farmers get subsidys to the tune of a fraction of what they actually pay in taxes supporting all the toys politicians like to buy. Like aquatic centers... And wind mills.

IMO they are the best place around to have make a cake. Alex is a wonderful baker and artist, he can recreate anything and also can take your vision and make it come to life.
For those of you who don't know, Butlers closed because the owner took another job. So before rumors start just know he made the decision and wasn't forced out. I think it's sad he closed, they were the only source of freshly made donuts and pastries in town and their noodles were delicious. But people and times change. Hopefully someone with true vision will step in, I'm not sure if he's selling the store front or what.
Yeah the owner went to sell cars a greves and let his son run the shop into the ground.

The truth of the matter is, Butler's demise is due mostly due to the change in attitude towards all those tasty treats. I was working for Dolly Madison (part of Hostess) when the Atkins diet took hold. With all the talk about carbs, weight loss, diabetes, etc., the business just died off. That's why Hostess, after two bankruptcies, is no more.

Butler's was no different than Hostess/Dolly Madison. If you look at the property tax records, you'll see the Butlers where behind in their taxes, and had been struggling for some time. They tried, but because of circumstances beyond their control, they couldn't make it. Yes, it's sad but it's a story being played out in many small communities.

The new place in town will never be butlers, uses box mixes for all his cakes, nothing from scratch. Donuts are not made in house. Wish it was better!

If that's the case, why are places like "Baked To Perfection" thriving? That place is packed every day! They sell plenty of sugary "treats"! I talked to several people in the past few months who wanted to buy things from Butlers, but could no longer stop on their way to work due to the new hours. Sorry, no disrespect intended, but I personally think your theory is all wrong.

Baked to Perfection doesn't have other competing markets like walmart and any other decent market bakeries. Butler's business was a lot of downtown store employees,(anyone looked at downtown lately) and the school lunch and afternoon kids,(we know where the school now has closed lunches) and regular bakery customers started buying baked goods at Pick 'n Save, Marsh, and Walmart; that way they could drive their cars and ride around in carts at one stop places. And to Kirby, people haven't improved their diets, they just buy whats cheapest and most convenient, Little Debbie undersold Hostess, look around at what you see, more overweight, unhealthy Americans

Why does it matter so much to everyone on here why they closed? They were part of van wert, and they decided to call it quits. Opinions are great, but attach that to your statement. There's 39 comments, and I don't believe any are correct, other than those stating they will miss the place, and those mentioning they like baked to perfection. And in my opinion, whoever the person is that asked for a phone number, or direction, seriously? You somehow found topix, but you can't find google? Did you know, that you can google it, and they will give you reviews, and direction? This site is full of no namers, and people I've never heard of before, posting about people whom I've never heard of before. Get a life. Butlers closed. It's sad to some, and for whatever the reason, they will be missed. How about starting with statements, and actual facts, and not so much crap. You'd sound so much more intelligent. And this site might actually be fun, and interesting.
