Breadzilla, the ever-popular and long-for-sale Wainscott bakery, sandwich, and gourmet shop, finally found a buyer in the Highway Group. The group includes Highway Restaurant and Bar in East Hampton and Main Street Tavern in Amagansett.

The new Breadzilla will reopen in the spring as a location for both the bakery and the company's Autostrada Catering. According to a press release, the new owners will strive "to preserve the adored bakery's prominent offerings and essential staff members."

Nancy Hollister and Brad Thompson, the bakery's founders and retiring owners, will serve as advisers to the new endeavor and are working on a cookbook of their favorite recipes.

Autostrada's catering options include a mobile wood-fired pizza oven, private chef home dinners, and large-scale events such as weddings. Highway Group said it will expand the catering arm while continuing to serve the familiar sandwiches, salads, breads, and desserts at the site. More information and details will be announced in the spring. The bakery, which initially said it would be closed until Jan. 22, will now be closed for the winter.
