Duchess Bakery co-owners Jason and Stephanie Neal were joined by employees and Cullman officials to cut the ribbon on the bakery after its official reopening Friday morning. Duchess was closed for a short time after the retirement of previous owner Larry Bontrager, but the Neals and with co-owner Roger Rich purchased Duchess in June to continue the bakery's 81 years of serving fresh donuts and sweets to the people of Cullman.
