Burney’s Sweets and More will open in Mayfaire Community Center this summer.

A Mayfaire spokeswoman said the franchise is moving into the former Duck Donuts location on Parker Farm Drive.

Burney’s is a family owned business that opened its flagship store in Elizabethtown in 2011. Since then, franchises have opened in 10 other locations across the state, including Brunswick and Pender Counties, but this will be the first location in New Hanover County.

While some of the other Burney’s offer sandwiches, this location will only sell sweets, such as the popular 15 layer cakes, cheesecakes, and of course, croissants.

The Wilmington franchise owner said opening a Burney’s here had been an idea of his for the past few years. Construction is underway right now. The bakery should open this summer.
