The Ninety-Two Bakery & Café Story

Where It Started

When dreaming up Ninety-Two Bakery & Cafe, we imagined you sitting at a French cafe, enjoying an espresso and pastry, your favorite book in hand, or a good friend in tow. We imagined your third place, a place you spend time between your first place (home) or your second place (work) - a place where you always have a seat at the table. We wanted it to be a place that feels as good as home, but is a place all your own - a place that brings warmth and a sense of safety and contentment to your heart - a place to connect, exchange ideas, and share life with friends, old and new - a place that leaves you feeling restored and invigorated.

Heritage

In 1992, Rick Betenbough had an idea to deliver quality, affordable homes in West Texas. He invited his father, Ron Betenbough, to join him on this new venture, and together they formed Betenbough Homes. When the company started, Rick and Ron agreed that they wanted to honor God through their business, and it's through that desire that they've seen the company expand in ways they never could have imagined. Today, Betenbough Companies has grown to include multiple businesses with one common mission: To reveal God and His Kingdom through our work in the marketplace.

The Rest of the Story

In 2021, the call to steward the space where Ninety-Two Bakery & Café sits was answered. Much like every other brand within Betenbough Companies, we knew the stewardship of this space would need to start with the stewardship of people. As God provided the who (the team serving our guests), the what (this bakery and café) came to life. Inspired by our love for coffee and travel, Ninety-Two Bakery & Café bakery and cafe brings the French countryside to Lubbock, TX, and is named after the year in which it all began, when a father and son came together under the same mission.
