There is purpose in every table.
And from every table,
there is a new perspective.

The Ninety-Two Story

___________

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.

Héritage

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, Rick is the CEO of Betenbough Companies which has grown to include multiple brands with one common mission: To reveal God and His Kingdom through our work in the marketplace.

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.

Meet Warren

General Manager
Warren Drew found his love for coffee at 18 while working in a coffee shop – the same place where he met his wife, Naomi. After a few years, Warren began roasting his own coffee for fun, which led to a specialty roast that he sold at the local farmer’s market, and eventually to owning his own café in California. He is passionate about the Ninety-Two Bakery & Café because he loves witnessing people discover and taste delicious coffee and food.
The table reminds Warren of how Jesus did life – around the table with people He cared for with bread and wine.

Unique, delicious and grace-filled. These are words Lubbock local, Brittany Davis, uses to describe Ninety-Two Bakery & Café.

At the café, Brittany enjoys seeing the pride the Ninety-Two team takes in their work, from the beautiful artwork in their artisan coffee right down to the perfect, flaky layers on their delicious croissants.

Brittany's favorite drink is the Ninety-Two latte with oat milk, served hot.
