The glass cases are empty Tuesday afternoon at El Bolillo in Pasadena. But Wednesday morning, they will be filled with rows of empanadas, conchas, maranitos and, of course, bolillos.

Foodies and fans have buzzed for months on social media about the new location, located at Southmore and Pasadena Boulevard. They'll finally get a taste when the doors open at 5 a.m. Wednesday.

YOUR KIDS CAN SWALLOW THESE: El Bolillo is now selling fidget spinner cookies

Owner Kirk Michaelis -- known as El Bolillo, or the white guy -- started work in Oct. 2015 on his new venture, which encompasses three properties at approximately 12,000 square feet. It's his biggest location yet, following popular stores on S. Wayside and Airline.

The layout is similar to the Wayside location and includes more parking and an easier flow for customers. But other than that, it's the pan dulce customers have come to love.

"It's an exciting time for us to grow and be part of the community," Michaelis says.

His team has been working since late Monday night on the bread and will begin baking at 1 a.m. for the 5 a.m. opening.

UNICONCHAS: Forget frappuccinos because this Houston bakery is making unicorn sweet bread

The first 50 customers get an El Bolillo T-shirt, and there will be specials throughout the week.

And expect to see more trend-hopping pieces like the wildly popular uniconchas and the fidget spinner cookies

"I have a bunch of young-blooded people now working for me, including my daughter," Michaelis says. "They're getting real creative. They see the trends. I'm just giving them free reign to have fun."
