A restaurant on the Oregon Coast has some new celebrity owners. The Sweet Shop Gearhart has been purchased by Pen Pen Industries LLC, of Portland, which lists Grammy Award winner André Allen Anjos as the registered agent.
“While we’re not quite ready to make a formal announcement about our plans, I can confirm that I purchased it with Ireland Baldwin,” Anjos said in an email. “We want to maintain the spirit of the place with coffee/wine/beer/ice cream, which is what drew us to it in the first place.
“We do have some exciting plans for it, but we’re gonna spend the winter redoing it. We’ll reach out when things are closer to reopening.”
The Portland-based musician, known by his stage name, RAC, won a Grammy in 2017 for his remix of Bob Moses’ “Tearing Me Up.”
Baldwin is a fashion model and actress who is the daughter of actors Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger.
Traci Williams, who has owned the Sweet Shop for the past several years, announced the $1 million sale Tuesday.
Like many who walked through the door, Williams said, Baldwin started as a customer and became a friend.
“We broke bread, shared a love of dogs, a good cheese plate, laughs and tears,” Williams said. “She has a huge heart, a passion for animal rights, and wants to do good in the world. It was great to get to know her and see the concept develop.”
Real estate agent Ann Samuelson said Williams received multiple offers for the shop, which includes ice cream, coffee and places to sit in a garden outside. “It’s a unique property,” she said. “It’s the heart of Gearhart and the right buyer came along.”
