Breadsmith was founded in 1993 with the philosophy that ‘we have old-world values in a new world.’ We make the finest artisan breads in the time-honored traditional way, by hand without additives and preservatives, using only the best ingredients. Our dough is never frozen and our breads are baked in a five-ton, European hearth stone oven. We also make specialty breads and a wide range of cookies, muffins and sweets. Breadsmith artisan bakeries can now be found throughout the nation, and our franchising office is located in Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin.
We have received accolades for our European-style breads including top honors from Bon Appétit magazine, Modern Baking, International Culinary Salon, National Restaurant Association and “Best of” awards throughout the country.
We're committed to being actively engaged in each of the communities we serve. Through partnerships with local non-profit organizations, we demonstrate our commitment to community involvement through product and gift certificate donations, sponsorships of local events, and community fundraisers. Our bakeries also take advantage of locally sourced products such as honey, fruits, and vegetables when making their baked goods. In addition, each Breadsmith location donates its unsold baked goods to local food pantries at the end of each day.
