A Bit of History
Our Founder, Sheila McCann in 1996 traded in her trial attorney suit for a House of Bread apron in order to pursue a more positive career. Her goal was to develop a business that benefited both her and her community, scratch baked fresh bread like her beloved grandma used to make was impossible to find in the local grocery store. Sheila’s research found, to no great surprise, that Bread was one of the most purchased food items in the American pantry. That’s what set Sheila’s dream of recreating the Bread from her childhood into motion and the House of Bread was born; an inviting, naturally wholesome Bakery Café offering the freshest and tastiest products available.

Why You Should Join The House of Bread Team

Strong and Growing Segment

Between fast food and fine dining lies the rapidly growing fast casual café segment. As American consumption trends toward fresher, healthier choices, fast food chain sales have declined. A House of Bread Bakery Café provides busy consumers with fresh, wholesome, scratch made breads, pastries, soups, sandwiches and salads in a comfortable order-at-the-counter setting at competitive prices.

Market Growth

Today’s consumers want delicious, healthy, natural food made locally by people they know and trust. House of Bread Bakery Cafés upscale menu items are made using all natural ingredients and are produced in an inviting atmosphere.

Truly Scratch Baked Breads

Market surveys consistently indicate that the number one consideration in the choice of a sandwich is the quality of the bread. Other sandwich concepts promote their fresh out-of-the-oven bread but fail to mention that the bread is delivered frozen and is full of artificial ingredients and preservatives. House of Bread Bakery Cafés have an open production kitchen where we mix, shape and bake our bread in full view of our customers.
