John founded Bread Brothers Bakery in 2006, but the story of Bread Brothers began long before that....
He learned to bake at his mother, Lorraine's side. She was a skilled baker her learned from her mother, Della in the family bakery on their wheat farm in Sutherland, Utah in the 1940s. Della supplied neighbors & the local grocery store with her well loved breads & donuts. Lorraine baked with her mother & also farmed wheat alongside her father, Max.
John was always passionate about keeping the family baking tradition alive. He honed his skills in culinary school, became a chef, & began selling his breads at local markets & on street corners, testing & perfecting his recipes.
Our journey together began in 2012. Sarah was a single mom who needed help feeding her family better & John knew just what to do. We were married that year & the next phase of Bread Brothers began.
We've met many of our customers at farmer's markets here in Phoenix & many more who've pulled over at our current location to find out more about the kid (our son, Alex) waving the cinnamon roll sign at the end of the road. Now we bake personally for our customers & clients at our ranch home location in Mesa.
John's uncles continue to run the family's farm & we mill their all natural wheat for many of our products from breads & cereals to cinnamon rolls & fresh milled flour. It's our mission to bring you baked goods from a family business that is truly farm to table.
John's Uncle Dave still works the farm he grew up on. His wheat is 100% all natural and the pride of our bakery.
Max & Della Johnson started working the farm in Sutherland, UT in 1943. Della started a bakery in their home on the farm & eventually supplied the local grocery store with baked goods. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
We bake by pre-order & consider our customers part of our Bread Brothers Family. If we haven't had the chance to bake for you yet, we'd love to meet you!
