It’s funny how things just find you. I was feeling nostalgic one day, reminiscing about my childhood and the days I would help my mother bake bread at home. I clearly remember the kitchen, the texture of the dough and the smell of our bread coming hot out of the oven. I decided to try replicating the recipe at home and what happened next was something I could not imagine.
The bread was good. Really, good. Like everyone wanted more of it, good. So, I started baking more and experimenting with recipes and before you knew it, I was baking bread every week in my home kitchen for friends and family. I was baking late at night and early in the morning, and I was proofing and kneading between meetings. It wasn’t until my son’s preschool teacher wanted to pay me for my bread that I thought that I could sell my bread. In fact, my six-year-old daughter named the company. She commented that I was baking a lot of bread and asked if I was selling it. I told her yes and she replied that I was a bread man baking company. And it was born.
Fast forward and now we proudly serve Houston restaurants and hotels and I am proud to say that my hands touch every loaf. It was (and still is) a labor of love and I was (and still am) obsessed with each piece that comes out of the bakery.
I hope you love it. In fact, I know you will. It’s bread after all, and who doesn’t love bread?
