When was the bakery founded?
My father was originally an art painter. Because of the bad economic situation, my grandfather advised him to become a baker. Painting hardly brought in any money. Therefore he followed the advice and completed an apprenticeship as a baker. In 1961 my father started his own business and opened his bakery here in 1963. I too wanted to be a baker from a very young age. In 1977, I began an apprenticeship as a pastry chef in Cottbus and completed it successfully in 1979. After that, I was employed by my father. I completet my master training in 1985 and took over the bakery in 1993. My father worked with me until he retired.
Which products do you offer?
Mainly breads, rolls and cakes are offered, but also small biscuits, different kinds of cakes and snacks. For customers who are looking for a special gift, we offer individually designed photo cakes, for example.
What has changed since you took over the bakery?
I used to be a member of the bakers’ regulars’ table, which was started by my father. In the mid-90s, the sence of community declined and the regulars’ table sadly disbanded.
What is your recognition feature?
My two recognizable features are the tagline: “A path worth taking.” and our own design of our company signboard with the picture of my father and me as a little boy in baker’s uniform.
