Additional Information

Stroehmann’s Bread is a product of Stroehmann Bakeries.  The business, created by Fred G. Stroehmann, began as a store in Ohio in 1892, and by 1911 Stroehmann opened a baking plant to begin offering baked goods as part of the services. Other locations soon opened in West Virginia. Three bakeries were sold in 1922, but Stroehmann’s sons opened other bakeries in Pennsylvania. In 1927 the company created a new offering: sliced white bread. 

The Stroehmann family’s German roots are demonstrated in commercials from the 1960s, where an animated “Grandpa Stroehmann” speaks about his bread in German-accented English with a few words peppered in. Today the company is owned by Bimbo Bakeries USA.
