    Expect a customized bread program

    Since 1993 we’ve helped James Beard winners, fast-casual start-ups, and established, multi-unit grocers create affordable and accessible bread programs. We take time to understand your vision. We encourage you to share your ideas. We listen first and solve second.

    You have enough things to worry about, bread shouldn’t be one of them.

    We help clients just like you

    ZZA

    “Starting a restaurant is hard and creating just the right pizza dough is even harder. It needed to be unique, capturing just the right combination of flavors. Companion was instrumental in the development of my dough formulation. Companion listened to my expectations and then went to work. From the R&D process – testing an extensive combination of flours and leaveners, to the many tasting sessions – we arrived at what we proudly serve today! Companion also understands the supply chain of bread, so I don’t have to. As we grew, they were fantastic in coordinating distribution in multiple markets. I’m proud to say I have a thriving business and Companion helped make it happen.”

    Lucky’s

    “We set out to create an entirely different kind of store which included all things bread. Knowing what we wanted was the easy part but finding a partner who would listen was not. The team at Companion is passionate about bread and highly skilled. Their knowledge of the total bread process is outstanding. They truly are our partner for our custom products and bakery needs. Companion fulfilled our bakery vision and helped us succeed.”

    Biaggi’s

    “We believe in providing authentic, freshly prepared, high quality food that’s also affordable. Our kitchens carry super high standards for ingredients and technique. Finding a bread partner that met our expectations was challenging. Companion’s ability to customize our products quickly and efficiently is a huge tool at our disposal. Their long ferment process develops the best flavor profile we can find! When our guests want the best in baked products, we have two options – make it ourselves or call on Companion. Our partnership with Companion is a perfect match.”

    Kaldi’s

    “Coffee is our passion, but our baked goods are equally important to our customer’s experience. When looking for a bakery partner, we knew we needed someone who could meet our quality expectations and could grow with us. Companion and Kaldi’s Coffee have been partners for many years now. They have worked with us to customize several products, create new products, and even helped mass produce a few of our most popular items. We wouldn’t be Kaldi’s without Companion.”
