A little dough and a lot of passion…

That’s been our recipe since we pulled the first loaves out of our stone ovens in 1993. We’ve always had a knack for weaving the finest ingredients into uniquely crafted breads and pastries, while maintaining focus on the four C’s – our Companions, our Customers, our Community and our Company.

For almost 30 years we’ve continued to grow our relationships and our product offerings while never compromising on our core values. It’s a study in a commitment to quality that’s reflected on the tables of grocery shoppers, restaurants, hotels, hospitals and dozens of our other Companions, and an invitation to all across the greater St. Louis area and beyond to

break more bread.


Thirty years. A lot of milestones in that period.
Expansions. New products. A  pope.

We’ve put together a timeline of memorable moments in Companion history. Click the link below and enjoy the ride!

Featured Customer

We’ve had the honor and pleasure of working with some pretty great folks over the years, many of whom we’re still proud to call partners after 30 years.

this week we feature…

Portrait of chef Bill Cardwell

What can we say about Bill Cardwell? As we were pulling the first baguettes out of our stone hearth oven in 1993, the highly praised Owner and Executive Chef of his namesake restaurant in Clayton was first in line to sign up for daily delivery of our artisan breads. Over the years our businesses grew together, us expanding our client base across St. Louis and Bill expanding his dining concepts to a highly acclaimed Cardwell’s location at Frontenac Plaza and, later, BC’s Kitchen. We were there, working together, every step of the way.

When Bill announced his semi-retirement in 2018 we were first in line to congratulate him on an extraordinary career, and thank him for his trust, friendship and collaborative spirit. For that, we will be forever grateful.
