Paramount Bakeries was established on the corner of Davenport Avenue & N. 8th Street in Newark, NJ in 1924. The alluring smell of brick oven hearth baked bread waft through the neighborhood and brought droves of people through the doors.
Flash forward nearly a century later and we are still baking in brick ovens in the same neighborhood. Our baking approach is still rooted in old-world techniques which yields uncompromising attention to detail & quality.
The outstanding flavor of our bread starts with using simple ingredients and the best water in the country. Once our batches are mixed they undergo what's known as retarding or cold-proofing. This 18-hour process enables our dough to develop outstanding flavor naturally, without the use of added sugar or other flavor additives.
We believe in hearth baked bread! Our ovens are imported from Italy and built brick by brick to ensure consistent and evenly baked crusty bread. Baking in this style allows for the most delicious flavor and aroma.
Our deliveries are made every day before the sun rises. The bread arrives to each store front only hours after being baked. Our goal is to provide our customers with maximum freshness.
As a family owned business we strive to be great every day. We've taken tremendous pride in serving our customers and our community for close to 100 years. We plan on doing the same for the next 100 years!
