Celebrating 1906

We’re going back to 1906, when the Franz Family first started baking their own bread in Portland Oregon. Brothers Engelbert, Joseph & Ignaz Franz emigrated from Germany & after years of hard work in their uncle’s bakery, they purchased their own bakery on NW 16th & Glisan. They baked late in the evening & early in the morning, then delivered the bread in wagons 6 days a week. They were praised for using only quality ingredients & having the perfect texture to their bread; high standards that have continued for over 100 years. Franz’s 1906 bread imparts a delicious, nostalgic flavor through a classic & timeless recipe brought back to you today!
