Our Heritage

In 1886, Elizabeth Mimms and Peter Schmidt started baking bread from their home and distributing it locally in Baltimore, MD.  They started with a simple philosophy which has led to 130 years of success; “The commitment to baking an excellent product, outstanding service to our customers and superior packaging.”

Schmidt Baking has been part of the H&S Family of Bakeries since 2004.  H&S Bakery was started in 1943 by Harry Tsakalos and Steve Paterakis who started out hand-making Italian bread in a brick oven in the basement of their small row home in Baltimore.

Still family owned and operated by the Paterakis family for 4 generations, we are the largest wholesale baker and distributor in the country.

With 10 bakeries throughout the east coast we distribute to 2/3rds of the country, and have partnerships with the biggest names in the food industry.  Whether though our retail, foodservice, and frozen affiliate companies, we have a robust and diversified distribution model to meet any customers needs.

The H&S family of bakery’s, including Schmidt Baking, Northeast Foods and Ottenberg’s Bakery, continues to thrive in the fast paced food industry by offering a large variety of specialty breads, rolls, English muffins and bagels, as well as customized private label or in-store bakery programs.

We are honored to continue the remarkable legacy of the Schmidt Baking Company and are committed to delighting our customers just as Elizabeth and Peter Schmidt delighted theirs.

We are industry leaders reshaping the baking industry, and are here to serve you!
