Lewis Bakeries, Inc.

In 1925, three brothers took out a $300 mortgage on their mother’s house to open a bakery inside a Southern Illinois cabin. The breads of Amos, Armold and Jack Lewis were delivered daily by Ford Model T trucks to nearby homes. By the 1950s, the family operation had grown into a major regional bakery, thanks in part to the creation of a brand now synonymous with freshly baked bread in Midwestern households, Bunny Bread. Well-known brands, such as Lewis Bake Shop and Healthy Life, are also baked and distributed by Lewis Brothers Bakeries.

“As a retired 22-year US Navy veteran, transitioning into civilian life was a significant milestone for me, and finding a workplace that values dedication, excellence, and community has been truly rewarding.”
Cory King, US Navy, Labor Relations Manager
