The story of swissbäkers is simple. After moving from Switzerland, Helene and Thomas began baking in their home in Reading, MA. They sold pretzel rolls and croissants locally, which expanded into farmers markets, then local caterings. Today, swissbäkers has multiple locations including the original location in Reading, MA, farmers markets across the greater Boston area, and a 16,000 square foot bakery in Allston. Swissbäkers has gone through an exciting growth period over the years and we are proud to mention that we have been recently featured on Phantom Gourmet, in the great show of channel 5 Chronical and written about in The Boston Chronicle, The Boston Globe and Boston Magazine.
