Burny Brothers Bakery was founded in 1910 in Chicago, Illinois by a working-class immigrant family, and grew to become a successful, uniquely American enterprise. The founding family sold its interest in 1963 to Beatrice Foods Co., which in turn sold the wholesale division in 1976, and in 1979 sold the retail division, brand, and remaining assets to Entenmann's Bakery of New York, at which time the Burny Bros. Bakery/Burny Bakers brand was removed from the retail market.

This blog serves to display some memorabilia and to answer any questions, if we can, about Burny Bros. Bakery. It was inspired by a single post on Chowhound, which generated many email inquiries from those who remember fondly this former bakery.
