Our Story

Lewis Bakeries truck from 1925Lewis Bakeries, Inc. owned and operated by the Lewis family, has been a part of our consumer’s lives for over 90 years. Born in 1925, Lewis Bakeries was formed by three brothers in a log cabin. The baking tradition has been passed down through the generations in the Lewis Family and we are always looking for new ways to meet our consumer’s needs.

We are committed to applying the principles of sustainability in all aspects of our business which we share more about in our Corporate ResponsibilityOur bakeries comply with SA8000 to ensure fair establishment and improvement of workers’ rights, workplace conditions and an effective management system as well as BRC to ensure food quality and safety. 

Lewis Bakeries, Inc. is supportive of efforts to improve animal welfare and is committing to sourcing 100 percent cage-free eggs by 2025. Currently, a very limited number of Lewis-produced bakery products contain eggs as ingredients.

One of our newest additions to our brands is our Lewis Bake Shop Half Loaf. These half loaves were a request from our consumers, you spoke and we listened! Try all of our flavors and decide which one is your favorite! You can buy our bread online and get it directly sent to your house, or find our products in your local stores!

Another one of our consumer’s favorite brands, Bunny Bread, was created by R. Jack Lewis, Sr. in 1947. Bunny Bread has been a part of our consumer’s lives and homes for over 50 years! As a family, our goal has always been to produce the best bakery products and respond to our consumer’s needs.

Healthy Life Bread was introduced in 1991 originally as a diet bread. Over the years we’ve gained more and more fans of our healthy breads and have provided more dieters with breads that help to suit their needs for a healthy lifestyle.

Our company is headquartered in Evansville, Indiana with additional bakeries in Fort Wayne, LaPorte and Vincennes. We also have one bakery located in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Lewis Bakeries is one of the few remaining independent bakeries in the Midwest and is the largest wholesale bakery in Indiana.
