The Awrey family moved to Detroit from Ontario in 1910. In an effort to support her family, Elizabeth Awrey began to sell bread, cookies, cakes and pies, all baked in her home's coal-fired oven. While not the original income plan for the family, Mrs. Awrey's creations became so popular that the family's next steps were clear: to go into the baking business.
Since its entrepreneurial beginnings, Awrey's Bakery has grown from a local Detroit tradition to an American staple found in hotels, restaurants, and select international establishments.
