Egypt Star Bakery Allentown has been a landmark since the 1930’s when the Star bakery in Egypt, PA was lost to a fire, and the owners purchased the Star Baking Company in Allentown. The two names were combined and Egypt Star Bakery was born. Since then, the bakery has been family owned, employing neighbors and their family members for over eighty years.
Local Bakers, Local Jobs
We have been fortunate and have had three generations from some families employed here over several years. People came here for employment because in all of our years in business we have never had to lay an employee off, we offer job security. Many of these neighbors started their careers here and retired from here fifty years later.
Traditions Then & Now
In the early years, Egypt Star Bakery sent drivers out with their goods to deliver to homes door to door. While door to door delivery is no longer a part of our business many other things remain. The ovens we bake our bread in are brick ovens operated by gas, coal and oil; most of them have been in our bakery for more than 8 decades.
Evolution of Our Bakery
As demographics have shifted in the Lehigh Valley so has our customer base as we have added new customers with different tastes. We are also fortunate to have many local businesses sell our product or use it to make theirs. We continue to strive to produce high quality, popular bakery items to please both the wonderful customers we’ve known for many years and those we add every day. We thank each of you for choosing to do business with us because without our loyal customers we would not have enjoyed all these years of business.
