About Weinrich’s Bakery
Weinrich’s Bakery origins first began in 1919 when Herman Weinrich arrived at Ellis Island from Germany and decided to set up shop. Throughout its 100 years of history and expert baking, Herman Weinrich has operated their bakery in locations such as New York, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. The Willow Grove, PA, location has been running ever since 1952 and is still owned and run by the Weinrich family.
Striving every day to ensure their customers receive high-caliber products and excellent customer service, on many days three generations of the Weinrich family can be seen working hard side-by-side.
