Our bakeries strive to offer the highest quality, freshest products possible with knowledgeable, friendly customer service. Always top of mind are our strict standards: to make quality baked goods made with the cleanest ingredients possible, all while providing the best in taste, freshness, variety and price. Our strict shelf life standards ensure that you have maximum time to enjoy your purchased baked goods.
We also have a Central Bakery that produces, packages and ships to every store daily, resulting in fresh product and limited use of our freezer. (Freezing product is a common practice that our competitors rely upon heavily.) Always top of mind are our strict standards: to make quality baked goods with the cleanest ingredients possible, all while providing the best in taste, freshness, variety and price.
• QUALITY – We start by using all our internal resources here at Kowalski’s. We have many employees with years of experience, from bakers and pastry chefs to culinary experts who have worked together to create many of our products in the bakery. We then make sure we use the highest quality ingredients possible.
• TASTE – We spend many hours searching out new trends and flavor profiles, perfecting recipes and sometimes bringing back old classics. And, of course, we taste and approve everything before we sell it on our shelves. It’s a hard job, but somebody has to do it!
• SHELF LIFE – Our strict shelf life standards ensure that our customers have maximum time to enjoy their purchased baked goods. Many grocers stretch the boundaries of shelf life by expanding the “sell by” date, compromising the quality of their products.
• LOCAL ARTISAN BAKERS – While we bake many of our own products on-site, we also partner with local artisan bakers so we can offer the very best selection of baked goods, artisan breads, pastries and other sweet treats. We choose partners based on their ability to produce unique, quality products and strive to build right relationships that ensure sustainability.
• ARTISAN BREAD – Our Artisan Bread Tables are brimming with a diverse selection of European breads baked off daily right in our stores. Our variety surpasses any bakery in our market. We not only offer hard, crusty breads but also softer-crust breads and rolls that are unique to the market.
• GLUTEN FREE – Our Locally Made Gluten Free program focuses on quality, freshness and especially taste!
• SIGNATURE CAKE LINE – Our traditional birthday cakes are made with moist, rich cake and frosted with our Family Favorite Buttercream. This buttercream recipe has been in the family for over 30 years and is made from scratch with five simple ingredients, including real butter (not imitation flavoring). We also offer a line of Dessert Cakes that have more upscale flavor profiles. These recipes are a collaboration between Kowalski’s culinary and bakery experts. These high-quality Dessert Cakes are great for entertaining or celebrating that special occasion.
