In their little bakehouse (pictured above) in Caledon, Ontario, Linda Haynes and Martin Connell crafted artisan bread and baguettes using nothing but the simplest, natural ingredients, old world starter doughs, long fermentation periods and stone baking. Linda & Martin gifted their bundles of deliciousness to friends and family who encouraged them to start their very own artisan bakery...so they did! In 1993, at King & Spadina, the ACE Bakery® was born.
Officially in the Bakery Business
The demand for ACE Bakery® artisan bread was at an all time high, so Linda and Martin decided to pursue the momentum and opened a fully operational bakery at Keele & Lawrence, north of Toronto. ACE Bakery® had the capacity to deliver fresh bread to restaurants and grocery stores around the city, and eventually across North America.
Uncompromisingly Great Bread
Today, ACE Bakery® breads are available in restaurants and supermarkets across Canada and the USA. Our portfolio has grown to include remarkable baguettes and specialty loaves, gourmet burger buns, and sandwich rolls. And we still make our products the very same way as we did in the original bakehouse.
