MY GRANDMA'S OF NEW ENGLAND ®
ALL ABOUT OUR COMPANY
My Grandma's of New England® started an industry in 1990 with their original Cinnamon Walnut Coffee Cake - and with good reason. These decadent, dinner-worthy cakes are made from the finest and freshest ingredients available. The moistness and flavor of the cake are unmatched. All cakes are handmade and certified Kosher under Orthodox supervision.
And there really was a Grandma! My Grandma's of New England® started baking coffee cakes in a modest 250 square foot bakery in a remote section of Newton, Massachusetts. Baking her famous Cinnamon Walnut coffee cake in her kitchen, Grandma's business grew steadily by word of mouth. Soon, customers were driving from locations as far away as one hour to buy one of her cakes that were still warm from the oven. Completely selling out was a daily occurrence. Around major holidays, word quickly spread that if you wanted a cake for your family to enjoy, you had to place your order at least one week in advance.
One year after purchasing the company, Bob Katz (seen above) moved us into a small former muffin bakery in Dedham. With leased equipment and a revolving oven that could bake 42 cakes in an hour, we started promoting our company nationally, and hiring additional bakers and shippers. Soon two Vice Presidents were added, Dave Goldbaum and Bruce Mills. Bob's dad joined us full time, as our VP of Finance, in 1994.
Demand for our cakes was at an all time high in 1996, and in 1997, we relocated to our current facility at 1636 Hyde Park Avenue, in the Hyde Park section of Boston. Business remains solid and demand for our quality product has never been higher.
We launched our first My Grandma's Website in early 1998. Please click here to see our original Website!
Today our line includes the New England Blueberry, Granny Smith Apple, Cape Cod Cranberry, Cranberry & Blueberry (Red, White & Blue Patriot Cake), Lemon Poppy, Pineapple Coconut, Banana Walnut, Chocolate Chip Walnut, Ted Williams Chocolate & Pumpkin Spice (Sept-Dec). Our cakes are packed in a plastic freezer bag that preserves freshness whether fresh or frozen. Shelf Life is the bag is 14 days when unrefrigerated and up to 12 months if frozen. Cakes are shipped via UPS or UPS Sure Post with an estimated arrival at their destination within 4 business days of shipment (no guaranty).
Our Cakes are hand mixed and baked in rack ovens. There are NO artificial flavors, colors, preservatives or trans fats. We are certified Kosher under Orthodox supervisions and use only the freshest and best ingredients in the market, and it shows. We never compromise quality.
We offer several flavors of coffee cake in 3 sizes (8" small, 10" large & 3.2oz mini's), under both My Grandma's labels and several private labels. Our 10" large cakes are also offered Pre-Sliced for commercial resale in bakeries, cafes, specialty shops and as a convenience to our mail order customers.
We are proud of the product we bring to you and throughout the years, we've had some recognition that solidifies that pride!
