La Brea

Rising to the Occasion

After 25 years of business, La Brea Bakery shakes things up.

La Brea Bakery rebranded itself for the first time in 25 years, updating its logo, packaging, and café to reflect its expanding vision while also doubling down on its commitment to supply fresh bread both to foodservice companies and consumers.

La Brea, which was originally built to supply a single restaurant and is now the largest artisanal bakery in the U.S., supplies restaurants and food retail around the world with fresh breads. It also operates two cafés and licenses a quick-service concept with sandwiches and baked goods.

Morning Comforts

Baked goods have been a staple in the quick-serve industry for decades, but innovation in the space has boomed as several operators step up their a.m. offerings to compete in that increasingly lucrative daypart.

Coffee concepts are a natural fit for baked goods. In addition to a morning cup of java, many customers anticipate a variety of baked breakfast items behind the bakery glass case, from syrupy sweet cinnamon rolls to savory crusted quiche.
