Our Mission

Our heartfelt mission at Alpha Baking Company is to provide all our customers, local and nationwide, with bakery products of the highest standards, leaving them 100 percent satisfied with our extraordinary service and quality products.


A Tradition of Quality
Over the years, Alpha Baking has continued to build our tradition of quality and innovation. Time-tested recipes and baking techniques have been adapted to an efficient, mass production environment. With two plants in Chicago, Illinois, and one in LaPorte, Indiana, Alpha Baking has grown to become one of the largest specialty bakeries in the country, and its breads and buns have become synonymous with the Windy City and many other cities across America.

Alpha Baking Company was formed in 1979 when it bought Mary Ann Baking Company in Chicago. Founded in 1935, Mary Ann was the originator of the Chicago-style poppy seed hot dog bun which Alpha continues to bake for not only the Chicago market, but also for those selling Chicago-style hot dogs across the United States. In 1981, Alpha purchased the S. Rosen's Baking Company, a Chicago staple of Jewish hearth rye breads and variety rolls since 1909. Through the years, Alpha has continued to grow through the acquisition of Kreamo Bakers in South Bend, Ind., Natural Oven's in Manitowoc, WI. and National Baking Company in Chicago. Alpha Baking Company currently sells its products under the S. Rosen's, Mary Ann, Kreamo, Golden Hearth, and Natural Ovens brand names.

With more than 1,400 employees and over 300 delivery trucks, Alpha Baking Company distributes fresh bread in the upper Midwest and frozen bread across the rest of the country. Our products are sold in national restaurant chains, quick service restaurants, schools, institutions, major league sports franchises, warehouse club stores, national grocery chains, and independent grocery stores.

Alpha’s four bakeries and sixteen production lines serve the retail, foodservice, institutional, restaurant and frozen products markets. Products include rye, sourdough, Italian, French, pan and wide pan breads, Kaiser rolls, hot dog and hamburger buns, French rolls, baguettes, bagels, and organic and frozen par-baked bread products. Alpha is certified kosher at all of its plants and is certified organic in Manitowoc and one of its two Chicago plants. The company is inspected by the American Institute of Baking (AIB), Silliker Labs, the FDA and the ASI.

For decades, food industry leaders have called on Alpha Baking Company to solve complex and unique baking projects. Using the special skills and knowledge of our production specialists, we have crafted solutions for them. Our modern, high-production facility has linked old world knowledge and baking experience with today’s technology. Sixteen separate production lines efficiently produce a wide variety of high-quality baking goods for distribution all over the country. Our Midwestern location means we can provide you the products you need, no matter where you are!

If you have a special need, we can bring you a level of experience, responsiveness, and technical expertise that is unmatched in the baking industry, one that foodservice operators have depended upon since 1935. We can help you customize your foodservice operation with our extensive par-baked and frozen programs. Waste can be eliminated and shortages reduced with the added convenience of one-site “bake to order” flexibility. We quickly freeze these products to lock in freshness, quality, and taste. You complete the process, baking what you need, when you need it, with perfect results every time. Contact us today to make your own tradition of quality!
