It started with a vision
In 1941 a man with a vision set out to build a business by helping busy corner bakeries. Equipped with one small blender, he began producing bread and donut mixes and selling them to local bakers, founding what is now Bake’n Joy Foods, Inc.
That man was Abraham Ogan. Mr. Ogan started a New England family business that is still thriving today with the third generation in leadership. How has Bake’n Joy survived the ups and downs of business for over 70 years? Through product innovation, coupled with the desire and ability to take risks, to bring customers what they need and want. Our company operates with a deep commitment to our customers’ success.
From 1941 through 1980, we focused on providing quality mixes and bases for breads, donuts, muffins, Danish, and cookies to a growing number of bakery, supermarket and foodservice customers.
Meeting Changing Customer Needs
Recognizing the trend in labor shortages in the baking industry, our innovative Research & Development team created the first ever thaw-scoop-and-bake frozen batters in 1980. Since then, the frozen category has become paramount to our future growth and has set the trend for product development.
Bake’n Joy’s product offering has grown to include mixes and bases, frozen batters for muffins, cakes and cookies; FreshBakes® predeposited muffin batters; and PanFree® predeposited batters for muffins, loaves and cupcakes. In 2002, we expanded our frozen batter line by acquiring the New York-based Country Muffin & Cake Company.
As an innovative leader, Bake’n Joy has been ahead of the curve in many consumer trends by developing great-tasting niche products, such as Fat Free, Low Fat, Low Carb, Sugar Free, Fortified, 100% Whole Grain, and Clean Label.
Who we are Today Today, we are proud to call Boston Coffee Cake our own! Since the brand’s inception 25 years ago, Boston Coffee Cake products have been heralded for their high quality and strong customer following. In 2009, a state-of-the-art bakery was built at our North Andover headquarters to produce the high-quality coffee cakes, loaf cakes and dessert cakes under the Boston Coffee Cake brand. The product category continues to grow as we introduce new baked items under the Boston Coffee Cake brand.
Our strong commitment to our customers’ successes leads us to continue to build our in-store bakery and foodservice business with fully-baked products. Bake’n Joy is strongly positioned to better service customer needs in many different types of operations. We remain committed to providing not only top-quality products, but to providing the best service and value to our customers.
With the third generation at the helm, Bake’n Joy continues to be a family-owned and privately-held company. Robert M. Ogan is President/CEO, with Jack Waldron as COO, George Fregone as VP of Marketing and Business Development, Mark Ake as VP of Sales.
Message of President
In 2011 we celebrated 70 years. I am so proud of the heritage my grandfather started with the A.E. Ogan Company back in 1941. Throughout our 70 years, we have stayed true to my grandfather’s original vision – providing solutions to the busy baker.
Through the years, I have seen our company grow, evolve and weather many storms. Our product focus has changed in answer to consumer trends and to better provide our customers with the products they need. One thing remains constant: our strict commitment to always put our customers first.
Our company mission and vision statements are centered on building our customers’ successes. We realize that it is only through our customers’ success that we can succeed. I’m proud not only of my family’s longstanding tradition, but of each and every one of our associates who contributes to Bake’n Joy’s success every day. I look forward to continuing to bring my grandfather’s vision to life in the days ahead.
I invite you to discover the opportunities that Bake’n Joy offers you.
