“It's All About Family!”
In 1910, the townspeople of the small South Georgia community of Claxton saw a new business open its doors. The tempting aroma of freshly-baked bread and sweet rolls served as an irresistible invitation to visit the Claxton Bakery. The bakery opened under the ownership of Savino Tos, an Italian pastry-maker, who immigrated to the United States in the early-1900's. Tos initially settled in New York City, working in a Brooklyn hotel as a master baker. During his first few years on American soil, Tos was fascinated with life in the bustling city. It provided a sense of excitement and a steady income, but as time passed, the talented baker longed for a quieter lifestyle. Faced with the opportunity to move from New York, he accepted a job in Macon, Georgia, with a company making ice cream. The young Italian instantly fell in love with the South. He frequently visited Savannah and Tybee Island on Georgia's pristine coast. On one of his trips to Savannah, he passed through the town of Claxton, a developing agricultural community. Tos was attracted by the friendliness of the people and especially liked the fact that the town was without a bakery. When the ice cream operation in Macon fell upon hard times and eventually melted, Tos decided to make Claxton his new home. The Claxton Bakery was an instant success with the townsfolk, who flocked to the small shop for delicious baked goods and homemade ice cream. During the fall, Tos decided to capture the spirit of the holiday season by offering a premium quality fruit cake, filled with nature's finest fruits and nuts.
