“Come in and enjoy the aroma”
Wilhelm Resch grew up on his parents Franz and Theresia’s farm outside the small German town of Neiderwinden. In1906 he immigrated to the United States of America in search of a better way of life for his family. Arriving in New York, he found employment at a watch factory working alongside his Father’s brother Frank, who also had recently left Germany during those hard years. Hearing of the strong Columbus, Ohio German community the men quit their jobs after a brief time and headed to the Buckeye Capital. In Columbus, the two found employment at Berkey’s bakery where they learned the trade, Wilhelm being extremely proficient. One day Mr. Berkey overheard the relatives talking of someday opening their own bakery and became so incensed he fired the two “ungrateful immigrants” on the spot. Realizing there was no better time than the present the men pooled their money and built the first Resch’s Bakery building at 1029 E. Livingston Avenue.
