Today, the story of LaSalle Bakery continues to be written. If these walls could talk. They would tell of all the wonderful souls who have switched on the lights in the still-dark hours of the morning to begin mixing the dough. All the emergencies and the dropped pies! All the cupcakes we’ve handed to the children and grandchildren of customers who came to LaSalle when they were small. The years of toil, made sweeter by loyalty, camaraderie and friendships. The tough decisions, the milestones and the faith to keep going. And most of all, the proof that dreams can come true, even for a pan boy and his wife.
