Hough Bakery Recipes

Hough Bakery was founded in May, 1903 by Lionel Pile of Cleveland Heights, Ohio. The first Hough home bakery was on Hough Avenue and by 1930 was operated by Pile, his son Robby, and four employees. In 1952, the name was changed to Hough Bakeries, a nd by 1973 Hough had annual sales of $12 million with 1,000 employees. It was an institution in Cleveland and its environs. However, by 1992 the company had fallen on hard times, probably due to having failed to modernize its operations, and was liquidated in bankruptcy court. Kraft/General Foods now owns the company name and its recipes.

In the Cleveland Plain Dealer newspaper on July 2, 2003, there was an article in the Food Section highlighting the "old" head baker from Hough Bakeries! His name is Archie Garner and he has his own bakery now where he is using the old Hough Bakery recipes. Archie's Bakery is at 14906 Lakeshore Boulevard, Cleveland, Ohio, phone: 216-481-4188.
