How It All Began

Established in 1947.

Anthony Allegretti Sr. started his own bakery on Kedzie Avenue in Chicago in 1947. It was a small store front and the family lived above in a small two bedroom apartment. As the bakery grew and the family got larger, Anthony decided to move both to Norridge. The original location on Lawrence Avenue has been home to Allegretti's Bakery ever since!
