Our Story

truckLewis Bakeries, Inc. owned and operated by the Lewis family, has been a part of our consumers lives for over 90 years. Born in 1925, Lewis Bakeries was formed by three brothers in a log cabin. The baking tradition has been passed down through the generations in the Lewis Family and we are always looking for new ways to meet our consumers needs.

One of our consumer’s favorite brands, Bunny Bread, was created by R. Jack Lewis, Sr. in 1947. Bunny Bread has been a part of our consumer’s lives and homes for over 50 years! As a family, our goal has always been to produce the best bakery products and respond to our consumer’s needs.

Healthy Life Bread was introduced in 1991 originally as a diet bread. Over the years we’ve gained more and more fans of our healthy breads and have provided more dieters with breads that help to suit their needs for a healthy lifestyle.

Our company is headquartered in Evansville, Indiana with additional bakeries in Fort Wayne, LaPorte and Vincennes. We also have one bakery located in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Lewis Bakeries is one of the few remaining independent bakeries in the Midwest and is the largest wholesale bakery in Indiana.
