2019 Sweetest Bakery in Canada Winner: Dooher’s Bakery
For the second year in a row, Dooher’s Bakery of Campbellford, Ont., received the top spot as the 2019 Sweetest Bakery in Canada. The bakery has served the southern Ontario community for almost 70 years and is focused on creating and refining family recipes.
“To be named the Sweetest Bakery in Canada for the second year in a row is an incredible feeling,” said Cory Dooher, owner of Dooher’s Bakery. “As a fourth-generation bakery, we know the support of our local community is key to our success and we cannot thank everyone enough for voting for us again this year. My grandparents started the bakery 70 years ago with just two little wood-burning ovens and today we have grown to a staff of more than 30 – I know they would be incredibly proud of this recognition and where we are today.”
