Tastykake has been in business since 1914, Philip Baur, cofounder of Tasty Baking Company, was born to bake. His father owned the Bauer Brothers Bakery in Pittsburgh, and young Philip eagerly learned the basics of snack making – great taste, good value, and most importantly fresh ingredients. When his Dad sold the Pittsburgh bakery, Baur joined forces with Herbert Morris, an egg salesman, They had a fresh idea: individually wrapped snack cakes, baked and delivered fresh daily. On February 25, 1914 with $50,000 they raised from family members they founded Tasty Baking Company.
In 2011 Tasty Baking merged with Flowers Foods, one of the largest baking companies in the U.S., and it now operates as a wholly owned subsidiary of Flowers Foods. Joining with Flowers has allowed Tastykake to bring Philadelphia’s favorite snack cakes to retail stores around the country, introducing millions of Americans to one of Philadelphia’s best loved treats.
