A Family with a Dream

In 1925, three determined brothers borrow 300 from their mother's home and rent a cabin to open a bakery in Anna, Illinois. Bread baked by Amos, Armold and Jack Lewis was delivered daily by Ford Model T trucks to individual homes nearby. When resources were scarce, brothers used each day's profits to purchase flour for next day's bread. Over the next 20 years, Brothers established the Lewis family as bakers of choice in the region, and saw achievements such as ownership of bakery buildings, equipment and delivery fleets. In 1947, Lewis Brothers Bakery operated 12 delivery routes, employed 50 people and produced 75 000 loaves of bread weekly. Through community involvement and quality job creation, Lewis family helps shape the history and economic development of communities where their bakery facilities operate.
