Sanitary Bakery Company - Superior

Sanitary Bakery was located in Superior at 1808 Ogden Avenue. It was owned and operated by Louis Arthur Handlovsky (1897-1974) beginning prior to 1925. Louis was later employed by City Market until his retirement in 1965.

The 1908 news article below indicated that Sam Bear was operating a bakery and was fined for running an unsanitary food factory. The next news article from 1909 shows an ad for an unnamed bakery being run by S Handlovsky, presumably Sam.

The 1925 city directory shows that Sam had died in 1924 and that Louis Handlovsky (his son) was the propriator of Sanitary Bakery Company. The bakery was named sometime between 1909 and 1924 apparently because of Sam's earlier citation for unsanitory conditions. Louis's obituary further below confirms his role as owner and operator of the bakery.
