Company History

Sheila opened the first House of Bread in San Luis Obispo, California in 1996. She brought her beloved Montana wheat fields to her California bakery in the form of high-protein wheat berries, which are ground into flour daily at each House of Bread location. While many consumers may believe that all flour is created equal, don't be fooled. Just as fresh ground coffee tastes better, so does freshly milled flour.

Early in 1998, with the bakery flourishing, Sheila was beginning to be inundated with requests for franchises. Her research while at Harvard Business School showed that there were no known national bread companies, other than Wonderbread. Sheila saw this as an opportunity to bring House of Bread to new markets, and began an expansion plan that would eventually put House of Bread products in the breadboxes of all Americans.
