Morabito Baking Company, Inc. is a fourth-generation business, based in Norristown, PA, that has been in continuous operation since 1932.
Michael Angelo Morabito, Sr. arrived in the U.S. from Messina, Sicily in 1914 at the age of 20 and got a job at a bakery. Being entrepreneurial, in 1932 he opened his own bakery in a converted house in Norristown, baking his family's traditional recipes. He eventually had 13 children, and the oldest boys would make bread deliveries to customers on their way to school.
His 7th child, Michael Angelo, Jr., became president of the company in 1955 after serving his country as a Navy pilot then getting his degree from the University of Miami. Michael Jr.'s oldest son, Michael Angelo III, completed his B.S. and his M.B.A. at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and was hired immediately by Entenmann's Bakery to run its apple division. In 1984, Michael returned to help run the family business as Plant Manager and is now President/Owner of the company. Joanna Morabito (Villanova University; the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania) is Vice President and serves as a Trustee on the Pension Board of the Teamsters. Their oldest son, Michael Angelo IV, (B.S. Rensselaer; J.D./M.B.A. Villanova University) is a Director and General Counsel of the company.
Many things have changed over the years since the company began, but our mission is the same: All of our bread is baked fresh daily, with each product's formulations tailored specifically to our customers' requirements. We take great pride in our unsurpassed quality products and great customer service.
