Omar Bakery, once the largest 'door to door' bakery in the country, larger then wonder bread.
Headquarters in Rye, New York.
The demise was when father passed away, company passed down to family, company was sold piece meal.
Continental baking tried to buy them, but sale was nixed by government (anti-trust, same deal as ATT buying T-mobile). Investor bought them, ran them right into ground. Also the day of housewife being home buying bread and bakery from a route delivery, went by way of milk man. They were quite the operation. My father worked for them in management, ran many facilities through out midwest. We were moved almost every year. I went to 8 different schools before we settled in Milwaukee, their last profitable plant in the 60's.
Proud past, sad ending.
