Wilhelm Gottenbusch, a German immigrant, came to the United States after traveling around the world on an international freighter. In 1963, Wilhelm opened his first bakery on Observatory Avenue in Hyde Park. In a one man shop, with a bakery in the back, he made a name for himself by focusing on one thing- quality. Focusing on the quality of his products, Wilhelm and his sons have expanded and grown over the last 50 years.

Wilhelm brought the traditions of his father and grandfather over from Muenster, Germany. His grandfather, George, started out driving a horse drawn wagon door to door selling his fresh baked goods. Wilhelm’s father, George, attended Germany’s most recognizable baking school and received his “Konditor Meister” status – Master Pastry Chef. His father opened Café Servatii, on Servatii Platz, in the heart of Muenster, Germany. Wilhelm followed in his father’s footsteps by earning his “Master Baker” status and starting his own business in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Wilhelm’s sons Gary and Greg have both apprenticed in Germany earning their journeyman status –Greg in pastry and Gary in baking. Gary continued in his father and grandfather’s footsteps by earning his Master Baker certification in 2001. In turn, the Gottenbusch’s have acquired some of the most talented bakers, decorators and pastry chefs in America. All together they work to uphold the values set forth by Wilhelm Gottenbusch 50 years ago.
