The giant baking operation that makes Fells Point smell like fresh bread is about to get even bigger.
H&S Bakery recently began construction on a $15 million expansion to its building at 623 S. Caroline St. The project will add 25,000 sq. ft. of space for packaging and shipping. The renovation will also bring in new equipment to help streamline the shipping process. The company also added that the design includes a brick facade and large windows that are designed to blend in with the surrounding historic architecture in Fells Point.
“We’ve made every effort to ensure that the final product not only contains cutting edge industry technology and improvements to ensure the longtime viability of the bakery, but that it is an aesthetic complement to the neighborhood’s existing architecture and rich history,” H&S Bakery’s Bill Paterakis said in a statement.
The Paterakis family is also in the real estate business, most notably Harbor East. But the 50-year-old bakery is still the original connection to the neighborhood, and a thriving business in its own right. The company now has operations in seven states, and distribution to restaurants and grocery stores in 23 states. On division, Northeast Food, has been supplying McDonald’s with rolls since the 1960s.
