March 12, 2012 - PRLog -- When Chris and Kathy Fabos bought their bakery 30 years ago, Kathy was 21 and Chris was 23. Kathy recalls, "People either told us we were too young or just crazy to make such a purchase. I had recently graduated and had my first job with a steady paycheck. We had been living off a small amount of money so we felt there was no real risk involved."

Chris remembers the very first day.  When we took over the store we had three employees and orders waiting to be filled for pick up. During those first years we were just happy to have money in the register at the end of each day. Today, we have a staff of sixteen."

Several of their employees have been with the company for many, many years.  But Linda, who is now one of the cake icing staff, was there on that first morning working as a sales girl.

Kathy says the business has become like a big extended family, "In addition to Linda, other long term staff include Henry, our baker, who has been t over 15 years. Tammy, one of our decorators has been with us for 20 of those years and Oscar our head decorator for 15 years."

When Ontario Bakery first started there were thirteen bakeries in the area. One by one the competition of less expensive products in grocery or club stores caused many of the other bakeries to close their doors.  Chris says, "As we look back, we realize we survived those changes and a couple of major recessions.  We believe the secret to our success is offering tasty and beautiful cakes at an affordable price.

"Our latest challenge has been the perception left by the cake decoration shows on television.  These shows have raised customers desires for elaborate decorations but have misled the public to believe that these fancy cakes fit there budget.  As with any product requiring custom art, the more time it takes to produce, the more expensive it gets."

Over the last 30 years the bakery estimates that we have made 700,000 birthday, anniversary, holiday, and every other kind of cake.  Add to that another 39,000 tiered cakes for weddings and other occasions."

The Fabos clan has taken part in the business.  "ll three of our children were born and raised during the past 30 years and all three have worked for us during this time," notes Kathy.  "Our oldest son, Matt continues to work as our fondant decorator and pastry chef. Our youngest son, Johnny, works as one of our delivery personnel. Our daughter Heather was married just last fall and is now working for the Hilton.  Some of you remember Heather as one of our sales representatives helping brides and others over the past several years."

The entire family has decided to thank all of our customers who have made this 30 year anniversary possible.  And special thanks go to all of the employees both past and present who have worked to make Ontario Bakery what it is today.  There method to thank the community is a huge party on March 31 with free cake, and absolutely amazing deals throughout the month of March.
