Toledo Baker’s Business On The Rise

February 24, 2011 Local News 2 Comments

Glen Schweizer

Glen Schweizer is now well-known in Toledo as “The Bread Guy” who dispenses fresh loaves and rolls from his mobile bakery at Business 20 and Bay Road. His Heart and Hands Bakery is now branching out, including weekly set-ups in three coastal towns and multiple retail locations. It is hard to find anyone leaving “the best-smelling bus in Lincoln County” without a smiling face; Schweizer hopes those smiles will now be found from Toledo to Waldport. He has been experimenting at the Emerald Coast Realty office in Seal Rock Saturdays, and will now be at Waldport’s Bayview Market and Deli Wednesdays and Fridays. His Toledo dates will change to Thursday and Sunday. Schweizer is grateful to the folks in Toledo who got him started. “I’m very excited about how things are expanding,” he said. “I hope the new schedule won’t inconvenience anyone. But this will enable us to keep baking here for a long time to come,” Schweizer said.

He points out that the mobile nature of his business is the key to its success. “I could never have developed this level of business with a fixed location.” He expressed gratitude for his fellow Toledo residents who helped him get underway. But local bread fans won’t have to look far to find his product. On days when he is not baking on-site, Schweizer will have retail racks filled at Mike’s Mercantile in Toledo. His bread will also be sold at Baymart Deli in Waldport, the Seal Rock Cafe, and at Northwest Kitchens in Newport’s Bayfront. Northwest Kitchens owner Kirk Mosman of Toledo said “What drew us was that we really enjoyed his product. We support local business whenever possible.” The store also carries sauce from Stu Miller’s Pig Feathers BBQ of Toledo and Old River Coffee of Siletz.
