What started in 1911 as the Beede Baking Company in Pipestone, Minnesota has grown into the Pan-O-Gold Baking Company we know today. Sold from the Beede family to the Alton family in the 1940s, we became Pan-O-Gold Baking Company — the bakers of “little pans of gold."
Throughout the years, we’ve had much growth through expansion and bakery acquisitions, including Lakeland Bakery in St. Cloud, Minnesota, which is now home to our company headquarters.
Today, Pan-O-Gold is still independent and family owned with Howard (Robin) Alton III at the helm. With three state-of-the art baking facilities, we’re one of the largest fresh bread suppliers in the Midwest.
