Cake Box Bakery set to serve last slice

Summerland bakery to close after 66 years, making way for European-style True Grain Bread.

The Cake Box Bakery in Summerland will come to a close early next month, but a new bakery will operate from the same location.

“After almost 66 years, the Cake Box Bakery era draws to a close,” said Markus Hunziker, owner of the bakery.

“Easter Saturday will be our last day. We wish to thank everyone for their patronage and encourage you to give the new owners a warm welcome.”

Cake Box Bakery has operated since 1946 when Jerry Hallquist opened its doors. Silvia Morf, Tony Willies and Hunziker took over the bakery in 1999, and Hunziker has been the sole owner since 2004.

True Grain Bread, based in Cowichan Bay, will bring its European style to the Summerland sister store in spring.

“We are very excited to have the opportunity to build on the rich legacy of Cake Box Bakery in providing freshly baked bread and other baked goods on Main Street,” said Bruce Stewart, president of True Grain Bread. “We are excited to be joining a community that is passionate about protecting and nurturing its rich agricultural roots.”
