Dave’s Killer Bread:
The history of Dave's Killer Bread began in 2005, when co-founder Dave Dahl was welcomed back to the family bakery by his older brother Glenn after serving 15 years in prison. Dave seized the opportunity and worked tirelessly to develop a killer new recipe for organic and Non-GMO bread, which was debuted at the Portland Farmers Market in 2005. Dave’s Killer Bread was an instant hit.
What began as one man’s journey has turned into so much more. Today, Dave’s Killer Bread is the #1 organic bread in America, with distribution in all 50 states as well as Canada. Additionally, approximately 1 in 3 of the more than 300 employee-partners at the company’s Milwaukie, Oregon bakery has a criminal background. These individuals demonstrate the commitment, the passion and the power to learn and grow, becoming some of the company’s most valued and trusted workers, filling positions from entry level jobs to management positions responsible for hundreds of employees and critical bakery operations
