A History of Baking Excellence
Marvin Moos Guy Moos
Marvin Moos grew up in New Salem, North Dakota. He served as a baker in the Navy during World War II. After his military service, Marvin studied baking at Dunwoody’s Institute in Minneapolis.
He worked for other bakeries for several years, and then opened the first Baker Boy Bake Shop in Hebron, North Dakota, in 1955. In 1957, he and his family relocated the business to Dickinson, North Dakota. The bake shop prospered, and branched into other related businesses: a Diner in a local shopping mall, a Pizza House and Café, and, in 1975, a donut specialty shop, named “The Donut Hole
Recognizing a need for a regional provider of quality dough products to serve the baking industry, the Moos family sold their other enterprises (except The Donut Hole) in 1978. Funds from the sale were used to build a 3,000-square-foot facility to manufacture frozen dough products.
The facility was completed in April 1979. During its first year, production averaged 40 cases per week. Demand for the products grew quickly, and with the help of foodservice distributors, products were soon being sold to expanding markets.
Today, a new expanded 135,000 square-foot complex houses a technologically sophisticated production facility capable of producing over 75,000 cases of product each week.
Baker Boy Founder, Marvin Moos, passed away in November 2004. Although he is greatly missed, his entrepreneurial spirit lives on. His son, Guy Moos
(President) continues to lead Baker Boy to a successful future, along with Baker Boy’s key leadership team.
Baker Boy continues to invest in the company by adding state-of-the-art equipment, offering educational opportunities for employees, serving customers with quality products, great service, innovative solutions, great value, and providing leadership and support to worthwhile projects in our community.
Baker Boy has an obligation to build a lasting organization that will endure the test of time, and serve our Baker Boy family, customers, and community for generations to come.
Baker Boy attributes its success over the years to the foresight of its founder: Marvin Moos, the hard-working team of dedicated employees and a supportive community that Baker Boy is proud to call home.
Baker Boy’s mission is to be the preferred brand for premium, on-trend bakery goods for foodservice, bakery, C-store and food manufacturing customers. Providing responsive, personal service and support, we will consistently meet and exceed the needs of an ever-evolving marketplace.
