The Bundy Baking Museum in Urbana, Ohio, recently became the new home for the American Society of Baking’s Baking Hall of Fame.
The Baking Hall of Fame originated in 2006 to recognize and honor individuals for their amazing achievements in organizational growth and development, innovation in equipment design and ingredient technology, and service relating to the American baking industry. Over the years, it has grown extensively and now includes 87 individuals, with five more scheduled to be inducted during a ceremony in February.
“We would like to thank Bundy Baking Solutions and the Bundy Family for agreeing to house the Baking Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame Evaluation Committee greatly appreciates your commitment to ASB, the Hall of Fame, and the entire wholesale baking industry,” notes Kent Van Amburg, executive director of the American Society of Baking.
“We are deeply honored to be the new home for the Baking Hall of Fame,” states Gilbert Bundy, CEO of Bundy Baking Solutions. “The hall of fame is very near and dear to our hearts and is a spectacular way to honor those who have poured their heart and soul into our industry.”
The Bundy Baking Museum is located at the Bundy Baking Solutions headquarters in Urbana, Ohio. Included in the museum display are three floors of vintage signage, vehicles, advertising, equipment, and most recently added, the Baking Hall of Fame. It is a result of Bundy Baking Solutions’ founder and Baking Hall of Fame inductee, Russ Bundy’s, 40-plus year passion to collect and preserve the rich history of the baking industry. The museum is open to baking industry professionals by appointment.
Founded in 1924, the American Society of Baking consists of professionals working together to provide educational, networking, and professional development opportunities to members of the baking industry.
