Since February, online votes have been cast to name the next Sweetest Bakery in America. The second annual nationwide contest from Dawn Foods wrapped up voting at the end of the day on Tuesday, July 31, and now a winner has been announced.
For the second straight year, Lochel’s Bakery in Hatboro, Pennsylvania has won the Sweetest Bakery in America contest. The bakery will receive publicity support, a celebration party, and an innovation session to create even more delicious treats for their community.
The second place winner was Clayton Bakery & Café in Clayton, North Carolina, and the third place winner was Sweet Crunch Bakeshop in Hyde Park, Vermont. A winner selected from each state in the country will also receive support from Dawn Foods to help promote their bakeries in their communities.
In a post on Facebook, Lochel’s Bakery thanked voters for their support in helping the bakery win the grand prize:
