Johnson Bros. Bakery Supply will celebrate 25 years in business in 2019 and is marking the occasion with special offers, giveaways, events, and stories from long-time vendors, customers, and employees. “We were happy to start small,” says Kevin Johnson, chief executive officer.
Kevin and Blain Johnson started the company in a small warehouse but soon signed on grocery chains. Those new customers led them to become a top baking supply company in Texas and a leading supplier to bakeries in Texas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas.
Today, Johnson Bros. occupies more than 100,000 square feet from its headquarters in northeast San Antonio. It also has distribution facilities in Dallas and Houston and employs more than 80 people across the region.
Today, the company includes a retail cake decorating division called Over the Top Cake Supplies and a craft brewery supplier called Brewery Direct. JBBS also supports Project Angel Fares, a nonprofit started by Kevin to provide all expense paid trips to San Antonio for families with a special needs child to experience Morgan’s Wonderland.
