BackhausSan Mateo , CA
Anne started baking out of his home in San Mateo under a cottage license because he missed the naturally-leavened bread and quality pastries he was used to back home in Germany.He would bake at home and hand-deliver the bread to a small community of folks who were just as in love with artisanal baked goods as he was.
From there Backhaus was born, and the need to scale production moved to a shared kitchen space "Kitchentown" in San Mateo. They began bringing their baked goods to the San Mateo and Burlingame farmers markets.
With popularity growing and the support of the San Mateo community, she and her husband Robert, co-owner of Backhaus, embarked on the grand adventure of opening otheir own bakery in downtown San Mateo, in the heart of the community that has always supported Backhaus.
Backhaus opened its doors in June of 2019. They have had the profound privilege of continue serving San Mateo and the greater Bay Area through all of the ups and downs of 2020.
