Beach Lake Bakery is family-owned and operated. In the late 1990s, co-founders and owners Brian and Lisa Woods started producing artisan breads out of the garage of their home in Beach Lake, PA. Their first customers were friends, at whose houses they would drop off a few loaves, and a local fish market. With the help of their son Ian, who assisted with production and deliveries, and their daughter Jamie, whose idea it was to build and run the bakery’s small retail store, the Woodses discovered a high demand for their European-style breads and traditional American pies and cookies. They sold the business in 2007, and it moved to Honesdale, PA. It was a twist of fate, when the bakery, formerly known as Beach Lake Bread, was forced to close its doors in August, 2011, and Brian and Lisa resumed ownership. They reopened it in March, 2012, as Beach Lake Bakery, at its original location in Beach Lake.
