Locally or Family-Owned Business Notes
Bloedow Bakery has been passed down through family members throughout the years. Ernest and Mary Bloedow started the business in 1924. By 1941, Ernest and Mary's daughter, Mildred, and her husband, Julies Gernes, purchased the bakery. In 1984, Mildred and Julius' son, Ernie, and his wife, Darlene, took over the Bloedow tradition. On January 1, 2005, the bakery was sold to Hugh and Mary Polus. A baker at Bloedow Bakery since the age of 15, Hugh was mentored by Ernie and Darlene for 20 years to continue the Bloedow tradition.
