Experience the Difference

For more than 115 years, the Byrnes & Kiefer Company (B&K) has manufactured superior-quality baking supplies and baked goods to drive value for bakeries, grocers and foodservice operators throughout the region.

Founded in 1902 in Pittsburgh’s famed Strip District, Byrnes & Kiefer started modestly by supplying molasses, baking powder, flour and other baking products to customers in Pittsburgh and neighbouring areas. Over the years, the company has expanded to produce an array of baked goods under the Byrnes & Kiefer and Charles Specialties brands, as well as speciality recipes created for retail, foodservice and convenience store customers.

The Brynes & Kiefer product line now comprises nearly 300 unique items, offered frozen ready-to-bake or in a thaw-and-sell format. Each product is crafted using the highest quality ingredients, featuring traditional preparation methods and finished with a hand-made touch that distinguishes B&K products from all others in the marketplace.

To this day, B&K remains a family-owned company dedicated to the business principles of our founder, E.C. Byrnes, and guided by the founder’s grandson, E.G. Byrnes Jr.
