The Aunt Millie’s Story
In 1991, the Perfection Biscuit Company developed a flagship brand to represent our passion for baking. We developed a spokeswoman to represent this new line of authentic, “home-style” breads – Aunt Millie. Customers readily identified her as caring, loving, and always baking something wonderful. Aunt Millie became so popular that in 2005, the company was renamed “Aunt Millie’s Bakeries". Today, Aunt Millie is still committed to baking the healthiest, highest quality bread possible. Many of Aunt Millie’s breads are whole grain, and ingredients are held to the strictest standards. From one generation to the next, folks are being raised on Aunt Millie’s baked goods. At Aunt Millie’s, we bake more than bread – we bake memories.
