WHY Arnold®?


Back in 1940, you couldn’t find the premium, wholesome bread that we love today. That is, until Dean and Betty Arnold came along and changed that. They believed in a better loaf of bread. When Dean was let go from his job at a large baking plant, he and his wife took the severance pay and started their own bakery out of a tiny house in Stamford, CT. By starting small, they were able to give each brick-oven-baked loaf the attention it deserved. Something was special about Arnold® bread, made with premium ingredients like unbleached spring wheat flour, honey, butter, and eggs. Because it was so superior to other breads on the market, the Arnolds secured a business loan based on its taste alone. Arnold® Bread quickly became a household name up and down the East Coast, but they never lost sight of what was most important: making great bread for great people. Today, though Dean and Betty no longer make it themselves, Arnold® is still committed to bringing you awesomely delicious and nutritious bread you can believe in— so you can live your life and love your loaf.

Every slice of Arnold® Bread is made with high-quality ingredients, just the way Dean and Betty wanted it. We use no high fructose corn syrup and no artificial colors or flavors, and many varieties are made with whole grains. (Whole grains are any grain that includes 100% of the original kernel. Yup, the whooole thing.) That’s how we bring you a more nutritious and delicious loaf that’s hearty but soft—bread that we’re proud to bake, and that you’re proud to buy. If you are what you eat, then you’re pretty awesome. And now we have even more to take pride in: our company, Bimbo Bakeries USA, has been named 2018 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Bread and the environment are two things Bimbo Bakeries USA is most passionate about, so it’s a huge honor to be recognized as a leader in energy management within the baking industry.
