In 1949, the 0 & H Danish Bakery was founded by Christian Olesen in Racine, Wisconsin. Home to one of the largest Danish populations in the United States and now known for the danish kringle.
One of thousands who immigrated here from Denmark, Chris brought with him the "Old World" Danish pride and commitment to quality that have become 0 & H Danish Bakery hallmarks. Loved by those who long for wonderful baked goods reminiscent of old Denmark, 0&H Danish Bakery grew and they became masters of the Danish kringle.
Over the years, a strong sense of family commitment evolved, as the extended family devoted their time and energy to produce the finest, authentic Danish Bakery in the country. The wonderful aroma of fresh-baked breads, kringle, cinnamon rolls, pies, cakes, cookies, and a host of other delicious bakery fill the air throughout the neighborhood.
Now, nearly fifty years after its founding, a fourth generation of Olesens is entering the family business. That's great news for all who have come to enjoy their wonderful creations, especially 0 & H Danish Kringle!
