As times changed, business continued to flourish, but not ‘across the shelves’. The second generation noted a decline in pastry sales yet fresh bread sales increased. They realized that in order to ensure quality and demand of one line another would have to go. Development for the future became and continues to be the cultivation of the company’s number one best seller; fresh bread products. During the late 1970’s, a bigger facility became essential for the overall growth and success of the company. In an effort to expand, the company transitioned from its original location in Everett and found a new home at a state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in Malden. Piantedosi Baking Company, Inc. soon became a household family name and a New England staple throughout the restaurant industry. It was in this era that the third generation of Piantedosis assumed control of the business, perpetuating the dreams and standards of their fathers.
