Dewey's Bakery, Inc.


Salem Baking Co in Winston-Salem, NC has been operating continuously since 1930 as Dewey's Bakery. In 1992, we created Salem Baking Company to focus on traditional baked products for national distribution. We named our new company after the Moravian settlement of Salem located in our community, which was established in 1766, and was the source of the recipe for our Moravian Cookies. We have since introduced an array of new products for both Salem Baking labels and Private label brands.
