QUEST FOR PIE-FECTION
Traveling back to 1996, Larry and Narda Pantaleo began selling specialty pies and cakes at their Fresh Food Mart deli in the small country town of Pinjarra, WA. What began as a humble addition to their shop, quickly grew into a spectacularly successful bakery.
With their Italian roots and great passion for food, and family—word of their delicious offerings spread like wildfire, with West Aussies visiting from far and wide to taste a quality baked pie and iconic sugary delight. To meet growing demand, they expanded the bakery to an independent brick and mortar store, and here is where Pinjarra Bakery & Patisserie was born.
Feature premium local WA produce, champion meticulous attention to quality, provide exceptional value, and an unbeatable customer experience. Those early years were formidable in laying solid foundations placing and an enormous amount of importance on the craft of baking, and business.
A quiet confidence spurred the husband and wife duo to start entering regional competitions—and the results…triumphant! A local success story that undeniably solidified Pinjarra Bakery as a “must visit” destination on the map.
With three adult kids on board, the Pantaleo family have been immersed in the world of pies for twenty five years. The next generation are paving the way for a new wave of pie enthusiasts.
