Thanksgiving is a time of reflection spent with family and friends. It is a time to celebrate the blessings we have been given and be appreciative of those around us.

To all of our staff:

We are lucky to be surrounded by such hardworking and passionate individuals. Whether reflected in the quality of our product, or the quality of our service, day in and day out, you are Utica Bread. We are even greater than the sum of our parts, all success we find as a team is a reflection of your individual contributions. Thank You.

To all of our customers:

Without you, there would be no Utica Bread. You have been remarkably kind to us. Growing a business from scratch is not a process free of growing pains. As we have developed you have been patient and supportive. Your feedback is invaluable and we strive to exceed your expectations. Every day we see both new faces and regular customers, a sign that you’re sharing our product and you’re coming back to grow alongside us. Thank You all for your support. We’re working hard to make great bread a big part of a great city.

Please know that we express our gratitude to you all and hope to let it reflect in our work ethic and product quality throughout the year.
