The Cold Spring Bakery, originally know as the Home Bakery was started in 1946 by Melvin and Floss Schurman.
The original bakery (Mann's Bakery) was on Red River Avenue where the Red River Inn's kitchen is presently. The present building was built in 1949 with additions in 1968, 1971 and the mall being added in 1985. Additional production space was added in 2000. In 2013, we added our second retail location with the Cold Spring Bakery Connection in Waite Park
