Our story

This is a third generation, family-owned bakery.

The beginning


Frank’s Bake Shop & Custom Catering, in Bangor, Maine, traces its roots back to 1945 when Frank Soucy, Sr. and two of his sons, Joseph and Frank Jr., opened a retail bakery at 148 Hancock Street on October 17th. They quickly outgrew their original location and moved to their present site at 199 State Street just two years later on November 7, 1947.



Today it is owned and operated by Joseph’s children who are continuing on the tradition of making specialty bake goods from scratch, as well as homemade meals, and custom catering for any occasion using the highest quality ingredients available. Our motto is “Where Good Means the Best”.
