CHICAGO (PRNewswire) — This year, Bays English Muffins celebrates eighty years of baking the world's best English muffins. Sold in the refrigerated dairy case and not in the bread aisle along with most other English muffins, Bays follows an original family recipe using only the highest quality ingredients, and a baking process passed down through the generations, resulting in a truly discernible quality difference.
Toast to the Holidays
In honor of 80 years, Bays wants loyal consumers to have a chance to win a $300 gift card for the holidays. Through December 16, 2014, consumers can enter the Bays English Muffins "Toast to the Holidays" sweepstakes on Bays' Facebook.
A Family Business – A Rich History
It all began in 1934 when George Bay opened a bakery in Chicago's Loop selling English muffins with a recipe his English grandmother brought to the U.S. in the 1800's. Sold by the dozen in brown paper bags, the muffins were hand-delivered to restaurants, hotels and private clubs. In 1938, Bays was one of the first companies to package muffins in a box with a cellophane window. In the early 70's, Bays products were selected to introduce the Egg McMuffin breakfast sandwich. James Bay Jr. and George Bay are the third generation of the Bay family and actively run the business located in Chicago's west Loop. Available in Original, Sourdough, Honey Wheat and Multi-Grain varieties, Bays English Muffins are sold in the refrigerated section of grocery stores and supermarkets nationwide including Walmart, Target, Publix, Kroger, Safeway and many more.
