Welcome to Bakestone Brothers,
where baking is our passion and providing you with the most delicious baked goods using only the finest ingredients is our commitment. Our baking family, operated by the Pita Bread Factory, is proud to provide you with bread products and baked goods that can be found in your favourite stores and restaurants across the country, many in organic and gluten-free options. We invite you to learn more about who we are and what we do.
The old saying “Mother knows best” sure came true for us! Our story began after Fady Hayek and his family moved to Vancouver from Ottawa, sold their restaurant business and were looking for a new opportunity. His mother teasingly suggested opening a bakery to sell pitas made from an old family recipe, and thank goodness 25-year-old Fady took her advice to heart. Over thirty years later the Pita Bread Factory, under the Bakestone Brothers and 24th Avenue labels, continues to thrive. Today, we are a certified organic bakery that offers a wide array of ethnic bread products and baked goods that are sold throughout Canada and parts of the United States under our own labels and the private labels of many happy retail partners.
While our origins began in 1984 with pita hand-made in a small commercial kitchen, we now proudly offer a wide range of wholesome products from our certified and sophisticated manufacturing operation that still relies on the traditions of our artisanal roots. Even though we have grown in size, our Bakestone Brothers family continues to create the finest baked goods for your family, using timeless techniques and the legacy of the Hayek family’s commitment to fresh, wholesome products made in the spirit of Mama’s kitchen. We take our responsibility to our family and yours seriously, so you can always count on fresh and fabulous food for your table.

This is why our family is committed to providing your family with a reason to gather around the table by baking the highest quality products, created from the finest ingredients to ensure that every bite you take is delicious. Each of our mouth watering recipes is fashioned by dedicated artisans in our BRC Global Standards-certified kitchens, who have sourced the best methods from bread baking cultures around the world. As a certified organic facility, we also provide product options that are gluten-free to ensure that all of our bread-loving customers can enjoy their favourite baked goods regardless of dietary needs.
