In 1881, Edward Katzinger immigrated from Austria to New York City as an 18 year-old. He started off as a “tinner” in a factory before moving out to begin his own venture, eventually landing in Chicago where he focused on baking tin production for the commercial baking industry.
Before the turn of the 20th century, baking pans were typically produced at various sizes, made-to-order for clients, with no standardized sizing or specifications. But with the help of Katzinger’s son, Arthur, the business was pumping out up to 70,000 pans a day, all stock sized, ready to hit the mass market.
It was this revolutionary shift that spearheaded the amazing growth of the Katzinger business, and while acquiring and creating various brands over the 20th century, in 1972, Baker’s Secret® would be born.
