Empire Bakery Commissary, LLC


Empire Bakery was founded in 1997 in Roanoke, Virginia as a commissary kitchen producing fresh, wholesome products for a leading retailer.  Empire Bakery grew to specialize in creating custom, hand decorated cakes and desserts.  In 2010, Empire Bakery moved to Rocky Mount, Virginia to support our customers’ growth and national distribution requirements. 

Today, Empire Bakery employs more than 150 Associates and we expect to add another 75 Associates upon the completion of our expansion project in late 2019.  We are thrilled to provide innovation in the bakery industry and we look forward to supporting our customers and their consumers for years to come!


From our family to yours.  We love to share our passion for food and fun, as seen by Mary Marek – mother to our founder Len Marek - and her remarkable holiday dessert table.
