By serendipity, I recently visited Franz Bakery, located at NE 12th & Fladers St in Portland. It’s over a hundred year old business also known as United States Bakery.
- Franz is credited with inventing the hamburger bun in it’s current form (not the hamburger though)
- Franz holds the Guinness World Record of creating the largest hot dog bun at 104 ft
- (best part) – visit their store for some exceptionally good deals – fresh product at more than 50% discount (items perfectly good but have packaging, marking errors)
They offer regular tours as well, which can be scheduled at their website.
