Home of "The Original" Atlantic City Bread
Formica Brothers Bakery legacy began in 1919 when Francesco Formica opened the bakery with his wife Rosa bringing his legendary hand-crafted breads to Atlantic City from Italy. In 1928 Francesco moved the bakery to its current location (2310 Arctic Avenue), building a state of the art brick oven that the family kept burning continuously until 1988. In 1987 Frank D. Formica (grandson) purchased the business from his uncles and father. In May 2019 Pat McKenna took over the 100 years old bakery and continues to make the hand-crafted Italian bread with the same exact recipe that Frank's grandfather used. The secret is in the water that comes from below the New Jersey Pinelands. This gives Formica's Bakery bread its unique flavor and body. Now operating as Formica's Bakery.
