About Us

Open since 1921, Termini Brothers represents a step into the past, where technology and automation take a back seat to artistry and old world craftsmanship. Termini Brothers Bakery has been handed down from father to son for three generations. The legacy of hard work, commitment to product quality and exceptional customer service continues to be the foundation of our business. In Philadelphia and across the United States, a Termini Brothers dessert has become a distinctive way to embrace family, friends and colleagues. Whether delivered for a holiday dinner, board meeting, as a way to say "Congratulations!" or to express sympathy, the Termini dedication to quality is evident in every bite. Today, with four retail locations and our online storefront, everyone has the opportunity to take a step into the past and savor the sweetness of a bygone era.

Our Story

Two brothers. One Suitcase. One simple dream.

Giuseppe and Gaetano set out to fulfill the dream of opening a bakery in their new country.



Initially working at Stetson Hat Company, the Termini Brothers save enough money to open a humble kitchen and storefront. Termini Brothers Bakery was born.

Within 2 years, Termini Brothers became the go-to spot for wedding cakes - allowing the brothers to purchase their first delivery truck.



Giuseppe marries Mariangela Termini, the first Matriarch of the Termini Family.

7 years after arriving in the United States, Giuseppe becomes an American citizen.



17 years after opening their small storefront, the brothers saved enough money to move across the street to a larger location - where Termini Brothers Bakery currently stands today. Vincent Termini Sr. is born in that same year.

As WWII unfolded, the demand for Termini Brothers fruit cakes being shipped overseas to the frontline is insatiable, adding further to the legacy and reputation of the bakery. Young Vincent is growing fast and already being taught the lesson of having a strong work ethic.



The brothers purchase the properties on Franklin Street behind the bakery to create a bigger work shop. Vincent Sr. enters the business as a baker.

The Philadelphia culinary landscape starts to take form as some of the most established reputable businesses begin to grow.

Vincent Sr. expands Termini Brothers by opening two satellite locations in the Reading Terminal Market, and 24th and Oregon Ave.



The 8th Street store goes through a revitalization. Joseph and Vincent Sr. continue to work side by side every day, and the shop team grows to accommodate the growth in business from the new locations. Joey and Vinny enter the business as weekend apprentices.
