Company Overview:

Ellison Bakery Inc was established in 1945 in a family garage, and in 1948 moved from the Ellisville truck stop on US 24 in Fort Wayne to its first new foundation. It first produced Swanson Homemade Cookies, also known as Archway Cookies, throughout Indiana, Kentucky, and Wisconsin. In 1965, Ellison Bakery moved to its current facility on Ferguson Road, across from the Fort Wayne International Airport, where we continue to produce quality cookies, crunch toppings, and inclusion items for the ice cream industry.

Company Mission:

Ellison Bakery credits ongoing growth to the commitment of its employees and excellence in all phases of the operation. With humble family beginnings, Ellison Bakery continues today to be run and owned by family. It is Ellison Bakery’s belief that the only way to make the very best cookies is to hire the very best employees. It is their strategy to do just that and to let the employees apply the very best baking processes to the very best ingredients. Since only the best can make the best, Ellison Bakery prides itself on its most important asset, the employees.
