It’s true! The Rix Family has owned and operated Olde Colony Bakery since 1990. Peter and Sheila Rix built the family business and while Peter has since retired, you can still find Sheila out front greeting customers and answering phone calls. She also does all the administrative work! Son Phil Rix and son-in-law Jim stay extremely busy in the kitchen baking, pulling racks, and bagging up all those cookies! And the rest of the family help out when they can from labeling bags to stopping by to help out in the holidays. The newest face in the family business is daughter-in-law Lindsey. She’s been tasked as the technical adviser. Her first priority was to update our website and online store for our customers. Stop by any day of the week and we’d be glad for you to meet us and try our baked goods!
