About Us

Hudson Bread is more than a bakery.
 Combining centuries-old traditions with the passion of skilled craftsmen is what we are all about.

The notion of a traditional artisan bakery is a deeply rooted dream of Mariusz Kolodziej. Having been exposed to the fine art of bread making in his father’s bakery in Poland, Kolodziej acquired the passion for and understanding of this craftsmanship at a very young age. His enthusiasm for the trade escalated each year, as did the desire to start a bakery of his own. With a bit of luck and plenty of hard work, Kolodziej was able to realize his dream in 1994 on the shore of the Hudson River in New York City. With this move, the Hudson Bread Company had been set into motion.

It did not take long for Hudson Bread to gain momentum. The bakery quickly gained respect and praises for its distinctive products as well as reliable service. With time it became the sole supplier of bread to many upscale restaurants and hotels in New York City. Vowing to never sacrifice quality for quantity, Kolodziej made sure that the products remained true to the artisan ways that inspired him to enter the business in the first place. He is proud to admit that fulfilling this promise is the secret to his continuing success.

To accommodate the growing demand without sacrificing the quality of its products, Hudson Bread relocated its headquarters to North Bergen, New Jersey in 2003. Further success led to the opening of another location, this time in in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, allowing Hudson Bread to penetrate the Philadelphia region as well. It does not matter where Hudson Bread ventures; it is loved and praised by all.
