Fox’s Bakery & Deli

This scratch bakery is celebrating 40 years in Barrie

For the past 45 years, Fox’s Bakery & Deli has been a community staple and the city’s go-to spot for baked goods. Here’s their story …

A Barrie Staple

Ross and Erma Fox paved the way for their sons Steve and Craig to continue scratch baking in Barrie.

Fox’s tale began on February 8, 1978 when Ross and Erma began the Buns Master Bakery franchise in Barrie. It was the third franchise location in Canada and the second in Ontario.

The shop quickly became a success story. “We consistently ranked among the best-producing bakeries in the chain, seeing tremendous growth back in the 80s,” said Steve Fox.

New Roots

In December of 1999, Steve purchased the bakery. Then, in 2007, he broke away from the Buns Master franchise and began Fox’s Bakery & Delicatessen. The location now employs 32 staff and bakes 99 percent of what they sell in-house.

“Nothing pre-made, or out-of-a-box here,” says Craig. “We are one of the few scratch bakeries around.”
