The Cabibbo baking tradition began with Giovanni "Beduzzi" Lo Presti who immigrated from Ragusa, Sicily in 1911. He went into business in Cliffside Park, NJ baking fresh breads and Holiday Specialties and delivering them in his Model T Ford panel truck. His daughter Rose joined him in the business until her marriage to Salvatore Cabibbo in February, 1929.
After Beduzzi's death Sal and Rose took over the business and moved it to Union City, NJ where it expanded to include the sale of Italian provisions and groceries. They operated Cabibbo's Bakery in this location for 43 years.
When Sal and Rose retired the business became dormant but the baking continued using the same wonderful recipes to the delight of family and friends. In 2001 Cabibbo's Bakery has been re-established in the hands of Sal and Rose's son Joe and his wife Ruby. With the encouragement of their family, this 90-year-old tradition of fine baking is once again available to the public through this website and select specialty retail outlets, including the Dane County Farmer's Market.
The traditional Italian baking of Cabibbo's Bakery was recently featured in an article in the Wisconsin State Journal.
