Palermo Bakery was first started by Giovanna and Gennaro Bruno, better known as Joanne and Jerry. They offered a full assortment of traditional baked goods and Italian desserts in their small retail shop in Ridgefield Park, NJ.
Joanne managed the store while Jerry, an experienced baker since the age of fourteen, took the title of head baker and cake decorator.
Shortly after opening, they began a small wholesale operation where they delivered cakes and pastries to local restaurants, media events, and catering facilities. This aspect of the business became regional and ultimately national.
