FAIRYWOOD (KDKA) — It has been a part of Pittsburgh for more than a century.

Now, Cellone’s Bread Company is expanding.

In lieu of a ribbon-cutting, a bread-cutting ceremony was held at their new bakery Thursday morning.

The company is a shining example of a family-run business. Cellone’s was established in 1911. The company has done its part to support the community over the years.

“There were times when we called for donations for community festivals, and we’d call every business there was. Cellone’s, without hesitation, always donated,” says Pittsburgh City Councilwoman Theresa Kail-Smith.

Three generations of Cellones currently work at the company. With the opening of their new bakery, Thursday was officially declared Cellone Bakery Day.

Mayor Bill Peduto says the bakery was a big part of his childhood. “I grew up eating Cellone’s bread. It was always a part of our family,” says Mayor Peduto.
