Group of Friends Create First Black-Owned Bread Company ‘The Black Bread Company’ in Chicago

The idea grew out of frustration directly related to the killing of George Floyd by a Minneapolis Police Officer last May.

They were best friends in high school, they are godparents to each other’s children, and now they are co-founders of The Black Bread Company, which is said to be the first-ever Black-owned bread company in the country.

“It was just something we felt we had to do,” said Black Bread Company co-founder Jamel Lewis.
