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, sometimes themselves, cakes and pastries to local restaurants and catering facilities.
Now over 25 years later, Palermo Bakery has grown into a thriving retail/wholesale operation, with a specialty in custom cake design.
We pride ourselves on both the unique experience we provide customers looking for custom cakes and our full assortment of traditional desserts that we offer.
We currently serve New Jersey, New York City, Eastern Pennsylvania, & Western Connecticut. We also do long distance deliveries upon special request. Our retail stores are located in Ridgefield Park, Little Ferry, Union City, Wyckoff, and Fair Lawn, NJ.
