Berwyn mainstay Vesecky’s Bakery closing after more than a century of serving up Eastern European goods

Vesecky’s Bakery, a beloved Berwyn establishment known for its Eastern European baked goods, closed its doors for the last time after more than a century in Business. The bakery announced the closure on Facebook, and its final day of operations was met with long lines of loyal customers lining up to purchase the last of their favorite treats.

The decision to close the bakery came as the owners, Nancy and David Vesecky, reached retirement age. The couple, who took over the family Business in the early ’90s, expressed gratitude for the community’s support over the years and explained that they were looking forward to spending more time with family and enjoying their retirement.

Vesecky’s Bakery has been a staple in the community since it first opened in Chicago in 1905, and has been in the Vesecky family for four generations. The bakery’s offerings expanded over the years to include a variety of Mexican cookies and seasonal pastries to appeal to the area’s growing Latino population.

As the bakery bids farewell, loyal customers remember waiting in long lines for their favorite kolacky, houska, and rye bread, as well as the traditional St. Nicholas cookies and paczki. The Veseckys are considering selling their recipes and creating a cookbook to preserve the bakery’s legacy.

The closure of Vesecky’s Bakery marks the end of an era for the Berwyn community, but the memories and flavors of its delicious, old-fashioned baked goods will live on in the hearts of its customers.
