About Miller's Bakery
100 Years of Baking
Our Grandfather and founder, Otto Hänel Müller was born in New York City on October 5, 1890. Orphaned as a young boy, Otto was returned to Germany to be raised by his Uncle Maximilian in the small town of Kemberg in the Sachsen-Anhalt region of Germany. Maximilian and his brother Heinrich were Master Bakers who owned a popular Bakery in the nearby city of Halle an der Saale.
Otto was put to work in the family bakery by his Uncles at a young age, where he learned many of the ancient recipes we still use today, particularly during the holiday seasons. We are particularly proud of our Dresden Stollen, Strudels and Christmas butter cookies. At the age of eighteen, Otto returned to New York City where he worked as a baker before serving in the American Army and rising to the rank of Sergeant during the First World War.
