The family business was introduced over half a century ago by Grandpa Souren as a small bakery producing fine Middle Eastern and Eastern European delicacies. Grandpa Souren discovered his passion for baking at the age of 17 and began thinking of ways to combine raw ingredients to create unique products that combine baking tradition from multicultural backgrounds including Persian, Armenian, French, Danish, Greek, and Arabic. His love for baking gave him the drive to quit his job as a machine mechanic to focus on his passion. After years of continued success, Granpa Souren’s eldest son Rubic began helping at the family business at age 7. Rubic learned the business from the ground up. From sweeping floors, to mixing large batches of batter by hand, Rubic was committed to learning every aspect of the business, even if it was to be learned the hard way. After immigrating to the United States, Rubic Movsessian, with his father Souren, sparked the community with the introduction of Classic Bakery, Inc. in 1991.
