The feast of the yeast will take place at their Indianapolis location on 1453 North Tremont Street, as well as the Southport location at 2301 East Southport Road.
Long’s Bakery started in Indianapolis on Saturday, Jan. 29, 1955, with Carl and Mildred Long. The family-owned bakeshop has now had four generations of owners, and it just so happens that every owner is also a baker. The donut factory is filled with siblings, cousins, and spouses.
All hands are on deck because a yeast donut takes three hours to make from start to finish. Long’s takes pride in the diligence and dedication that their more than 90 employees show daily.
“One of our biggest strengths is our employees,” said Crystal Smith, co-owner of Long’s Bakery. “We love and appreciate them so much and try to provide a family-type environment in our workplace.”
