Our Story

beginning of Ludwicks Sour Cream Donuts

Ludwick’s Bakery started in 1954 when Ed Ludwick began making unique, Dutch donuts from a family recipe that was passed down through generations.  These delicious patty-shaped treats became an instant hit at the local farmers market, so Ed decided to make a large-scale amount and them to local restaurants.  In 1974, the demand for Ed's sour cream donuts was so high that Ludwick’s made a considerable investment and purchased the largest automatic fryer available. 

Ludwick’s Bakery has seen steady growth through the years. In 1980 Ludwick’s moved to a large facility on 3 Mile Road in Grand Rapids, Michigan where they are still located today where all of Ludwick’s baked goods are baked fresh and in house daily. From cookies to donuts and more we hope you enjoy the taste of  Ludwick’s delicious, time-tested creations for many more years to come!
