Ernest Nickles Inducted into Baking Hall of Fame
A.S.B names three to Baking Hall of Fame
The members of the 2013 class include three legends who will be long remembered for their contributions to the baking industry.
The American Society of Baking has named Ernest Nickles as one of its 2013 inductees to the Baking Hall of Fame.
According to the A.S.B. , Mr. Nickles was a humble, dedicated person who lived and breathed the baking industry. As the proverbial saying goes, he had flour in his veins.
He was enormously proud of his family's business, the Alfred Nickles Bakery, Navarre, Ohio. During his 70 years with the company, Mr. Nickles helped transform it from a home-delivery bakery to a regional wholesale bakery with more than 500 routes serving grocery stores, restaurants and institutions.
According to the A.S.B., he told people his hobby was golf, but he played only once a year. His hobby, in truth,was the family bakery that his father founded.
"He worked seven days each and every week," the A.S.B. biography on Mr. Nickles noted. "He grew up in a home next to the bakery. When he married, he moved one block from the bakery where he lived his entire life. He was known to check the bakery every single night."
The 2013 class will be officially inducted at A.S.B.'s Baking Tech, set for March 3-5 in Chicago.
