About Kirsten’s Danish Bakery
In 1989, Kirsten wanted to keep her family in touch with the rich Danish heritage she had grown up with. So, she decided to open her own Danish bakery. Kirsten knew good quality bakery from her many trips to Denmark and from her uncle who operated a bakery in Odense, Denmark. Kirsten wanted to offer those same rich flavors and textures in Burr Ridge, Illinois (a suburb of Chicago).
Kirsten traveled to Denmark and returned with an experienced Danish baker to start her new business. A second Danish baker joined Kirsten several years later. Together, Kirsten’s team of bakers produces an assortment of delicious bakery products, including mouth-watering cakes and award winning Danish Kringles.
