My name is David Yori, owner of Yori’s Church Street Bakery. Yori’s bakery is a retail bakery that specializes in the creation of custom cakes, pastries, cookies, donuts, and traditional holiday treats. All of the baking is done on premise, guaranteeing the freshest products. We make all of our baked goods from scratch, using only the highest quality ingredients. We take pride in producing fresh, delicious tasting baked goods seven days a week.

At the bakery, I encourage my staff to use their creativity to produce new and unique treats for others to enjoy. My staff and I have a great passion for the art of baking, and take great pride in putting a smile on our customers faces with our baked goods. We love being your local West Chester bakery and creating mouthwatering baked goods at a reasonable price.

My Story

 
I started working in a bakery when I was 15 years old as an extra set of hands. All through high school and college I worked at the bakery and as I got handed more responsibilities my passion for baking grew. By working along side a master baker I was able to learn the trade of baking, later picking up two more part time jobs in two other bakeries. By the time I graduated from West Chester University in 2009, I was holding three part time bakery jobs.

At the bakery I started out at in high school I became the lead baker, and at my part time bakery job I became a decorator. My interest in bakeries had grown tremendously, sparking interest of opening up my own bakery. All through college I had thought about opening my own bakery. Due to the fact that there were no bakeries in town, I always felt that West Chester would be the perfect spot for one.

When I finally decided to start looking at locations for my very own bakery, I was shown many different locations available for rent. Some of these locations did spark my interest, but none compared to the 15 North Church Street location. Right in the center of town the location was perfect and the building was beautiful. I made it official and signed the lease in January of 2012 and immediately started installing equipment, acquiring permits, and getting proper ventilation. Everything I could have needed was started right away. I opened Yori’s Bakery on June 23, 2012.

Baking has always been a passion of mine but I have also been blessed to have the support of my family. My family has provided help and support throughout the whole process of opening the bakery. To this day they continue to help out at the bakery whenever they can. My girlfriend (who is now my fiance) that I met while working at a bakery has also helped me tremendously. She has stuck by my side while opening the bakery and has been the full time decorator and manager since day one.
