Women at Work | Fourth generation bakery owners


Their history is as rich as their desserts!

A family has owned the Pennsylvania Bakery for more than thirty-years.

The family of bakers come all the way from Germany, but don't worry, Central Pennsylvanians only have to drive to Camp Hill!

Cupcakes, cheesecakes, wedding cakes....cookies...breads...the menu at the Pennsylvania Bakery in Camp Hill is long ...and it's delicious.

"We really hope to emulate a full line bakery like you would see fifty-years ago or something like that," Rachelle Schenk said.

Meet the Schenk sisters....Rachelle, Hillary and Kendall.

These women at work are fourth generation bakery owners.

"It's a lot of fun. Some of my earliest memories are playing on the flour bags downstairs in our storage area,” Rachelle Schenk said.

Their parents opened the bakery thirty-two years ago.

"I am so proud of them. I can't imagine being twenty-one, twenty-two and opening the business," Hillary Schenk said.

The first Shenk family bakery was opened in Germany.

When the family moved to the united states, they opened a bakery in Philadelphia.

For more than three-decades, the people of Central Pennsylvania have been coming to their Camp Hill location.

"We know a lot of customers by name. I name them off in the morning, ‘like how are you doing?’ I know a lot of what's going on in their lives. So I think they do appreciate that. We would consider them friends, Yeah,” Rachelle Schenk said.

The Schenk sisters enjoy what they do and they say they learned from the best!

"Mom, I have no words. I don't know how you and dad do what you do," Rachelle Schenk said.
