What’s in a name? The owners of Three Brothers Bakery, a family-owned baking institution in Houston are asking the public that very question. The bakery is using National Gingerbread Day – June 5th – to invite customers, fans and strangers alike for their help in naming its iconic Gingerbread Man and to stop by the bakery to pick up some Gingerbread Men (or order some online) to take along on your summer vacation.
The well-loved Gingerbread Man, who has worked tirelessly to promote the bakery since the three brothers, Sigmund, Sol and Max Jucker, opened the doors to the original Houston location on Holmon Street on May 8, 1949, is finally taking a break from the 24/7 business of measuring, mixing, baking and delivering. After 62 years of diligently ensuring unsurpassed quality control and customer service, the folks at Three Brothers Bakery have decided it’s time for the Gingerbread Man to get a real name and venture forth from the bakery to spend the summer months traveling and enjoying sights he’s never seen!
The online poll and Gingerbread Man sightings will kick off on Sunday, June 5th. The poll to name him will last through the month of June. The winning name will be announced June 29. To enter, just log onto our website at http://www.3brothersbakery.com and click on the Gingerbread Man button! Poll updates and photos will be posted throughout the campaign.
“We are hoping our many loyal customers and friends, as well as strangers -- will help us choose a name,” said Robert Jucker, fifth-generation co-owner and head baker for Three Brother Bakery. “We really want him to get out of the bakery this summer and see the sights, so be sure and take him along with you send us your family friendly photos and videos that include him.” He definitely wants to see more of the world – starting in Houston and Texas, but he’s interested in seeing faraway places and experiencing new adventures too! We feel certain that he will have the time of his life this summer!”
