Mancini Bread Company originated in 1926 when James Mancini, an Italian immigrant opened a one room bakery in McKees Rocks, PA. At fourteen, Jim apprenticed himself to a baker. Jim, who loved to experiment, developed his own bread formula. He rented a space and began a tradition by baking 100 loaves a night and then delivering the fresh bread to his customers the next morning. The "twist " bread was his trademark. Jim's father, Frank Mancini, built a small bakery building in the West Park section of McKees Rocks for him. Jim's brother, Ernie joined him as a partner. Ernie's son, Frankie, joined the firm in 1971. Although Mancini's® now bakes more than ten thousand loaves a day, the bakery still utilizes most of the same Old World techniques, which Jim Mancini practiced in 1926. The bakery employs forty-eight people and operates twenty-four hours a day except for Tuesday and Saturday afternoons. The bread is delivered to restaurants, grocery stores and hoagie shops in the Greater Pittsburgh area.
