Houston’s ‘Bread Man’ Rises With Hot New Whole Foods Partnership

Bread Man Baking Company is on the rise. Already available in top Houston restaurants like Georgia James, Eunice, and Avondale Food & Wine, the bakery announced its breads will be available at five Houston-area Whole Foods stores beginning April 15. 

On Monday, the Austin-based grocer will sell Bread Man loaves such as Kalamata olive oregano, country sourdough, focaccia, and Bread Man’s baguette at its locations in Montrose, Upper Kirby, Bellaire, near the Galleria, and Briargrove/Memorial.    

“Whole Foods Market has very high standards in the products they carry, so for them to approach us within our first six months of business was a huge surprise and compliment to our team,” Bread Man owner Tasos Katsaounis said in a statement. “[Bread Man head baker] Desirae and I are both ex Whole Foodies, so it’s special to know our breads will be in the stores of an ex-employer who we both enjoyed working for and respect.”
