Joliet’s Milano Bakery: ‘Everybody Needs to Stay Calm’

JOLIET, IL — Located on the main gateway into downtown Joliet, Milano Bakery has been in business since 1915. Milano kept baking fresh loaves of bread and sweets during World War I, The Great Depression, World War II, Vietnam and other international crisis. Its latest challenge is growing concern about the spread of the new coronavirus.

On Monday, Will County confirmed that it had its first coronavirus case. By late afternoon Wednesday, Will County’s number was at eight cases.

“Right now, I think the biggest thing is that everybody needs to stay calm in these times. No knee-jerk reactions,” Milano Bakery co-owner Darin DeBenedetti told Joliet Patch during Wednesday’s interview.
