The story of our names comes from our owner's dogs...her husband, Lewis, gave her a pug puppy (Max) as a wedding present in 1986. Shortly thereafter, they got Max a playmate, another pug, Bitterman, to keep him company since they were both always a the shop! Both Max and Bitterman have since passed, and Maxie B's is a lasting tribute to the role they both played in the early beginnings of the bakery. Now we have opened our arms to a new pug! Maxine, the same breed and Max and Bitterman, can now be seen in her own personal corner of the bakery office, reminding us all of the furry namesake that is Maxie B's.
