October Happenings

October 2016

It’s been a busy month…
Washington DC was named a Michelin Guide city this month, and 12 restaurants have received 1 or 2 Michelin stars. This is wonderful news for the newly-starred establishments, and great news for the city. With our 12 stars, we equal Chicago. Lyon Bakery is proud to supply some of the newly-starred establishments.
In August, DC was named as the Bon Appetit Restaurant City of the Year. Supplying many of the restaurants mentioned by Bon Appetit, we are thrilled that our city has been recognized as a serious food destination.
The International Baking Industry Exposition (IBIE2016) took place earlier this month in Las Vegas. The aim of us attending this expo was to learn about how best to access the latest in suppliers and technology; and to ensure we remain at the cutting edge of all that we do at Lyon Bakery. We checked out the newest, the best, the most extraordinary and of course the prototypes of baking equipment. Baking is a multi-billion dollar industry where competition is tough. We came back to DC, confident in the knowledge that we are in a great position to continue providing our customers with the very best artisan bread.
See you back here in November!
