Dating back to 1959. We now have 3 Generations of family continually operating a family bakery with original recipes and continued dedication to customer service.
In 1959 as an eager 18-year Pasquale Siciliano began his career in the food industry at Exhibition bakery in Canning Street Carlton, starting as a delivery driver, the Miglironi family saw potential and trusted in Pasquale taking him in “as a son” allowing him to continually move up the ranks until reaching the position of Group Supervisor of Dispatch. In this time, Pasquale also had done 2 years in baking for Exhibition. Due to his friendly nature he was allowed to become the Sales Representative for Exhibition Bakery becoming the forefront of the business.
This is over a 21-year period until Exhibition shut their doors in 1980. Pasquale then left on his own venture to purchase a bakery in airport west, until Sunnicrust bakery later bought him in 1985 out due to this bakery being a major competitor to Sunnicrust and employed Pasquale for the next 10 years due to his great communication skills and expert reputation in customer service.
Pasquale left Sunnicrust in 1995 to venture with his son Marco Siciliano to purchase an existing bakery in Assembly drive Tullamarine adopting the name Universal Bread and Roll Bakery.
In partnership with his son Marco, they ventured to bring Universal bakery to new heights as the ever-changing Melbourne is constantly challenging new businesses.
In this time Pasquale and Marco made dealings with high Value Company’s ranging from Catering to 5 Star hotels and even interstate and overseas deals, Marco represented Universal Bakery at Multiple food Expos in Singapore and Europe., Expanding our trade to overseas markets.
Pasquale and Marco wanted to maintain the family value of the business continuing to provide a family orientated customer service, while keeping in touch with original recipes and overseas influences that rubbed off on a Multicultural Melbourne. Introducing new ideas such as Brioche and Sourdough which have all originated from Europe.
As new challenges arose it came the time to leave Assembly drive after 22 years and expand the business to a 1-acre property in Edwardes St Reservoir with newer facility’s to further our position in the wholesale Market.
Today Pasquale has stepped back to overwatch the 2 generations take on his hard work over 40+ years that he has worked.
Currently Cynthia Savini who is Marks daughter has been in the business for 20 years and has a strong understanding of the ethics and principles of the business. Marcos son Eros Siciliano has recently taken on the role of Sales manager.
Universal Bakery Australia is continually looking to forward their position in the Wholesale Industry creating new avenues and relationships with existing and new customers.
We are big enough to cope but small enough to care.
