A Bakery Opens In Barrie

RossErma

Fox’s Bakery & Deli’s tale begins on February 8th, 1978 when Ross and Erma Fox first opened doors to Buns Master Bakery. It would be the third Buns Master franchise to open in Canada, following Brampton, ON and Winnipeg, MB.

A Growing Business

Barrie residents loved their Buns Master Bakery, and the business continued to operate successfully well into the late 80’s. In fact, Ross and Erma’s location was consistently one of the top 5 stores out of 110 Buns Master franchises.

A Change of Scenery

The beginning of 1989 was bitter-sweet as Ross, along with his sons, Steve and Craig, headed to Windsor to launch and operate two Buns Master Bakeries. Steve used their opportunity in Windsor to learn, all the while remembering his roots in Barrie.
