FLEMMING HANSEN - OWNER, BAKER

IMG_3211.jpeg

Copenhagen Bakery + Cafe made its debut in the small Long Island town of Northport in 1998. The only Scandinavian bakery on Long Island is owner operated by Flemming Hansen. At the age of 16 in Ørbæk, Denmark, Flemming began his career as an apprentice at a local bakery. In 1985, after three years as an apprentice, he was offered an opportunity to work as an exchange student in Danish owned Olsens Bakery located in Solvang, California. Solvang, a Scandinavian themed-town was founded by Danish immigrants in Santa Barbara County, California.

 

As an immigrant and small business owner, Flemming is proud to employ over 40 employees from numerous countries. This cozy waterfront bakery has become so popular they expanded not only their space but their menu too. Copenhagen Bakery + Cafe is proud to offer a wide assortment of daily fresh baked goods and daily prepared cafe items. In July 2023 the bakery will be celebrating it’s 25th anniversary. Stop by to celebrate with us!
