Founded in 1930 in downtown Winston-Salem, Dewey’s became known for their beloved Moravian Cookies. As the bakery thrived, WWII posed unexpected challenges due to sugar rationing. However, the incredible community stepped forward, offering to bring a cup of sugar with their cake orders to ensure the bakery’s sweet treats remained plentiful.
Tragedy struck in 1955 when a devastating fire engulfed the bakery on Easter Monday. Yet, the resilient spirit of Winston-Salem quickly rallied together, offering temporary baking facilities and a helping hand to ensure the bakery’s speedy recovery. That same year brought new beginnings as the bakery found a new home in the Thruway Shopping Center. It’s now the sole original business that continues to flourish today.
Innovation has been a recurring theme throughout the years. In 1960, they unveiled a captivating flavor – the Meyer Lemon cookie. With its grated lemon zest and cold-pressed Meyer Lemon oil, it became an instant hit among adoring fans. Dewey’s also introduced other cookie flavors like Triple Ginger, Toasted Coconut, Salted Caramel, and Brownie Crisp.
Dewey’s has expanded, with two locations in Winston-Salem and one in Greensboro. Their cookies are also available in grocery stores for customers to enjoy nationwide.
Beyond the kitchen, the devoted team at Dewey’s Bakery is dedicated to giving back to communities in Winston-Salem and beyond. Recognizing that sweetness is meant to be shared, they strive to make a positive impact.
Through the Dewey’s Bakery fundraising program, they have raised over $4 million for various communities in Winston-Salem and across North Carolina. The team expresses deep gratitude towards the schools, churches, nonprofits, and other groups who have partnered with them, collectively working towards their mission of providing enrichment and support to those in need. Funds raised through their baked goods have contributed to important causes such as high school band uniforms, playground equipment, community enrichment programs, transitional housing support, and much more. Dewey’s Bakery is proud to play a role in uplifting communities and spreading joy through its delicious treats.
Dewey’s sells cakes, pastries, ice cream, and more. You can order packaged treats to your door, order online for pickup, or make them yourself at home!
