Established in 1937 by Paul Hoeckele Sr. and Joseph Hoeckele, Hoeckele Bakery has been a cherished institution in Perryville, Missouri. Starting with a humble location at 4 N. Jackson St., we began by offering a delectable assortment of donuts, pastries, bread, coffee cakes, and cookies.
Paul Hoeckele Jr. joined the family business after the passing of Joseph Hoeckele, and we expanded our offerings to include a variety of cakes, including beautiful wedding cakes. Paul Jr.'s wife, Donna Buchheit, became our skilled head cake decorator.
The Hoeckele family's passion for baking has remained strong. Our five children have all contributed to the bakery's success, carrying forward our commitment to quality and tradition. In 1999, Paul Jr. and Donna retired, passing the torch to their sons Paul III and Joseph, along with their wives Angela and Yvette.
