Teeny Foods

 

Once on a hunting trip, a Lebanese Bread, which was made by one of the hunter's wife, was shared with his fellow hunters. Everyone raved about the bread and all agreed that the hunter should open his own bakery and sell it to others.

So, with $500 of borrowed money, a $25 mixer, a free commercial oven and a strong religious conviction, Sam Teeny and his wife Minerva launched Middle East Bakeries, Inc. in 1964, with a preservative free product called Pocket Bread TM. Their first location was in an old bank building in the Montavilla district.

Sam retired and his sons Rick and Parry Teeny continued on in the bakery, so in 1989 (the company's 25th anniversary) the name was changed to Teeny Foods Corp, in honor of Sam and Minerva Teeny. Rick Teeny and his wife Deborah took over the company in 1996 and with many prayers and the help of their amazing management team, they expanded the business in 2003 by moving into a 58,000 square foot, state of the art facility, in Gresham. In 2008 they were honored with the Family Owned Small Business of the Year Award by the U.S. Small Business Administration.

Along with the original Pocket Bread TM, they added Pizza Crusts (over 200 varieties) and eventually Greek Pita and Focaccia, as well as breadsticks, cheese-filled breadsticks, and other hand-held entrees.

A wholesale bakery that focuses on contract manufacturing, Teeny Foods assists their customers from start to finish, in creating their own signature products. With a commitment and dedication to produce delicious, healthy and convenient food, their product lines continue to grow including specialized custom recipes to meet customers' needs, including all natural, whole grain, low fat, etc. Their end users include restaurants, sports arenas, frozen grocery, and schools.

When it comes to quality, Teeny Foods delivers. As their logo says: "Good Things Come in Teeny Packages".
