Manuel Bedoy learned the skill of baking sweet bread from his father in Mexico. In 1961 Manuel and Emma Bedoy opened their own bakery, with perseverance and hard work, they were able to succeed as one of the most recognized bakeries in San Antonio, Texas. The Bedoy family began the tradition to prepare “Pan de Muerto” when the Rector of the San Fernando Cathedral asked Mr. Bedoy to prepare a traditional “Pan de Muerto”. Manuel Bedoy and his family started a tradition that has blossomed in San Antonio and now is part of “Dia de los Muertos celebration”. Another contribution to San Antonio tradition started 50 yrs ago when Mr. Manuel Bedoy baked the first 5 Roscas de Reyes in San Antonio, since then the Bedoy Family continues the tradition by baking Roscas de Reyes in celebration of the Dia de Los Reyes using the original family recipe.
