About Our Founder
Kevin Johnson, CEO and President
Kevin Johnson founded Johnson Bros. Bakery Supply, Inc. in 1994 with his brother Blain, and acquired sole ownership of the company in 2012. As head of the largest Texas-based supplier of bakery products, Kevin takes his greatest satisfaction not in JBBS’ market successes but rather in its work to improve lives through cooperative outreach with organizations such as Project Angel Fares, Susan G. Komen, the Walker Belden Foundation and HeartGift.
At Johnson Bros. Bakery Supply, our mission is to make gathering sweeter by connecting customers, families and community through food. We keep this mission going by providing simple solutions for our customers in the bakery and brewery industry.
Our Core Values
These are a small set of vital and timeless guiding principles for Johnson Bros. Bakery Supply, Inc. These values define our culture and who we truly are. Our core values are: Can Do/Will Do Attitude, Wholehearted, Be Committed and Never Settle.
Starting from Scratch
Johnson Bros. Bakery Supply, Inc. was founded by brothers Kevin and Blain Johnson in September of 1994. Driven by an unwavering commitment to providing quality baking supplies at a fair price, the brothers’ upstart company quickly found a home in the San Antonio market, with offices in Carrollton and a distribution center in Houston to follow. In 2012, after 18 years at JBBS, Blain Johnson decided to hang up his apron to pursue his passion for mission work full-time. Following Blain’s departure, Kevin acquired sole ownership of JBBS.
Rising to the Occasion
Informed by his keen understanding of the baking industry, Kevin soon identified an untapped market for professional cake supplies at the consumer level. What started as a hunch would become Johnson Bros. most ambitious undertaking to date, and the first Over The Top Cake Supplies retail store was launched in 2013, followed by additional locations in San Antonio, Round Rock and The Woodlands.
In 2015, as the craft beer market evolved from niche curiosity to bonafide market force, JBBS founded Brewery Direct, LLC, a brewery supply company serving Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas. The following year, JBBS would introduce our Bakeaholic private label product line.
Back in the Kitchen
Today, nearly 25 years after Johnson Bros. Bakery Supply was founded, our commitment to providing quality baking supplies at a fair price remains the same.
