In 1930, their maternal grandfather, Hassan Halaby, opened Damascus Bakery, a local storefront bakery on Atlantic Avenue, Brooklyn, New York, responsible for producing Middle Eastern Pita and Lavash Breads to feed the local community.
During the 1960’s, ‘70’s, & ‘80’s, their father, Anthony Mafoud, and their uncle, Henry Halaby, introduced the Pitas, Lavash and other traditional baked goods made with Old-Fashioned Excellence to the other boroughs of New York as well as to other cities in America.
By the mid ‘90’s, third generation bakers, Edward and David Mafoud, began the Innovative Baking of traditional flatbreads –such as Lavash and Pita- into Artisan Wraps, Roll-Ups and Panini breads. Their products now sell in all fifty states, and even other countries.
Damascuys Bakery is certified Brooklyn-Made.
