Corpus Christi Mayor Paulette Guajard said he sees the bakery as a symbol of Hispanic culture.
Corpus Christi, Texas — City Bakery on South 19th Street and Coleman Avenue celebrated today.
It was due to the designation of historic landmarks that came after review and approval by Corpus Christi’s Landmark Commission and the City Council.
Originally, the name was Mexico City Bakery, which was started by Antonio and Juanita Gomez in the 1940s. Their daughter and her husband later changed their name to City Bakery in 1958.
Elias Castillo III, the great-grandson of the original owner, considers the bakery a heritage.
“It’s about solidifying my grandparents and great-grandparents and consolidating their legacy,” Castillo said.
Mayor Paulette Guajard of Corpus Christi said he sees the bakery as a symbol of Hispanic culture.
“Here, in this wonderful building behind me, we carry on that tradition. It preserves our Hispanic culture,” Guajardo said.
The business has been in operation for three generations. Bakery butter biscuits, pandulce and breakfast tacos have become a staple of the community.
