So long, Parisian French Bread

Nancy Berry | Aug 22, 2005 12:38 AM

Friday was the last day for the Parisian sourdough bread bakery in SF. The bakery had been producing bread for 149 years. Kansas-based Interstate Bakeries, the owner of Parisian, closed the bakery and discontinued the brand. No more red, white and blue Parisian bread bags in the grocery store or at the airport. Sad...

Oh, and by the way, they also closed the Hostess/Wonder Bread bakery off Potrero in SF on Friday. In total, about 650 people lost their jobs.

Here's a link to the SF Chronicle article in Saturday's paper:
