There they welcomed third child, William, and settled into life in Columbus – all while Wilhelm and his uncle Frank continued to increase bakery sales. In 1938, Wilhelm purchased the bakery from his aunt after his uncle died suddenly; at the same time his son, Frank, now 24 years old, began working at the bakery as the third generation. The bakery is now in its sixth generation, and in 2012 they celebrated their one-hundredth anniversary!
