1-800 Charity Cars and Bakery Boss with Buddy Valastro team up to provide gift of vehicle for a struggling Bakery on Monday, May 27th

1-800 Charity Cars and Bakery Boss with Buddy Valastro team up to provide gift of vehicle for a struggling Bakery on Monday, May 27th



Memorial Day gets a whole lot sweeter this year as America’s favorite baker Buddy Valastro hits the road looking for a  struggling family bakery to help transform into a dough-making success. For the one-hour special, Buddy travels to Frankfort, NY to visit Friendly Bake Shop, an Italian-American bakery run by three generations of the Viti family. Open for 52 years, the business is suffering from outdated processes, broken equipment, and an old-school philosophy on running a small-town business. Buddy brings his world-famous blend of business skills and baking expertise to work with this family and challenge them to make big changes all in an effort to transform their crumbling dream into a dough-making enterprise.

1-800-Charity Cars donated a Chrysler Town and Country Van during the show as a surprise to Family Bakery for their delivery business. “Working with Bakery Boss was such a positive and uplifting experience” reflected Rose Hill, Spokesperson of 1-800-Charity Cars. “Any opportunity to help a struggling family transform their lives with a vehicle always gives us joy. Being part of the show is such an amazing opportunity for everyone to see how a donated vehicle can help change someone’s life.”


The new pilot BAKERY BOSS starts at 10 p.m. ET on TLC Monday, May 27th


BAKERY BOSS is produced for TLC by High Noon Entertainment.

This is SO AWESOME! Buddy and his whole family have been like house-hold talk since Cake Boss started! My kids and I watched this from almost the beginning with Buddy and his beautiful wife, Lisa!

The majority working in Carlo’s Bakery are family and those not family are treated like family! It’s just tickling me to pieces to see that Free Charity Cars has teamed up to do this!

A few years back after seeing so many episodes, my two wanted cannolis, just like Buddy’s famous cannolis that they’d make hundreds of and pass out right outside the bakery (seen on many episodes). I found a little bakery a bit of a travel from us and with the 2000 Mazda Protege we were gifted from FCC was able to get there with my kids. This was the only bakery we could find that ‘supposedly’ made cannolis similar to Buddy’s. We could only get a few because they were expensive but they were good!

Absolutely SUPER that FREE CHARITY CARS is working with Buddy Valastro and his family to help out a bakery in need!!! FCC is caring and wonderful! And Mr. Buddy V and Family are very caring and wonderfully good people!


This is really big news! Good news! Good news to help everyone take their minds off all the bad news that we are being inundated day-in and day-out going on in this crazy world of ours. We need to see MORE GOOD NEWS like this on internet and on TV too!

WAY-TO-GO BRIAN MENZIES and ALL FCC!!!! Thank you for finding this opportunity!!!!

If the Valastro Family should ever have the time to read here, “THANK YOU BUDDY! You have a warm and loving family! You’re a great Dad and husband! And… can we ever see you go head-to-head with cooking against Chef Gordon Ramsay?” heehee

Wow… I am jazzed on all this!

This is BIG STUFF!!! In my humble opinion :)
