Celebrate the tradition of “Hygge”

(Pronounced “hooga”)


“Hygge“ means creating a nice, warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life. The warm glow of candlelight is hygge. Friends and family, that’s hygge too. And let’s not forget eating and drinking, preferably sitting around the table for hours on end, discussing the big and small things in life. Perhaps the Danish idea of hygge explains why the Danes are often considered the happiest people in the world.

“There is nothing quite as comforting as a slice of delicious Kringle and a cup of hot coffee.”

This is what our family believes and this is why we love to bake.  Since 1949 the Olesen Family has been faithfully committed to baking quality Kringle and other Danish pastries.  We provide you with Kringle that is light, tender, flakey, moist, and quality ingredients.  We strive to provide you with outstanding service that comes from our family’s values and integrity (more photos).

It was in the early 1900’s when Christian Olesen, immigrated to Racine, Wisconsin as a boy from Denmark and brought with him a desire to learn a trade and an entrepreneurial spirit.  In May of 1949 Christian Olesen partnered with Harvey Holtz and founded O&H Bakery.

Christian’s son Ray and wife Myrna purchased the Holtz share of the business in 1963.  They worked hard to build the bakery business and taught their three sons, Dale, Mike, and Eric, to respect and honor their Family principles with everything they bake and do.

The Family tradition of baking excellence continues today with the fourth generation of children and talented bakers.  At O&H Danish Bakery we love baking with family values, pride and the passion of crafting traditional ethnic Danish pastries for you.

To our customers we want to say Thank You!  We are grateful and honored that you are our customer.  Many of you have made Kringle one of your most beloved family traditions.  We know some of your family and friends have begun similar traditions that often include Kringle.  And each year we hear from others that have begun their own Kringle tradition.  At the O&H Danish Bakery family business, we often remind ourselves that many things may change around us, but we begin and end with family, friends, traditions and ... Kringle.
