Die Vorfahren von Patrick Donmoyer kamen aus der Pfalz, Baden-Württemberg, dem Elsass und der Schweiz. 1736 haben sie ihre Heimat verlassen, um in Amerika ein neues Leben zu beginnen. Eines der wichtigsten kulturellen Güter ist dabei bis heute erhalten geblieben: ihre Sprache. Patrick gehört zu den jüngsten Sprechern in seinem Umfeld. „Es ist schwer zu lernen, weil man nicht gerade viele Leute zum Reden hat. Aber ich habe vergleichsweise viele Leute in meiner Nachbarschaft, die diese Sprache sprechen. Und so kann ich Pennsylfornisch-Deitsch reden, wann immer ich möchte.“ The Pennsylvania German Cultural Heritage Center Kutztown University of Pennsylvania #SWRHeimat

Phillip Malone and Sons Bakery

Saluti! Addio! The End of an Era...

It is with heavy hearts that the Malone Family announces the official closing of our beloved bakery after over 100 years in business. This was a difficult decision, but after the recent illness of our cousin Keith, who is doing much much better, and the death of the last brother Ernie in 2017, we found it impossible to stay open without the knowledge and expertise these two men possessed.

Many members of our family have worked at the bakery at one point during their lives, whether it was their first job, helping out during holidays or a way to get back up on their feet. They thanked their lucky stars that they always had a place to go, bread to eat, and pizza to devour! We, as many of you, included our family's pizza and bread at parties, baptisms, picnics, Fridays during Lent and virtually at any gathering we could think of where others needed food. This food was the lifeblood of many of our happiest moments, childhood memories and brought us so many wonderful friends and customers over the years.

The Southside of Allentown has been our home since the beginning and we want to thank its residents for allowing us to touch your lives like you touched ours. From the earliest times in the 1920s when Phillip Malone traveled door-to-door selling bread to our neighbors (often giving away loaves of bread to those who couldn't afford it) to the many wonderful businesses like The Brass Rail and Zandys who proudly sold out product. The 40s, 50s 60s and 70s was a booming time for us when businesses relied on our Italian bread and pizza to feed their hungry customers.

Over the years our children and grandchildren became know at their schools for bringing in bread and pizza, bonding over a single Sicilian-style slice with friends who never tried "the square kind" before, while making new memories with others who made our product a staple in their lives.

We know how much the bakery meant to our community and we sincerely thank you for always thinking of us. We frequently had customers come in from out of town, from all over the country, just to stop in and order a pizza or eat a hot roll right from the oven (and of course pull out the middle)!

We want everyone to know how grateful we are to have been open this long, to have seen so many things come and go and to have made such amazing friends over the years. The Southside of Allentown, the Lehigh Valley, won't be the same without Malone's Bakery...

This page will remain up and updated with family and bakery memories from time to time and of course we ask that each and every one of you add to your "pinned memories post" or please feel free to share your memories on this post. We know this is sad, but we hope you can remember the good times.. and the best times.. that we had over these long, beautiful and of course delicious 100 years.

I also wanted to take the opportunity to pass along that the Lower Mac historical society got a new hi res scanner for the Township History Museum (located at the Camp Olympic barn). Anyone with old photos of the area they'd love to borrow them to scan, document and catalog!
