NORTHRIDGE, Calif.—Porto’s Bakery, one of the most popular bakeries in Southern California, is ready to launch its new store at the Northridge Fashion Center.
The new Porto’s is now under construction and is expected to be open in January, according to the a company representative.
While preparing for the new store, Porto’s Bakery has been joining the Northridge Farmers Market every Wednesday from 4–7 p.m.
The Northridge store will become Porto’s sixth location in Southern California.
Currently, Porto’s Barkery has locations in Glendale, West Covina, Burbank, Buena Park, and Downey.
Porto’s is known for its signature cheese rolls, refugiados, and potato balls. The bakery also provides nationwide shipping services for their unbaked frozen pastries, so customers can bake them fresh at home.
Porto’s Bakery was first opened in 1976 on Sunset Boulevard in Echo Park, California.
Rosa Porto, the owner of Porto’s bakery, grew up in Cuba and ran an at-home bakery for years before she immigrated to the United States.
After Rosa and her family arrived in California, she utilized her exceptional baking skills and continued to sell cakes and pastries from home until she opened her first storefront.
Rosa’s motto, “Quality is the number one ingredient in everything we do,” helped the bakery build up a great reputation and countless loyal customers.
After Rosa passed away in 2019, her three children and grandchildren have carried on Rosa’s legacy and continue to grow the business.
