TAMPA (FOX 13) - Tampa staple La Segunda Bakery is looking for a few good men -- or women. It’s because customers like Raysa Quero from Temple Terrace go out of their way for the Cuban bread, which is made the old fashioned way.
“It is amazing. I love it,” Quero said.
Making that bread is a bit of an art form.
“It is a slow, deliberate process that we use that’s been around for 100 years,” said Copleand More, a fourth-generation owner.
Eighteen-thousand loaves are made each day, each with the signature palm leaf on top, an old-world tradition.
As the bakery looks to expand to a new location, the trouble is finding more bakers with the craft for Cuban bread. It is a lost art in our highly-automated society.
“People that walk in the door rarely have experience with Cuban bread,” said More. “There’s no school for Cuban bread.”
It can be a labor-intensive job but More says they offer competitive pay and benefits.
“The people we're looking for have to be dedicated and want to learn a craft,” he continued.
It’s a craft honed over 100 years and still going strong.
