Fortunata's Bakery is owned and operated by Ruth Clifton. Ruth has over 15 years of baking experience, specifically in traditional Italian bread baking, and many more years of experience feeding hungry mouths! While several of her seven children were still fairly young, Ruth became a baker's apprentice to Armand Argenio in the Fortunata location when it was known as Bread and Butter Bakery. When Armand retired, Ruth decided to take over the bakery, keeping the traditional baking methods that she learned from Armand (who is a 4th generation Italian American baker) while incorporating some modern techniques and products.
The name Fortunata's comes from a stray cat that used to hang out outside Bread and Butter Bakery. Armand named the cat Fortunata, which means luck in Italian. Fortunata was feisty, sweet and always put a smile on Ruth and Armand's face. Fortunata's bakery embodies her spirit, and we hope it brings fortuna to you as well!
