Background & History:
Gingerbread Traditions, Inc. (GTI) is an Oregon-based corporation which manufactures high quality, edible, gingerbread, sugar cookie kits and cookies. We provide premium products to families, corporations, resorts, country clubs, and organizations looking for a fun, social, and community building experience.
As a family owned business, Gingerbread Traditions, Inc. first started as a fun idea centered around creating gingerbread parties for our two children when they were 3 and 5 years old. This grew into an idea of starting a business making gingerbread houses. GTI was established in May of 2002 with two gingerbread house offerings. Since then sales have doubled and tripled to 45,000 units sold in 2013 with over 25 different designs and product lines.
In 2004 we moved to a 1,000 square foot facility in downtown Oregon City, Oregon. While in Oregon City, we purchased our first cookie machine and were able to produce over 175,000 parts. By 2011 we were selling 16,000 house/kits plus 11,500 cookie kits. We produced over 75 different house and cookie kits along with hundreds of candies, fun packs, and icings.
We moved to our current location in 2012 and now reside in a custom built facility in Portland, Oregon. In our 5,000 square foot facility, we have a custom bakery and packaging room, extensive shipping and storage capacity, and business offices. We employ up to 20 people throughout the year and 5 people (full-time and part-time) year round.
Our corporate philosophy centers on strong customer service, a belief in providing a high quality product and a commitment to giving back to our community.
