Our Story

In 1969, Mr. Edward Bou Habib founded Wooden Bakery in Jal El Dib, Lebanon with a vision to provide top-notch bread.

Over the past decade, Wooden Bakery revolutionized the industry in Lebanon by setting new standards and upgrading its product and services.

The innovative contributions of his sons Mr. Assaad & Mr. Ghassan, in 1996, led to the brand's expansion, marking the opening of its initial retail outlet in 1999 and the establishment of franchising in 2002. Presently, boasting over 32 branches across Lebanon, Wooden Bakery has not only reshaped the local baking industry but has also ventured internationally into Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the UAE, Iraq, and Kuwait. This growth underscores their steadfast commitment to delivering quality and innovation, transcending geographical boundaries.
