Founded in 1971, Charlie’s Bakery has been a mainstay in the Orlando Conway area community for over 50 years. Recently, the original owners sold their bakery to the Hage family who are now taking over the shop – rebranding and updating the bakery, adding a home-made ice cream component, keeping many of the same Charlie’s original recipes, as well as adding a few touches of their own (like the family carrot cake recipe!). The iconic “chef’s hat” logo can be found on the pastries and items that kept the original “Charlie’s” recipes untouched. “We are excited to carry on the rich history and tradition that Charlie’s Bakery has given to the Conway community for 50 years” said Tricia Hage, new owner.

Charlie’s Bakery will now be known as Charlie’s Bakery & Creamery. Owning an ice cream shop has always been a dream of new owner, Tricia Hage, combining her love of family, tradition, community, and all things sweet, including homemade ice cream. “It is without saying that Charlie’s has been a landmark and a tradition to this community. Our family has known and loved Charlie’s since its inception in the 1970’s,” said Hage. “We look toward the future with some new additions, traditions, and family recipes of our own. Our family has been a part of this community for over 75 years. The Hage family has been small business owners for generations in the Greater Orlando area and we are excited to carry on that legacy.”

Tricia Hage is an entrepreneur, lifelong Orlando resident, and the new owner of Charlie’s Bakery & Creamery. For over 20 years, she has been a self-taught baker and an avid businesswoman. Tricia’s mother-in- law, Sandy, is also an avid baker. Her delectable recipes and love of baking inspired Tricia.
