The History of ButterKrust® in Texas: ButterKrust is a well-known bread brand with deep roots in Texas and a history that is linked to a family of German immigrants with a strong commitment to quality baking. Will and Emma Richter opened their first bakery in San Antonio in 1882. Over the years, their business prospered and in 1912, Richter's Bakery purchased the ButterKrust franchise in Texas. For the next 83 years, Richter's churned out thousands of loaves of tasty ButterKrust bread in its distinctive blue-checkered packaging for Texans around the state. Richter's Bakery is now a part of Flowers Foods, a company with its own long tradition of quality baking. But while the bakery's name has changed, you can still taste the legacy of Will and Emma Richter's love of baking in every fresh and delicious loaf of ButterKrust Bread.
