Our wish at the Arlington Cake Box Bakery is to provide our customers with freshly baked products made from our original scratch recipes. To accomplish this we rely on a dedicated baking staff, consisting of bakers, decorators and sales associates with over 100 years of combined experience. The Arlington Cake Box family enjoys creating delicious bakery products for the communities that we serve.

This family owned business was started by Walter and Wilma Aronson in 1949. Walter mastered his baking skills while working at his father's Chicago bakery. Walter and Wilma opened the Arlington Cake Box near the corner of Campbell and Dunton in downtown Arlington Heights. When he opened the bakery, Walter brought with him the made from scratch, Swedish and German, recipes he had grown up with. Walter and Wilma continued the tradition of quality, taste, and service he learned from his father.

In 1978, the business was passed onto Walter and Wilma Aronson's daughter Donna and her husband Robert Bollmann. Robert and Donna moved the bakery about 12 blocks from downtown Arlington Heights to the Westgate Park and Shop. Robert and Donna dedicated their lives to the bakery providing new recipes and baking techniques, while maintaining the family tradition of quality service.

Currently, the bakery is operated by Robert and Donna's daughter Karen and her husband Paul. Paul and Karen enjoy the challenges of operating a full-line production bakery and are constantly looking for new ideas for the bakery.

We hope you have the opportunity to visit us in the near future!
