ABOUT US Since Bethel Bakery opened for business in the 1955 in the south hills section of Pittsburgh, generations of patrons have made their way to the shop for the bakery’s signature pastries, cookies, coffeecakes and one-of-a-kind cakes. With a number of years of bakery experience, a stint in the Navy behind him and a small inheritance, Morris Walsh, with characteristic determination, made his dream of owning his own bakery a reality when he and a partner opened for business during the Eisenhower administration. While his business partner left the venture within a few months, Morris soon gained another associate, his future wife, Anna. Together, the couple built the boutique bakery into one of the busiest and most beloved purveyors of high-quality baked goods in western Pennsylvania. And they did it while raising seven children, all of whom would eventually work in the family business. Today, a second generation of the Walsh family manages the bakery. John and his wife, Chris, took over day-to-day operations in 1991and expanded the already extensive inventory of baked goods, but Morris and Anna’s legacy of exceptional quality and customer service lives on. People travel for miles for a taste of Bethel Bakery’s signature buttercream […]

In 1964, Master Plumber Ted Lauderbaugh got his start in the plumbing and heating trade at the early age of 15 in Pittsburgh, PA. At the time, his brother–in-law was willing to train young Ted for a few years, alongside of his technical schooling, and in return he offered his 110% every day he showed up to work. With such a strong work ethic, it was only natural that Ted would want to open his own business, which is what he did in 1988. His new company, Lauderbaugh Plumbing & Heating Inc., would serve NJ until its eventual move to McDonald, PA in 1998, right outside of Pittsburgh. Now registered with the Commonwealth of PA, it specializes in installing new fixtures, sewers, gas lines, water lines, steam boilers, and sump pumps with French drains, as well as hot water boilers and heaters, and kitchen and bathroom remodeling services. Through hard work and dedication to each customer’s needs, Ted’s company has been very successful throughout the following four decades. In fact, the word-of-mouth referrals and recommendations he receives from his customers would grow Ted’s business more than any advertising firm could provide for him. For this, he is grateful, and will […]
