Community staple Elliott’s Bakery of Trenton standing strong after 90 years in business

TRENTON, Mich. – For 90 years, Elliott’s Bakery in downtown Trenton has been serving decadent treats.

“It’s kind of surreal almost unbelievable that the bakery has been open this long and I’m blessed to be able to continue the legacy here,” said Kris Davidson, owner of Elliott’s Bakery.

Davidson grew up in the area and throughout the highs and lows that life brings, one constant was her beloved butter bud.

“When I would come in I would ask the previous owners for the recipe,” said Davidson.

They told her she would have to buy the bakery to find out, which Davidson ended up doing.

She bought the bakery three years ago continuing a tradition that’s woven itself into the fabric of this downriver community.

“It’s an institution down here, it really is everyone knows Elliott’s Bakery,” said Bobby Vidojevski, whose family previously owned the business.
