Firehook: What’s in a Name?

Firehook is not just a superfluous name concocted to make the guys sound extra-tough behind the ovens. It is actually a name rich in history, derived from the title bestowed upon bakers in Ancient Egypt. These men were referred to as ‘Firehooks,’ due to the hook-shaped tool that was used to pull baked breads from the oven during that era. So aside from sounding really cool, our name has a purpose. And, if it happens to make us sound extra tough, that’s ok too.
