About Us

From our family to yours

Hello! We’re Preston & Sarah Lowder – Owners & Founders of Lowder Baking Company and Doc's Sandwich Shop & Deli.

We're both Shreveport, Louisiana natives, and we began Lowder King Cakes by making small batches of king cakes and cookies during Mardi Gras seasons and sharing with family and friends. Before we knew it, demand increased and we grew out of our home kitchen. We decided it was time to pursue our dream to open a local bakery - we quit our full-time jobs and opened up our first bakery storefront in January 2019, now known as Lowder Baking Company.

We're proud to offer high quality baked goods made from scratch every single day. We use wholesome, high quality ingredients - including local ingredients when possible. Our menu changes weekly, and includes: Breakfast Pastries, Cinnamon Rolls, French Bread & Baguettes, Assorted Breads, Cookies, Brownies, Cookie Cakes, Coffee & Espresso, Take & Bake Meals, and much more!

Our famous, fresh baked Lowder King Cakes are available during Mardi Gras seasons, which starts for us each year on King’s Day (January 6th) until Mardi Gras Day.

We’re so happy for the opportunity to live our dream right here in North Louisiana. We would love for you to come visit us at Lowder Baking Company - and next door at Doc’s Sandwich Shop & Deli!
