The Don Pan International Bakery® story traces its roots to a small village in Spain, where Luis Gorrin, one of the founders, was born in 1917. Luis Gorrin believed that greater opportunities awaited them in the Americas; and, in 1946, the family immigrated to Venezuela.

Juan Gorrin, and Alvaro Gorrin, Sr., the company’s founders were born in Canary Island, Spain. Their schooling was in Venezuela, where they studied commerce and medicine.  However, they pursued a career in business instead. Their business background included real estate and banking, as well as bakery and franchise enterprises. They have served on the board of Directors for important financial institutions.

The Gorrin family found a receptive audience for the authentic, European influence in baked goods, and soon the Don Pan story began. For years, the family produced a variety of fine baked goods in their South American communities, and dreamed of expanding the business into North America.
