TMB Baking headquarters, located in South San Francisco, California, was founded originally in 1986 as Consulting and Marketing Services (CMS) by French natives Michel and Evelyn Suas. However, in 1996 the company began operating under its current name TMB Baking. In the same year, Michel founded the baking school San Francisco Baking Institute (SFBI), which quickly becoming a world renowned leader in artisan bread and pastry education. The global alumni base would go on to include thousands of professionals and enthusiasts alike.
Experts have praised SFBI for elevating the baking craft and raising the standard of bread and pastry education. SFBI also offers consulting to some of the top domestic and international bakeries. However, in order to focus on the school, his retail enterprises (Thorough Bread & Pastry and patisserie, which he co-founded with Belinda Leong), Mr. Suas sold TMB Baking to a group of employees in 2011.
