TMB Baking

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. For more about Michel Suas and SFBI, please visit their website.

Today, TMB Baking remains a full-service baking equipment, small wares & accessories, and consulting company who has been proudly serving the global artisan bread and baked goods industry for decades. Over the years, CMS/TMB Baking has served thousands of its bakery customers by providing them with process and layout consulting services, bakery equipment selection, installation, spare parts & technical support, along with accessories and small wares to allow bakeries to grow and flourish. TMB Baking continues to be located next door to SFBI, and serves as an enduring resource to the baking industry. Together, TMB Baking and SFBI constitute globally recognized centers of baking excellence, attracting customers, students and consulting clients worldwide.

I want to place an order, but I want to know how much shipping costs first. Who can I contact to find out the shipping costs?

If you order on-line, you will be given an actual (credit card) or estimated (accounts on terms) shipping cost. If you order by phone, we can call or email you with an estimate after pulling together your order.

I am opening up a bakery and do not know where to begin. Who can I contact to get some guidance?

Give a call to Martin Boyd, VP Business Development, at (650) 239-6324 or email contact@tmbbaking.com and he’ll be happy to spend time with you to understand your needs and formulate a recommendation.

My machine is not working properly. Who can I contact for technical support?

Give a call to Michael Kudatsky, our Technical Support Manager, at (650) 239-6324 or send him an email at parts@tmbbaking.com with photos and descriptions of your issue.

I need to order a part for my machine and I am not sure which part I need to order. Who can I contact?

Michael Kudatsky, our Technical Support Manager, is the person you need to call at (650) 239-6324 or you can send an email to parts@tmbbaking.com.

I want to set up an account for payment. Who can I contact?

Please print and fill out this Credit Application and send it to our Accounting Representative at accounting@tmbbaking.com.

Can I pick up my order instead of having it shipped?

Sure. We are open Monday – Friday, from 8:00am – 5:30pm, but there’s usually someone at our facility from 7:15am – 7:00pm if you let us know when you’re coming.

Can I have my order be prepared for pickup?

Yes, please let us know about 2 hours before the time you would like to come. We can go ahead and process your credit card ahead of time and have your order and your receipt ready to go.

I do not see the product that I am looking for. Who can I contact to see if you carry that product?

We carry and represent such a deep level of bakery equipment, smallwares, and bakery essentials that it’s impossible to list them all. If you are looking for a specialized piece of equipment, please call Martin Boyd. If you need a pan, smallware, or other bakery essential, ask for Yessi. We can all be reached at (650) 239-6324 or contact@tmbbaking.com.

Why do I not see pricing on the website?

We provide pricing on smallwares, but much of our equipment comes from Europe and prices and terms can fluctuate with currencies and your timing needs. We prefer to first discuss and understand your bakery equipment needs and then we can secure a quote from our manufacturers and vendors and, in turn, provide you with a comprehensive quote, which may include assembly/installation fees and other terms and conditions.
