More than 50 years ago, Roland and Marlene Brünz opened Café Brünz in the idyllic Waldachtal/Black Forest. Café Brünz is still owned by the family now and continues to be a popular destination for tourists and spa guests. Roland Brünz put his heart, soul and passion into laying the foundation for the later success story of Pfalzgraf Konditorei. By the mid-70s, frozen cakes and gateaux were already sent out to guests - a pioneering service at the time.


Roland Brünz established Konditorei Brünz in Waldachtal-Salzstetten in the Black Forest and was one of the first producers of frozen gateaux to supply German food retailers.


Pfalzgraf Konditorei was established.



Since 1989, Dirk Brünz has been the Director of the owner-managed family company. Since then, Pfalzgraf Konditorei has grown both rapidly and sustainably - from 15 employees at the beginning to 250 employees 2015 and daily sales of approx. 40,000 frozen gateaux and cakes.


During its success story over the last 30 years, the medium-sized enterprise has become one of the best and most successful companies and a market leader in the German and European food service area.


On 23/05/2015, a fire broke out in the just completed new building which destroyed the entire production across an area of more than 20,000 m2. It was the biggest fire disaster in Baden-Württemberg since WWII.

Thanks to the successful team work and inventiveness of many tradespeople, planners and Pfalzgraf employees, Pfalzgraf Konditorei was rebuilt in record time of only 9 months.

2016 / 2017

On 04/07/2016, production started in the rebuilt production - one of the most state-of-the-art facilities in Europe.
