- IT WILL BE MISSED: Klappenbach Bakery has been serving up fine pastries since 1975.
Terrible news with the imminent closing of Fordyce mainstay Klappenbach Bakery. According to Rex Nelson on his Southern Fried Blog, Norman and Lee Klappenbach (at ages 80 and 77, respectively) are tired. Their son Paul has tired of the 65 hour weeks and will move on to another career. Nelson reminisces about the bakery and other great places that have faded into the past.
