Husband and wife Karen and Richard Blacker, are 30 year veterans in the food service business. Growing up in Newton, Richard worked at Blacker's Bros., a specialty fruit store owned by his father and a beloved staple in Newton Center that opened in the 1960's. From 1985 to 2005 Richard and Karen owned a wholesale cookie business. Blacker's Bakeshop has been their newest endeavor in the food industry, opening in 2008.
