History Waffelfabrik Findeisen
Here, founded the 23-year-old Kurt Findeisen in Radebeul near Dresden, the company Waffelfabrik Findeisen, which is one of the most modern factories waffle today. At that time, the production of ice cream cones was more laborious. Hand crafted in pure iron and the ice cream cone was baked, then to be delivered to the hand carts on foot.
Due to the increasingly difficult political situation, the family fled Findeisen over Berlin to West Germany. Once there, the family moved to Bremen. In the Stader Landstraße in Bremen-Nord, you quickly found a new home and could then begin production of ice cream cones again.
In the spring of this year, the first fully automatic wafer baking machines, machines of the type MZA and RDA could be put into operation. The Waffle Factory Findeisen was continued as a family in Bremen-Nord.
After the company founder Kurt Findeisen died, the waffle factory was successfully continued by his children Mary, Rolf Findeisen and Reiner.
Over the years the company grew to such that the square in Bremen-Nord was no longer sufficient, and the family had to think about a change of location. After an intensive search proved successful in Uthlede. There, the old dairy was for sale. After a successful renovation, the Waffelfabrik Findeisen 1972 moved completely to enable Uthlede.
