Sven Becker, bought Andy’s German Bakehaus on Commercial Drive in September 2015.

Becker started his new career modestly enough six years ago, baking German-style cheesecakes in Bon Bon Bakery’s kitchen during their downtimes. He had just finished a research job at the Biodiversity Institute of Ontario and turned 40 years old. He turned down a post-doctoral position at the University of B.C. and decided to make a break for something new.
CheesecakeGerman baking is traditionally less sweet than most North American cakes. Becker made good cakes, and he soon found a modest market selling to little cafes, private customers and other bakeries. When Bon Bon closed while moving locations, he started renting the kitchen at Andy’s. Two years later, the owners offered him the business.

Friends encouraged him. Besides, Becker had romantic memories of his childhood in Germany. “Every village had its own bakery. When you’d go on Sunday morning and knock on the door, they would even bake something for you if you needed it.”

He took the plunge.

“I am the new pastry chef of this new business,” he said. “I don’t even look at the clock. I just go in there and follow my passions and make these pastries, cheesecakes and black forest.”

Cabinet Maker Position Explained

0 Comment

Hoffman Holdings Ltd. began over 25 years ago in s small basement apartment in Montreal. What initially was a hobby, soon turned into a full time passion and a living. We have moved our business to the West Coast as it seemed more prosperous here. During the time that Jurgen worked on his own business, he also had a job with a German cabinet making company and was trained under German standards. Closely mentored by the main craftsman, he learned most of the trade working under very meticulous surroundings. The business continued as a small operation manufacturing projects in the carport of our house. Jurgen has been working in this field for over 35 years and custom cabinet making was always for him a craft with artistic creations.

As no project in this field is ever the same, customers often require specialty cabinetry. We make it our priority to manufacture what the customer has envisioned. Some examples of our projects:

– Complete Kitchens and/or refasing or building new doors.

– Bedroom furniture.

– Bathroom Vanities.

– Specialty built-ins to accommodate existing space and design.

– Projects that require specialty veneers and/or exotic wood.

– We also do commercial projects.

Now located in a woodworking shop in Port Moody, our projects have become much larger and our reputation for quality is getting known throughout the industry. No product of ours is ever sent out, we manufacture everything from raw lumber and make it into something unique. We work off drawings supplied to us by designers, or rough drawings from customers and/or we can also design and work off the customer’s rough ideas and sketches.

This ad will be shown here until the end of March 2016.

This ad will be shown here until the end of March 2016.


Our company has been growing steadily and our future holds promising. We maintain a close relationship with our business associates and customers. Though labour intense, we enjoy what we do, and try to keep the tradition of old fashioned cabinet making alive.

Now a family owned and operated business, Katherine, his wife has joined the team making sure that staff and clientele get taken care of. With a background in Communications (U. of Ottawa), Katherine does the P.R., customer service, accounting, sales, often giving an extra hand where needed (in the shop, on deliveries, etc.). Zachary our son, also works part-time on weekends with his dad and is learning the trade and has gained much experience over the years.

Although the business is still growing and because of this, it is a close-knit operation. We are looking for cabinet makers that will fit in with the same work ethics. In other words, someone who loves the trade, is willing to learn new things, and will make it a priority to be detail-oriented and can be left to figure things out on their own. Jurgen is patient and an excellent teacher, but expects the employees to listen and follow his lead. Always open to new ideas he strongly believes as he says: “there is a right way and a wrong way of doing things”. Hopefully there is someone who is passionate about this trade and will come to us for a position. German and/or European training is of course an asset. Salary is negotiable depending on level of experience. A cabinet making background is mandatory.
