Mrs. Mauro's Potica History

In the late 1890's,sixteen year old Albina Kormornik arrived in Pueblo Colorado from her native city of Bratislava, in today's Slovak Republic. With her she brought a heritage of family recipes. One special recipe was baked during the holidays as a gift of love for family and friends. It is called Potica (pronounced Po-tee-sa, and also called Kolachi, Povitica, or Nutbread). Potica is thinly rolled gourmet sweet bread dough with a moist walnut filing.The old world taste can best be described as soft and rich--so rich and delicious that it is easy to understand why this fine food recipe has endured for hundreds of years.

Just as Albina learned the baking of Potica from her mother, she in turn passed these skills on to her daughter Emily. In 1962, at the urging of family and friends, Emily Rozbroil Mauro began selling Potica. Ninety loaves were sold. It soon became tradition to buy Potica from Emily Mauro as part of the holiday festivities. Mrs. Mauro's Company was started in 1986 with sales of over 4500 loaves. Today Mrs. Mauro's Potica is enjoyed throughout the world with thousands of loaves sold since that humble beginning in 1962. Customers include Fortune Five Hundred company's who give the delicious sweet bread to their valued customers and dealers as Holiday Season Gifts. Mrs. Mauro's maintains a mailing list of thousands of satisfied customer's. Potica is a favorite among people of Central and Eastern Europe.


Distributor and Dealer Inquirey's welcome.


The 1997 Holiday Season would bring an end to a long love affair of Emily Mauro and her Potica Company. She insisted on quality and would use only rich creamery butter instead of vegetable oil, California light walnuts versus less costly dark walnuts are just some items that Emily Mauro always maintained. Her family carries on the tradition and quality control she started 36 years ago. Emily Mauro was 85 at the time of her death.
