Celebrating the Unique History and Culture of Chicago's Uptown Community
I checked numerous Trib issues around this time and found many ads for Burny, however no stores listed on Sheridan. Most sites were 2200 west and beyond. Burny was also located in some Jewels. They had their bakery factory at 4600 W. Chicago. FYI Burny folded into Entenmanns in 1979/80. But then I found http://burnybros.blogspot.com/, where they have a 1950 anniversary program that also includes "Schlosser" Bakery. They show 3948 N. Sheridan, so that must be it. (Can't be sure it's a Burny or Schlosser site.) Now the location of Caminos De Michuacan restaurant.Alan
Thanks for your sleuthing, Alan. That would put it by the Mode, which was at 3912 Sheridan. (The reference I caught was on Cinema Treasures, where people remembered the bakery being near the theatre.)

My dad worked for Burney brothers Bakery (main bakery)around the late 1960's. We knew the owner Jule Burney and I had a wild crush on one of his sons. Never knew what happened to that family.
Some info from 2007 article to Anonymous who wondered what happen to that family..........Jule F. Burny, age 89, passed away on Sept.9, 2007 in Palm Beach, FL. Mr. Burny had been a long time resident of Palm Beach.Originally from Chicago, IL, he had served as the CEO of Burny Brothers Bakery, the largest variety bakery in the United States. Burny Brothers was founded by Mr. Burny's father and his father's two brothers in 1910, soon after they had immigrated to the United States from France.The business grew rapidly under Jule's leadership and Burny Brothers became a household name.Upon his retirement as CEO, Mr. Burny moved to Palm Beach, FL. Mr. Burny is survived by his wife, Joan of Palm Beach, FL; children, Alice and her husband Jim Saltzman of Burr Ridge, IL; George and his wife Joan of Barrington, IL; Tom and his wife Laurie of Elmhurst, IL; Steven and Joan of Boynton Beach, FL; Julie and her husband Bill Carragher of Lighthouse Point, FL; twelve grandchildren; and nine great-grandchildren.
My father also worked there in the 1960's he was a journeymen he went by the name of Ted Rupert he was the grandfather of triplets 2 girls 1 boy. I use to love the crullers hot out of the oven. Anyone remember Desoto the night supervisor. Have a happy Thanksgiving.
