"An Original Faneuil Hall Merchant baking since 1976"

Kilvert & Forbes bakerywas originally created in 1976 when Quincy Market first opened its doors as the famous food colonnade.  At the time, founder John Kerry was practicing law, which he found to be “quite predictable and very boring." So this chocolate lover and his friend and business partner K. Dunn Gifford opened the bakery and named it after their mothers, featuring family recipes. In 1982, Lt. Governor Kerry bought his partner’s shares of the business and sold them to Stanley and Linda Klein.  A few years later, he sold his own shares to the Kleins. Even though Secretary of State, John Kerry is no longer at Kilvert & Forbes, he's still been known to order his favorite chocolate chip cookies! The Kleins owned and operated Kilvert & Forbes until July 2003, when Sara Youngelson & the late Carol Troxell decided to expand their dessert repertoire of already owned Sprinkles Ice Cream & Quincy's Place.
