Note About Shipping and Local Delivery

In regards to shipping and local deliveries, please note, we cannot take responsibility for incorrect addresses and unsuccessful delivery attempts. We do NOT ship to PO Boxes. Please be sure you double check your addresses and make sure your recipient is aware of the delivery or someone will be available to receive it. We are shipping and delivering perishable items, so we do not want it sitting under your welcome mats.

Is everything available for shipping?

No – at this time there are some items we cannot ship, usually decorated items with buttercream, such as sheet cakes, cupcakes, dip decs, and tiered cakes. Some products can only be shipped overnight, so even if you choose ground or home delivery, we will try to reach you to change your order or cancel your order.

When will my order ship?

The date you select is the date your package will SHIP, not arrive. If you would like your package to arrive on a specific date you must choose overnight or second day. Home and ground shipping does not guarantee any arrival date.We do ship Monday-Friday, but if you want it to not sit in the FedEx warehouse over the weekend you need to choose overnight delivery.

We currently do not ship internationally, but we do ship to all 50 states (fyi, Alaska and Hawaii tend to cost a little more).

Three Brothers Bakery will take the utmost care packaging and handling items needing refrigeration in insulated shipping packaging. Some breads, cookies and pies do not require the insulated packaging. Please be sure the recipient will be home to receive their perishable package. In most cases the shipper (currently we use FedEx) will release packages if the recipient is not home, however there are some instances where release is not possible (apartment building with no access, unsafe area, etc…). Three Brothers Bakery will not be responsible for items delivered but no opened, packages released or packages that spoil because recipient was not in and shipper was unable to release. Please make sure someone will be there to accept the package.
