The Reason Dave Dahl Of Dave's Killer Bread Went To Jail

maybe you've sampled products from the,popular organic and whole grain brand,dave's killer bread and wondered how it,got its catchy name,you may have even heard that dave dahl,the bakery's founder spent 15 years in,prison,but what did doll do to end up there and,how was he able to start a multi-million,dollar company afterward,dave dahl grew up around his father's,bakery nature bake,according to the dave's killer bread,website it was ahead of its time in the,1980s creating handmade organic and,sprouted grain loaves,by his teen years however dahl said he,was not interested in following in his,father's footsteps he began using drugs,dropped out of high school and turned to,a life of petty crime,dahl ended up spending the next 15 years,in and out of prisons around the country,for various offences,including home burglary in between his,crimes and sentences,he worked with his brother glenn at the,family bakery after being released from,prison in the early 2000s dave dahl,rejoined his brother at the bakery,it was there that he developed a,cornmeal encrusted bread that he took to,portland area farmers markets,he called it dave's killer bread and,thus a brand was born,do we need more bread right i mean and,you said yes,we needed better bread dave dahl has,never shied away from his history as an,ex-con,the brand owes its success not only to,its flavorful organic loaves but also to,dahl sharing his honest story of,struggle and rehabilitation,when dave's killer bread launched the,packaging featured a drawing of dave the,word killer splashed across the front,and his,story printed on the back despite the,team's concerns that dahl's checkered,past might be a turn off,consumers embraced both the bread and,his rehabilitation story focusing,instead,on the positive aspects the enterprise,continued to grow from about,25 employees to 300 dave's brother glenn,had always hired felons since he,understood the challenges of finding,employment after incarceration,the dave's killer bread website states,we have witnessed firsthand that,someone's past does not define their,future,and that sometimes giving someone a,chance is all they need to become a good,seed,they eventually realized that about a,third of their staff were ex-cons and,have since continued the tradition,in 2012 they sold more than half of the,company so that it could continue to,expand,dave stepped down from his role in the,business about a year later but that,wasn't the end of his work,as one might imagine dahl remembered the,employment difficulties he faced as a,documented convict all too well,even after he managed to sell dave's,killer bread for 275 million dollars in,2015.,so in 2020 dahl invested 250 000,into nucleos a startup dedicated to,providing credentialed education and,training programs to those incarcerated,by the american criminal justice system,dahl explained nucleos gives people a,chance to do what i've done in prison,and i want to help put other people in,that direction the idea was inspired by,a drafting class he took in prison which,drew him to the realization that he,could build a life beyond what he had,before,the same things that i learned in,drafting i was able to take,to the street with me and i created,dave's killer bread using the same,principles the branding for dave's,killer bread stayed true to this story,as well in 2017 the company partnered,with san quentin state prison to launch,the second chance project,dan letchinger dave's killer bread's,vice president of marketing,told baking business i've seen,first-hand the ability of people,my co-workers to turn their lives around,with a second chance,the program's stated purpose is to,provide people with the training and,resources needed to make that turn,around and avoid relapsing into criminal,behavior,in a stunt to raise further awareness,dave's killer bread also prepared a,prison-themed pop-up in toronto in which,visitors could hear inmates tell their,stories via prison-style phones,though some questioned the idea the,proceeds went to two local organizations,that brought the arts to impoverished,neighborhoods and transitioned recently,released men back into their communities,at any rate it appears that even without,his direct presence,dahl's legacy at dave's killer bread,pushes the company to pursue reform,measures within the industrial,incarceration complex,if you or someone you know is struggling,with addiction please,call the substance abuse and mental,health administration's 24 7,national helpline at 1-800-662-help,that's 1-800-662-4357

Dave Dahl, Founder of Dave's Killer Bread

Dave Dahl, Founder of Dave's Killer Bread

before dave's killer bread my main,claims to fame were,creative drug dealing and,you know figuring out ways to,do burglaries and armed robberies i,wasn't very good at any of them but,i did a lot of them i was depressed,and,i looked at life,in a dark way,i thought that's just the way life was,because that is,when you see things that way that's the,way things are,there was a time when i was 38 years old,my fourth time in prison and i asked for,help,and it was the last thing in the world,that you do in prison is ask for help,and i did and it was the greatest thing,i ever did,i got a medication that helped me,then i went to school for drafting it,was it's,practical stuff like that that has,changed my life that has given me hope,for me learning a skill,and learning a trade,specifically,was eye-opening and exciting and made me,start to develop confidence,hope,just,good positive things started happening,the more i replaced my negative thoughts,with positive direction,it was there were less negative thoughts,and eventually it was all positive you,know,so it really is it's practical it was,like,learning to be a drafter it seemed like,it was made for me and i just kept going,in that direction,drafting came way before the bread,and i think that's really important,that uh it's the drafting that,um,made me happy it was it was it was my,first like purpose first major purpose,in life,that i could i had this power to,take something that already exists and,make it better,uh the same thing that i did with brad,was was already being i already was,doing it as a drafter that was 2001 when,i started drafting and,i got out of prison in 2000 late 2004,basically 2005,went to work you know i'm making bread,with my family,but,there was nobody there you know,kicking things up and making something,happen right it was just,let's make this product for trader joe's,and uh whatever that they want,so that that was cool uh the business,was getting by but for me,i got out with this drafting mindset,with this this design mindset but you,have to know what you're trying to,improve,um and it can't be a vague idea it's got,to be a pretty,uh it's gonna be a pretty specific idea,but but for us the opportunity wasn't,bred,and it wasn't to make what other people,were making because those guys were,already experts at that,you know we had to do something,different,and i i was a little concerned about,that i was like that's a that's a,challenge this is a challenge first of,all i have to be able to reverse,engineer it to a certain degree,i have to make a good product and then i,have to make it great,and,through a couple months of experimenting,all the time i would work a regular job,and then i would,spend many more hours testing and and,doing research,and,by the time i,had done this for a couple months you,know i'd do three batches one time five,batches another time each one was a,variable,you know i i'd have my control in my,variables,and uh,each time i learned something i either,learned this is a good idea or this is,an idea that needs to be discarded,and eventually you you make this good,product,and then you go wow this is why this,bread is good i understand why this,particular bread is good so,and it's not just like,an exchange of ingredients it's not like,okay i'm going to put seeds instead of,oats no it's,it's much more,complex two steps forward one step back,the whole deal falling down because,sometimes you,the bread you know the product you make,you have to be thick-skinned because,somebody might say,oh man you don't know what the hell,you're doing or they might think that,and you,you can't be,tripping on what other people think you,just got to be focused,and,and i i learned a long time ago that one,of the greatest,things you can do is fail you know fail,well,and,my failing always led to a better,product,and,so uh,after learning to make,other people's stuff,i,started realizing what i could do or i,would try to do to make it a better,product,and,what i ended up finding out as i did,this,was that the product was going to cost,more than other products,and in our company,there was a tendency and most companies,the tendency is to try to save money,rather than think well how much money,can i spend you know so it's somewhere,in between you go,we don't want to be foolish about,spending money but,to make a ferrari you don't cut a bunch,of corners you know and so that's what,what we did it was making the ferrari of,bread,and there was definitely concern like my,brother and people you know naturally,were thinking i don't know if people,will pay this,but,even though it was a recession,when we were growing,uh people maybe gave up other things but,they didn't give up their bread,so it worked,well i think i,i think for as far as reverse,engineering and the drafting sort of,mentality that i had,for making bread was new to my family,overall it was a different philosophy,than had ever happened in my company and,i think in,a lot of companies,you know it's an innovat

to,selling his bread company which i've,never had i'm gonna have it today live,dave's killer bread for 275 million,dollars,cash and uh he hires,ex felons ex men who did time,i think a third of their employees are,ex-felons with that being said my guest,today is dave dahl dave thank you so,much,for being a guest on valuetainment yeah,my pleasure so if first of all i read,this story i watch all your videos you,know how open you are,about things you've done it's not like,you're even hiding it you just kind of,openly share here's what i did here's,what i did there this is who i was so,if you don't mind taking a minute here,and sharing with the audience,you know your your background story or,how you went from where you were at to,start the company i think that'd be,great for starters,i had a pretty screwed up childhood the,kind of childhood that nobody,you know i can't even explain to someone,and have them,understand uh but it is what it is,and you know i was a baker my dad was a,baker,um that's what we did when we were when,we were kids growing up we didn't have,money but we managed to,get by with uh you know,producing bread you know i didn't want,to do that i had a lot of depression,when i was young and i turned to drugs,and eventually crime was really the only,thing i knew how to do besides bread and,i didn't really know how to do that,either,uh the the crime part so i had to learn,the hard way and,that's why i went to prison four times i,was not very good at it,so i did 15 years,all drug related in the sense that,everything was in order to get drugs,and uh so four trips to prison my,fourth time down i had the epiphany,uh i i got some help for my medicaid i,got some medication from my,for my uh um depression,and it actually worked for me and then i,went to school for drafting computer,computer,drafting which is a trade that was,exciting to me,i had a lot of fun with it and i,realized i was capable of doing more,than i thought,so uh i excelled at that,and eventually got out of prison,and went to work making bread and you,know work with my family,and creating my own products so,i didn't expect the kind of success that,i had but i,um i mean nobody could right and bread,but,i i had a lot of fun just,trying to make something happen i used,the same principles that i learned in,drafting the same,mental principles i was able to design,six varieties of bread which i took to,the farmer's market,the same year that i got out of prison,so and and how was it received when you,took it to the farmers market,it was like a dream you know you could,never imagine,you know i i know i went there i,remember,people coming up and trying it walking,away,and then coming back with six more,people you know,it was that kind of thing and uh,it got so so busy we were the most,popular,thing at the market really the portland,farmers market,and uh so word of mouth immediately,began,you know became our our marketing tool,the more you got the bread in somebody's,mouth the more the more you sold,it when did the company get started was,it in 2013 that it got started or,when did it when did it get started no,uh started in 2005. now my dad,started the company in 1955,but when i got out of prison it was 2005,and that's when dave's killer bread,started got it so 2005 is when that got,started so,and and dave your your background in,business,you know i know you and your brother,were running together as well,were you more on the marketing side were,you on the selling side were you on the,product development side,what was your strength to go from not,having any background to building a,company where somebody cuts you check,for 275.,that's a good question uh fortunately,you know i had an infrastructure in a,sense to start with i got out,and there was already uh a way to make a,product,uh to produce a product at a small,we weren't able to produce a lot of,product but we were able to put,to keep keep up with demands for a,little while,and uh so the thing was it gave me a,chance i got out of work,got out of prison went to work for 12,bucks an hour,the same time i was moonlighting as a,product developer,so i created these products like i said,using,the same principles i learned in,drafting i was never,so much the guy that did finances or,um you know the bean counting and all,that kind of stuff but the money was,never really,that important to me i just wanted to,make a living,and so i i just was,i got excited about the development of,the product and then,the the marketing of the product,essentially i was a product developer,and a marketer but the marketer the,marketing aspect was,it took over they took over everything,david 05 how big was the business if you,were to say like your dad's uh,was it one shop was it

The Truth About Dave Dahl From Dave's Killer Bread

The Truth About Dave Dahl From Dave's Killer Bread

what began as a gig mixing dough became,a multi-million dollar company,though he's had his share of ups and,downs dave dahl created an iconic brand,that has helped people turn their lives,around,here you can find out more about the,creator of dave's killer bread,dave dahl grew up in the 7th day,adventist church in portland oregon,his family owned a small bakery named,nature bake which made bread that was,organic and used non-gmo ingredients,though these healthy lobes are,everywhere nowadays back in the 70s,organic branding wasn't very popular as,soon as dahl and his siblings were old,enough to work they put in hours at the,bakery to help the business survive,but dahl took a detour before finding,his success in the baking industry,experiencing numerous troubles with the,law,soon enough things got so bad that he,dropped out of high school and began,using methamphetamines,in 1987 he was arrested for the first,time for robbing a house,he served multiple prison sentences i,think i went to prison the first time,when i was 25,and i got out the last time when i was,43.,after spending 15 years in and out of,prison,dahl returned to the family business,with a renewed appreciation for baking,and a desire to make the bakery the best,it could be,dahl's brother welcomed him back to the,bakery with open arms,and in 2005 dave brought his unique,meticulously made multi-grain loaves to,the portland farmers market,i could see the difference i could i,could feel it,and it was at that point that i thought,i'd love to have him back,before long the bread gained its,striking name and many fans,soon enough the dolls company garnered,massive success,and dave's cartoon mustache and biceps,began gracing supermarket shelves across,the country,and so dave's brother glenn gave him a,job at the bakery,mixing the dough in an attempt to help,him get his life on the right track,but dave struggling with undiagnosed,mental illness at the time,didn't appreciate his efforts it didn't,take long before dave arrived to work,high one day,picked fights with his co-workers and,quit when glenn confronted him,but despite their contentious,relationship when dave was released from,prison in 2004,glenn again offered him a job at the,bakery this time it was somewhat,smoother sailing for the dell brothers,though they experienced interpersonal,issues at the beginning,my first love of bread that i made was,called blues bread the second was killer,bread,and to me killer bread was just the best,bread you could make,you know to the surprise of many dave,became the unexpected powerhouse that,propelled the bakery to fame and fortune,dave dahl was in jail for dealing meth,when he began the transformation that,would change his life,but dull had to hit rock bottom first he,said,i was 38 years old in prison suicidal,trying to figure out a way to kill,myself that would work,in the jail cell was was really rough on,me because i,my head was spinning and i didn't think,i could come out of it,in a desperate attempt to get help dahl,submitted a written request to the,prison wardens,he hoped for the best knowing that it,could be his last chance to receive the,help he needed,luckily the request was received and,soon after dahl sent his message,the prison psychiatrist prescribed,antidepressants to dahl,even though dahl hadn't been diagnosed,with a mental illness at that time,it didn't take long for the medication,to start having an effect on both dahl's,outlook and behavior,i have to admit i have mental illness,and if i know that i have mental illness,i can work with that he explained,everything started working better i,started playing guitar and learning,quicker,he started taking drafting classes in,prison and finally felt some hope for,the future,slowly dull began the process of turning,his life around,he wrote in his book good seed i hadn't,found jesus,but i had found a way of living that,gave me the strength to leave the,needle behind if you or anyone you know,is struggling with addiction issues,help is available visit the substance,abuse and mental health services,administration website,or contact national helpline at,1-800-662-help 4357,dave's killer bread calls itself the,largest organic bread baker in the,united states,dave dahl's success was not easily,achieved however,with consideration to his own difficult,past dahl wanted to give back to people,who have struggled through the prison,system,this means that dave's killer bread,makes a conscious effort to hire people,with criminal records,something most companies avoid dull has,also spent time volunteering with,organizations that help formerly,incarcerated people,adjust to regular life after their,prison sentences and he has donated,money to these companies as well,one of these companies is nucleos a,start-up founded in 2017 that offers,education and training,to people impacted by the criminal,justice system,during an interview dahl referred to the,computer-based drafting

we,make selling this or it's just more of a,passion play with the artwork that we do,and the stuff that we are going on with,arts of all different various forms it's,interesting the talk,you that you're an avid and passionate,art collector yourself and I just was,interested in like the experience that,you've had with doing all this time in,prison with everything that you've gone,through getting out of prison and,getting into this art world that you're,in death what is your time in prison,have to do with this art if anything,well I think it's my you know I've,always been so as an artist I just never,really focused on it I did tomorrow I,was in prison but I didn't get serious,as more than playing my guitar oh and,then you know I think when I got out you,know I didn't get into our driveway,cause I was too busy working I was,working hard creating something you know,Craig destroy bad building that brand,but more recently you know in 2013 after,I've been at it for eight years I had,success with the bread and you know I'm,extreme success the kind of success that,kind of it's hard you to see it coming,and then I had a mental breakdown the,art just somehow started appealing to me,as a way to you know something I had to,do for me you know so I mean being an,artist somehow having an art mind just,it started with me buying things off the,internet you know on eBay did stuff for,my house and eventually it led to me,getting going down a little rabbit hole,of art and it's all carved art you know,what I mean it's all tall sculpture okay,and for some reason that still to me

Dave Dahl (Founder of Dave's Killer Bread) Talks Power of Positivity & Pro-Wrestling

the ground isn't right,I like this let's get applause going,from Portland famous well starts here at,least a little bit she says this is the,Peter Portland famous,laughter,thank you Dave thank you so much for,being here it is always a pleasure,having you on the show we are friends,yes we are haha,man those acting classes have really,paid off men as men though we're men,friends yeah actually we have t-shirts,that say men friends which really,confuse people we we got to hang out the,other day and we were watching the,blazer game together we walked the,Blazers beat the warrior warriors did,not come out plows that was such a great,game and here's what I loved but this,was kind of the same position you were,on a couch I was like kind of in the,loveseat and and my favorite thing about,coming over to Dave's is he's just like,he's got this brand new penthouse that,you live in you're on the 20 I'm not,gonna say where but I do yeah you're in,this new penthouse 27th floor he's got,like 360-degree view beautiful place but,when you go into his plan he tells you,when you go into goes there's this piece,of art right here half a million no big,deal I was like I was like okay Dave see,you later actually he was like yeah half,mil no big deal and I was like there was,bubble wrap around it and as a comedian,I was like bubbles plenty popping then,which is also true but you you were just,you jarred about was the bubbles I love,the bubbles well I'm a comedian I'm an,idiot so thank you mom um so you said do,what you want to be an idiot now I make,a living doing it and so um you were,there you know and you just had like,your cut off like t-shirt and swords and,I was gonna work out does you relate it,was Valentine's Day Dave I dressed up,for you why could you be how are you,late on Valentine's Day,you know Dave I just try to be pretty,for you and all I get is good so my,favorite part was you were like on the,couch like this like watching the,Blazers I totally wasn't you are you had,a leg up I just couldn't even believe it,why your eyes you were smuggling grapes,you were smuggling grapes you're the,most famous person I know what I want I,want to give them the real thing we were,talking about this the other day and you,said the one thing I know we're gonna,screw around you come on the show you,got such you're so quick you got such a,great sense of humor you've got many a,story to tell but you said you wanted to,talk about,howís as someone with influence uses,that and you wanted to talk about the,exponential effect of positivity and I,wanted to give you the floor for that to,people the exponential effect of you,know turning your life around you know,I've seen it happen so many times one,person you you lose a bad person and you,gain a good person that's what happened,to me right and it's happened to a lot,of other people that I've seen and each,time it happens it makes a huge,difference because the person who turns,there's their life around for being this,jackass who draws who drags on Society,are you subtweeting me right now you're,talking to me I'm not you okay but I'm,trying to get it together so so there's,the bad and here's the dirt,but you know once once somebody figures,it out and they you know like I did you,want other people to do it too and,that's that's the exponential thing,because once you once you do that you,want to share that with people and other,people do it they want to share it with,people and it makes the world a better,place and I just wanted to add to that,computer sort of riffing on this idea,the other day and what he said you know,I I like the idea it's not just you,turning yourself in to 1v1 when you turn,yourself into a better person you try,harder your influence that goes out from,going negative and the negative fluids,on your friends and family and society,and community it it's exponential it,keeps going and the voice you gain that,dave has in his second career after bred,as being a speaker and talking about the,power of positivity I think is really,fantastic and that web gets out there,and we can really do that and I just,want to say and I just want to say as,the most interesting times doing this,show has been in the past well I don't,know 15 months we played on a certain,Tuesday that was really difficult and,the idea of voting speaking your mind,and making a positive influence to make,change is exponential if you want it to,be so let's keep doing that let's not,talk it let's not talk it let's do it,yeah get off social media let's go to,people face to face and let's but let's,engage in discussions and I'm not even,discussing talking discussions across,the lines just the people that are just,around you whoever they are whatever,they believe and you know what someone,told said to me that I thought was brain,was Matt dos Santos from the ACLU the,American Civil Liberties Union and he,said if you want to connect with people,stop talking rhetoric,stop talking policy talk about what's in,your heart and I know that
