“Joey” works in the production side of things, following in the footsteps of his father Jimmy, from whom he is learning the business, continuing the family tradition of passing the Oteri’s know how from generation to generation.
A Cuban immigrant who’s been with the Oteris since 1989, Alcides makes all the bakery’s non-Italian pastries: Cuban, French and Spanish. He brought some of his own Cuban recipes from home, adding a Spanish flair to many of Oteri’s pastry offerings.
When Hector arrived at Oteri’s in 1998 as a helper, he spoke not a word of English. Fifteen years later, he is the only one charged with mixing the recipes Oteri’s turns into its fabulous products. Hector is responsible for mixing every dough, batter and icing on Oteri’s vast menu.
